Welcome to Madrid
Lhardy is the first luxury restaurant in Madrid. Inaugurated in 1839 by Eugenio Huguemei, it represents the splendour of Spanish and international haute cuisine, endorsed by its more than 175 years of leading role in the life of the city. It is part of the Asociación de Restaurantes y Tabernas Centenarios de Madrid.
It has a main dining room, the Salón Isabelino, and 5 private ones: Salón Japonés, Blanco, Sarasate, Gayarre and Tamberlick. Decorated with a nineteenth-century elegance that remains unchanged over time, they have witnessed important meetings of politicians and intellectuals who have decided to overthrow kings, republics, regencies and dictatorships.
With the Grupo Pescaderías Coruñesas as the current owners (following its purchase in May 2021 by the Garcia Azpiriz family), Lhardy’s menu has introduced some changes, whilst trying to maintain the essence of the restaurant. It maintains its much appreciated Madrid stew prepared with the finest ingredients and following an improved recipe; recovers some Lhardy dishes, such as Caneton Duck from Landas roasted in orange (a century-old recipe); the Lhardy Consommé, to which a free-range egg and fresh truffle has been added; the Fillet Wellington with English-style potatoes; the marinated Foie del Ampurdán or Marinated Partridge with dumplings; and its famous Soufflé, without forgetting the Lhardy Tripe or the Stew Croquette.
The new dishes on the menu include Galician Lobster Salad, Clams from Carril sautéed with Palo Cortado sherry, the Smoked Salmon from Pescaderías Coruñesas with Lhardy egg threads or Evaristo Sole in Champagne (with capers).
Lhardy also has a shop where you can buy a wide selection of delicatessen products, as well as choose from a large variety of wines, company gifts and Christmas baskets. It also has a home delivery service.
It is worth mentioning that the restaurant's customers have one and a half hours of free parking in the Seville Metro car park.
