Affordable New Year’s Eve Dinner in Madrid: Taberna el Sur de Huertas

Finding an affordable New Year’s Eve dinner in Madrid, can be tricky – but I am just back from Madrid after celebrating Nochevieja/New Year’s in the Spanish Capital and I had a delightful dinner at Taberna el Sur de Huertas.

In the lead up to my trip I was struggling to find an option I could afford, but I stumbled across an article but I found this article by Devour Tours and I am so glad I did, because my dinner at Taberna el Sur de Huertas did not disappoint!

Below are more details about the booking process, menu and my review (spoiler alert: we loved it!). If you’re planning on spending New Year’s in Madrid then leave a comment or send me an email as I would love to share my recommendations with you!

How To Book

I booked my reservation two months in advance (confirmed the booking in October for dinner on 31st December). This is essential! Ifyou are planning on spend New Year’s in Madrid try and book your dinners as far in advance as possible, as almost all the affordably priced restaurants are booked up by November.

It was super easy to book – I emailed with an enquiry, they got back to me in 24 hours with a link to the menu and I payed the deposit via bank transfer.

Price for New Year’s Eve Set Menu

60 Euros per person (price correct as of Dec 2022)

This included a three course meal, half a bottle of wine each (my sister doesn’t drink so she was offered a soft drink), a welcome glass of cava and a coffee/tea to finish. Amazing value for money, when we were walking around Madrid we saw other restaurants advertising dinners from around 150 – 300 EUROS per person!! No wonder this place gets booked up so far in advance!


We arrived at 9pm and were finished at around 11.30, and as the restaurant is so centrally located we had just enough time to find a place near Plaza del Sol to catch the fireworks/New Year’s countdown.

Starters: Grilled prawns and avocado & goats cheese salad

New Year’s Eve Dinner Review:

The waiters were attentive, ambiance nice and relaxed and the perfect way to end 2022 and welcome in 2023.

All of the food was delicious, but the real highlight of the meal for me was the beef tenderloin served with roasted potatoes and padron peppers – it was so well seasoned and the beef was cooked perfectly.

The portions were great, and by the time the desserts came (a chocolate cake and cheesecake) we were so stuffed we could barely finish them!

I would definitely recommend – email for bookings
