After having dined at Viridiana I am baffled as to why so many of the reviews are so positive. My partner and I dined there in late August the experience was mediocre and expensive. The food was good but not exceptional, and the service was risible. In our reservation, we had noted that one of us doesn't eat fish or... More

Dined twice in 4 days it was so good. Excellent and inventive food. With many specials on offer each day. The chef also produces substantial amuse bouches which differ from table to table and make the different flavours a surprise and treat. A small restaurant with decor from Bunuel films and flamenco music in the background. A good position near... More

After having amazing food in 2 and 3 Michelin star restaurants in Rioja and Bilbao, we didn't have so much expectations from this restaurant in Madrid. But we were surprised! The food was fresh and tasty. I recommend the Hake, probably the best Fish & chips (without the chips) I ever ate. The wine list was expensive, especially comparing to... More

I struggle to imagine how anyone could rate the food and service at Viridiana anything less than excellent! No, it's not the kind of food that you would find in midwest America, but that's the point! It's unique; it's creative; but incredibly delicious and satisfying. The Gazpacho is utterly amazing and since tomatoes are a fruit, it's not such a... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Viridiana. We were greeted at the door and led to our table by a friendly waiter. Before receiving our salad, we had the complimentary strawberry/seafood gazpacho. Contrary to another reviewer, we loved the soup, (however a small bowl is just enough). We also had the complementary Iberian ham and melon. The salad we shared and... More

Not sure where all these positive reviews are coming from. We were recommended to this by the Ritz concierge. Had two choices of red wine by the glass, a Ribera and a Rioja. Staff nice enough to let me try both. Bread was ridiculously hard....seriously, how hard is it to get bread right!? Gazpacho soup pre-appetizers had a fishy taste... More

We went for dinner last night and were sent there on the recommendation of a very famous Spanish chef. We began with the gazpacho, a dish I grew up with and loved, they added chunks of strawberries and herring to it! I get the sweet and salty thing but this did not work. The bites I had of the soup...

This restaurant was round the corner from our hotel - the food and the ambiance are excellent. However, the Butter Fish main course, although delicious, should come with a health warning. This was the first time I had eaten this fish and in some people the fish acts like a strong laxative, as it did for me. This gave me... More

This is a place to go in a special occasion. The tables are very close, the restaurant is very small and you can enjoy the beautiful dishes others are eating. The service is very good and attentive, the food is presented in such an original way that you are already enjoying it while it is bring to your table and... More
