Madrid Food & Drink Guide
Ah, Madrid! Spain's central capital, with its elegant boulevards and expansive, manicured parks such as the Buen Retiro, it’s the perfect place to escape to year-round! Our designer, Madison visited a few months ago and is sharing some of her favorite spots!
You'll find below our top list of restaurants in Madrid, godere!
Looking for a romantic spot with delicious and authentic cuisine? Ten Con Ten is the perfect spot to wine and dine at! Pro tip: You’ll want to make a reservation; you won’t be the only one hoping to get a seat! Ten Con Ten stays busy…and for good reason!
Amazonico, think West Hollywood meets SOHO, in less than 3 months after its inauguration, the Amazonico Restaurant has became THE hot spot in the Spanish capital. In short, the place is wonderful, original and with a completely different decor from everything you’ll see in classic Madrid. The quality of the food is fantastic which makes it a perfect fusion.
Inspired by old Madrid Grocery stores, the popular, bright and original, Quintin Restaurant is a stylish spot with the perfect backdrop for your dining photos. Decorated with warm colors, the bar and high tables lend themselves to informal snacking, while the large windows invite you to taste the delicious menu. Life bustles in this populated corner of Jorge Juan street. Come by Quintin for brunch before exploring, you’ll be glad you did!
La Trainerais, unlike some of the restaurant we’ve mentioned, is an old school and traditional spot. Some say La Trainerais is the best fish restaurant in Madrid! Like Ten Con Ten, you’ll want to plan ahead with a reservation.
Streetxo is worth a visit! This famous Michel star restaurant is absolutely fabulous. The Madrid restaurant is on top of department store on Serrano. You can’t book a reservation but can often go early to secure your seat with no issue. Enjoy great food but beware the music is loud, easy to ignore thanks to their great cocktails and handsome waiters in straight jackets.
Looking for a fantastic lunch spot? Arzabal is our obvious recommendation. It’s a traditional yet recently renovated restaurant with market cuisine. Arzábal invites guests to enjoy traditional cuisine, create unforgettable memories and experience a tapas bar like never before. Fabulous wine selection as well!
Habanera is one of the newest bars on our list! While the drinks are delicious, you may want to grab snacks elsewhere. Great décor, perfect spot, lots of fun! This place is truly best for drinks.
Marieta is the place to see and be seen. Marieta is a very cool spot with a fun vibe. Work benches, platforms at different levels, a private table with two fireplaces, several bars and at the heart of the premises: is the kitchen, with a central island where guests can see how the different dishes are made. Enjoy your Marieta's experience!
Regardless, you can't go wrong in Madrid. We hope you enjoy exploring when you travel to one of the most beautiful cities!
All the love,
