Time Out says
Rubaiyat has been in Madrid for more than 15 years, and more than 60 in Latin America, when Galicia native Belarmino Fernández Iglesias arrived in Brazil, and the story of a family and a restaurant group began. The group is now a benchmark when it comes to the treatment, cuts and grilling of meat.
Brangus cattle and Tropical Kobe beef are raised on their own farm and have made them world-famous. In Madrid, you can sit at a table in the spacious and bright dining room, which was renovated in late 2017 to have a more modern interior design, or at one on the outdoor terrace, and enjoy recommended options such as the Tropical Kobe beef tasting menu, the chorizo steak (a classic Argentine entrecôte from Brangus) or the star dish, the Queen Beef Wagyu, with an unparalleled smoothness in texture and flavour. Accompanying garnishes such as soufflé potatoes can compete with the most reputable in the city. In winter, the 'feijoada' (Brazilian black bean stew) on Saturdays is a must.
With the incorporation of Daniel Redondo (Maní, Sao Paulo) as executive chef in 2017, and his right hand Mariana Argeoli, came excellent seafood additions such as cold lobster cannelloni, fish of the day, and 'bacalhau à bras' (a traditional dish made with salt cod, potatoes and eggs).
