Amazing cuchinillo! Better than Segovia

We tried the restaurant's special 25th Anniversary Menu and it was one of the most delicious meals we've ever had in Spain. The cuchinillo was outstanding - excellent crispy skin and succulent meat. Our companions selected lamb and tuna escabeche instead, but the cuchinillo was by far the most... read more

Horno de Juan serves the best piglet in Madrid by far. The whole menu is traditional but short (everything revolves around the wooden oven). Service is correct. It is a real shame that the place was completely empty and that punters are favouring restaurants with a 'to be seen' concept but with far inferior food.

You could go all the way to Segovia and, yes, get excellent cochinillo (roast sucking pig) or go to Horno de Juan. The restaurant is decorated in the old world style so again you have just saved a trip to Segovia. Crunchy skin, tenderest of pork meat. Horno de Juan is a winner. The restaurant also offers Tudela lettuce which... More

This place was recommended by a local and he was not wrong ! Only opened at 8pm (bit of a shock for us Scots !) but well worth the wait. The main course food was slow in coming, but we very much enjoyed the entrées that we had not ordered. The cochinillo (roast 1/4 piglet) was delicious ! Must have... More

Always open for new things, we discovered this little restaurant during our short Madrid trip. It was a pity that only 7 people were visiting during our stay (we were a bit early I think). We went for the cochinillo, a speciality in this place and for a fish dish and both plates were of very good quality. The little... More

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighborhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
