  2. Botín

    On the authority of the Guinness Book of Records, Botín is the world’s oldest restaurant, having opened its doors in 1725. The dining rooms retain much of their original decor including azulejo tiles and oak beams, and the atmosphere is convivial. Botín is famous for Castilian fare and the house speciality, roast suckling pig .

  3. La Broche

    A leading member of Madrid’s culinary élite, chef Sergi Arola has already earned La Broche two Michelin stars for his creative way with traditional Catalan recipes.

  4. Lhardy

    Another Madrid institution, founded in 1839, Lhardy’s upstairs dining rooms are wonderfully intimate and more than a touch elegant with belle époque gilded mirrors, wains­coting, Limoges china and Bohemian crystal. The cooking is madrileño rather than French, the house speciality being cocido (chickpea stew) .

  5. El Cenador del Prado

    This fashionable restaurant has a great location in the heart of Madrid’s old quarter. Chef Tomás Herranz has been accoladed for his inventive menus, inspired by Spanish regional cooking.

  6. Isla del Tesoro

  7. Viridiana

    Named after the Buñuel film, this cosy modern locale is located between Paseo del Prado and Retiro Park, and is owned by chef Abraham García. This is the perfect restaurant for a special occasion; the menu is imaginative and the wine list is superb.

  8. La Trainera

    Named after the long row boats in the Bay of Biscay, where the restaurant owns a fishing vessel, La Trainera has expanded into a labyrinth of rooms with pine tables and chairs. The menu uses a variety of seafood, not only from the Bay of Biscay but also from Cádiz and the Mediterranean. Try the delicious shellfish salad, salpicón de mariscos and grilled fish .

  9. Zaranda

    Co-owner and chef, Fernando Pérez Arellano has worked with both Gordon Ramsey and Michel Roux. His excellent training can be seen in the innovative, international menu, and in the attention to detail. .

  10. Asador Frontón

    What madrileños prize here is succulent meat and fish, cooked in the traditional manner over charcoal. If you still have room, try the rice pudding (arroz con leche) .
