Went here in late June at the recommendation and with friends. My first reaction was "this is really fancy-shmancy" and it was. Nice to see all personnel asiatic and possibly Vietnamese. Service was good and courteous and prompt and the place was possibly 45% full on a Wednesday night. I liked the food but having eaten Chinese the day before... More

The first time I went to this restaurant I considered the food really good, good service, well cooked and a very good experience. After that I went with 12 business people, we took the menus and it was as good as before. This weekend I went with my family, did not take the menu and it tasted like an average... More

I booked days in advance to make sure I was given an outdoor table. The ambiance is great and the menu is simply amazing. Their appetizers are very tasty, specially for a seafood lover like me. I'd recommend the shrimp spring rolls and the soft shell crabs. Awesome for a special occasion.

My wife and I visited Cafe Saigon for the first time on Three Kings Day 2014 (a national holiday in Spain). We had made reservations for 8:30 PM (20:30) via the El Tenedor web-site for a 40% discount on main dishes, appetizers and desserts (but not drinks). It is easy to satisfy the minumum requirements to qualify for the discount.... More

This was a great break from tapas (as much as I love them). The food at Saigon was beautiful. We ordered the "Surtido de entrantes Cafe Saigon" and it was a fabulous sampler of their appetizers. We then ordered two mains: Rape con salsa de coco y lemongrass and Tallarines de arroz con carne de cangrejo al curry. This was... More

Great food. Start with the Pho stew, and end with some lovely deep-fried soft-shell crabs. Maybe some tiger prawn rolls too.

One of my favorite foods is Vietnamese. I have eaten at many Vietnamese food at many restaurants throughout the world, but it was such a pleasant surprise to find Cafe Saigon in Madrid. The decor is very pleasant, the service was outstanding and the food was fantastic. They offer an al la carte menu and a set menu. After reading... More

Being our first time at this restaurant, my husband and I ordered the degustacion menu for 2, However we left feeling hungry because the portions were very small!. Everything was cooked to perfection and very well presented. However, we plan to go back in September with friends, but we will order off the normal menu which we noticed what most... 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.
