A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Este restaurante, que lleva el nombre de su dueño Esteban González, es el resultado del esfuerzo de toda una vida (nadie dijo que fuera fácil) por cumplir un sueño. El Rincón de Esteban ofrece una cocina clásica con productos de temporada y no es raro encontrar en sus mesas a personajes famosos del mundo de la política. Entre sus platos más conocidos encontramos el ‘Manda huevos’ (en honor a Don Federico Trillo), el foie de oca al Pedro Ximenez y pasas de Corinto hecho en casa, la perdiz a la toledana o la paletilla de lechal con patatas panaderas. Ricos guisos de cuchara como las alubias de Tolosa, las patatas revolconas o el cocido madrileño salpican su carta. Y, sin duda, los más golosos tendrán que reservarse para probar los borrachos rellenos de crema y nata (bien de dulce).

Insider tip
Merece la pena comer aquí todos los días. Pero venir en las jornadas temáticas de Caza, en las de bacalao y en la época de San Isidro te permitirá probar menús especiales muy top.

    Wonderful service by Esteban himself. It’s like eating as an invited guest at his home. Fun loud atmosphere. And amazing service by all. A small place but not at all rushed through our meal. Very nice wine list too. I would go back again tonight. Goat cheese salad was fantastic.

    El Rincón de Esteban is a gem in the center of Madrid. Food was fantastic, the service super and the ambiance welcoming. This was my second time at this restaurant and it was as good as 15 years ago.

    This was our second time at the restaurant and we felt rushed, the food was very much under cooked and was sent back twice. The food was returned butchered, but at least warm Very over priced for what we received tonight and very disappointed.
