Coque, Madrid, Spain

Coque (coal in Spanish) is a very expensive (340€) 2 Michelin star restaurant in Madrid Spain. There are five total Two star spots in this great city. (Available 160€ optional wine pairing)

It was the only two star spot with reservations available, making it a default splurge meal on our Spain trip. Yelp only has 5 reviews, Trip Advisor gives it a 4.5 with 400+ reviews. This spot is known for 3 Sandoval brothers running the elaborate restaurant with multiple settings for your meal. It opened in 2017 in a location that used to be a disco.

  • Coque also has a Michelin Green Star for sustainability as most products are produced on their own nearby farm.

You start downstairs in the bar, then move to the wine cellar, sacristy, kitchen and then the dining room. People guide you up and down the elevator. 10 final courses in the dining room.

Even though the meal took about 3 hours, pacing was fairly close with few long pauses.

Service was beyond excellent. Could not ask for much more. They anticipated all your needs, filled glasses, clean our crumbs away, etc.

The server understood English and they give you an English printout of your meal. There were times when we could barely understand what she said. No issues with dietary restrictions. Vegan/Vegetarian option available.

Food review:
We had the normal menu and their vegan menu.

This restaurant is definitely worthy of its two stars. The food is top notch as is the service. There were some courses that did not work. Breaking up the meal into several areas makes dinner much more interesting than sitting in the same chair for 3 hours. As with most Michelin starred tasting meals, it is all about the total experience, not just the food.

The vegan/vegetarian meal was just okay. It is geared more for allowing someone with dietary restrictions to dine with a person with an unrestricted diet. Our vegetarian meal at 1 star Encanto in Porto, Portugal was far better.
