Open to the public since 2003, El Club Allard still maintains the sophisticated feel of an exclusive private members’ club, which is what it was originally founded as in 1998, although it has been open to everyone since 2007. Considered one of the major gastronomic temples in Madrid, it also holds many diverse cultural activities, ranging from painting exhibitions to literary presentations as well as the Enrique Ponce & Allard bullfighting awards.
Álava-born chef Diego Guerrero was in charge of the kitchen El Club Allard up until 2013. After 12 years in the job he has left a mark of quality on the food served here, combining flavours and textures to perfection in simple yet original recipes. Current chef María Marte has kept Club Allard's two Michelin stars following Diego's departure. After taking the reins as head of the kitchen, María follows Diego's successful trajectory, keeping many of her mentor's dishes on the menu, while putting her own stamp on the exclusive Club Allard, where she started work ten years earlier as a kitchen hand.
