This is where Sargo, the reef of Madrid, comes into play. Why? Because it doesn’t really matter whether you order meat, fish or vegetable dishes…. your choice will always be the right one!

Fried aubergines with honey
Every time we try this dish, we always find the same problem. Once you try it, in the end, all are the same. Sadly, this time, it was not an exception.
Despite being a large starter, it did not surprise us at all. Although we liked its outer texture since it was crunchy, we found it quite tasteless. In our opinion, the best of this dish was its delicious sauce.
It could be much better!
Chistorra of Arbizu with red peppers and caramelized onions
Unlike the previous starter, the chistorra of Arbizu surprised us pleasingly. Although it could not be compared with the size of the aubergines, its flavor compensated everything else. The chistorra was not very intense, so the rest of the ingredients could have more prominence.
This was our favorite starter. Sincerely, we would love to try it again. So, we strongly recommend it!
Secreto ibérico marinated with pickled vegetables
The secreto ibérico is a risky dish. Although it is the star dish of numerous restaurants, people tend to overcook it, so it is too dry to enjoy it. Luckily, this time was really juicy and tender. Besides that, it was served with a sauce that made it even more tasteful.
But the most surprising thing about this dish was its presentation. It consisted of a closed wooden box that, after opening it, revealed its inside secret among aromatic smoke of thyme. What a great idea! We loved it!
Braised beef cheeks with scallion and sweet potato purée
We consider ourselves enormous fans of this dish. Each time we see it, we choose it… Ordering it in Sargo was an excellent choice! The meat was so tender that I cut it using just a fork. But the best thing about the dish was its broth, in my opinion, it was perfect for dipping bread in it!
The braised beef cheeks were served with a scallion and sweet potato purée that provided a sugary and very pleasing touch. Altogether, it was perfect. We strongly recommend it!
If you are a cheesecake lover, Sargo is a must-try! We ordered it because the waiter suggested it. She literally said that it was exquisite. And, to be honest, she was totally right!
At first, we expected a more generous slice because of what the waiter said. In the end, after trying it, any kind of disappointment disappears instantly. Its flavor and texture make it one of our favorite cheesecakes. Possibly, it was the best we’ve ever had! If you eat at Sargo and you don’t try it… You are losing your time!
Although Sargo is also called the reef of Madrid, as you can see, they have exquisite meat dishes too. In general, all the food was formidable. Added to affable waiters, we assure you that it’s an excellent place to eat. We have no doubts… we’ll be back!
