Kitchen seasonal Spanish gourmet

Atmosphere trendy and informal

Triciclo (“tricycle”) is the result of a culinary journey made by the 3 young chefs, all in their mid 30s, who worked together in the beginning of their careers. They each chose a different culinary path, working in top restaurants across Europe – like DiverXo by star-chef David Muñoz (3 Michelin stars) – and eventually returned to Madrid to embark on a common venture.

Triciclo’s vision is simply “the place we would like to eat in”. And the chefs have definitely managed to create a stylish space, which attracts both culinary snobs and more traditional diners. Their seemingly simple menu offers thoughtful skill and produces perfect dishes.

When launched, local bloggers and critics praised the restaurant as being “The ultimate gourmet hotspot.” the British Guardian named it one of “10 best tapas bars in Madrid”, it won a Michelin Bib Gourmand accolade (given to restaurants serving “exceptional food at affordable prices”), and Muñoz himself recommended it as his favorite spot in the city.

Triciclo offers 3 gastronomic routes: from the market – dishes prepared from fresh ingredients, based on seasonal selection. Minimal intervention and maximum flavor; Gourmet – sophisticated, articulated versions of traditional dishes; and Fusion – dishes combining a variety of flavors and ingredients, inviting diners to take an adventurous culinary journey across the globe. Each dish is offered in 3 portions, so one can taste everything with a clean conscience.

Signature dishes
  • Fresh white and green asparagus with cod pil pil and dried fruits
  • Tiradito fresh white shrimp, passion fruit and chili peppers
  • Seafood salad and herbs
  • Fried brioche soaked in fried vanilla ice cream

One more thing The restaurant's name is not only an allusion to the trio who leads it, but also an homage to one of them: chef David Alfonso was a professional cyclist for 8 years.

“Triciclo's simplicity is compensated by a high degree of culinary expertise. This is showcased in well-prepared and attractively presented dishes that encompass the personal and traditional, as well as oriental and fusion influences."
