Good restaurant

We had lunch after a visit to the museum. The view is nice, the food honest. The fish were very good and fresh. There's good options in the menu, and it's not very expensive. It's a good place to eat near the three most important museums in Madrid.

My title says it all, after visiting the museum the restaurant seemed a good extension to the experience. A lovely outdoor area with views of palms and flowers, tables set with flowers and a menu with something for all tastes at reasonable (for Madrid) prices. Don't be fooled, the service is achingly slow, the food lacks taste and freshness, not... More

We had just got off the plane so taste buds jetlagged, but very lovely setting and nice food. Cheaper to eat inside in cafeteria but we need fresh air! Museum is great too. Nice size.

The setting is lovely, the restrooms smelly and the food even worse. It felt like we got the leftovers from the day before warmed up. All was dry and tasteless. The steak was cold, the burger of duck bone-dry. The ceviche of cooked mussels had no inspiration. The octopus is better in a gas-station along the highway in most places.

We arrived about 2:30 and the Restaurant was crowded and the staff over-extended. They simply could not handle the people there, although there was nobody but us awaiting a table. The menu was very limited and difficult to find anything not glutinous to eat. My wife sensibly ordered a tomato salad, which was tolerable, albeit a bit thin for luncheon.... More

Great view, of course. But not much else. The food is terrible, quite overpriced and it takes forever to get delivered, which is quite puzzling given the amount of staff that they hire. Really, not worth it for dinner. Maybe have a drink there and eat somewhere else. The service is nice, once they appear, of course.

Staying in Paseo del Prado

Neighborhood Profile
Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
