Some years ago I met in Viridiana Camilo José Cela, the great novelist and gourmet. It was an unequivocal sign that I was in the right place. And still it is. Meat, vegetables or fish, everything is prepared outstandingly following the Iberian instincts of Abraham, the owner and chef. Excellent wines at reasonable prices. Do you want to know a... More

When entering the restaurant, I did not expect what I would experience. This is a small restaurant with amazing service, great chef and perfect cuisine. This restaurant is new and definitely deserves at least one Michelin star. So if you are looking for an unbelievable evening, try visiting this restaurant!

15 international colleagues had a fantastic meal. Excellent quality of ingredients were enhanced by inspirational flavours. All of us were highly impressed; even our Italian colleague! Splendid service also. I would love to return.

A bad night? Abraham was there so it was not an absence of the chef that explains it. My guess is that we re talking decline. A second, excessive (I have never had to say this before--ever) unsolicited appetizer that seemed as if the kitchen was trying to get rid of stuff. A dried up pasta dish with fancy poultry... More

This is surel not a place to go to when travelling on a budget, for it is very pricey, but the food is really good, some things you couldn't find elsewhere, service is really attentive, wine card is brilliant, but the prices are... well,,. high, Still worth a visit, watch out for opening hours, make a prior reservation. Easy to... More

This is a small restaurant and I went there on a Sunday night, not a busy night in Madrid for eating out. We booked a table on the main floor and not downstairs, it is small so I do recommend that you book ahead of time. We went straight to the main course, but were offered an excellent small lentil...

It is a rare and wonderful moment when all the elements of a restaurant experience come together in perfect harmony. Such a moment was my supper at Viridiana. I had been looking forward to this meal for months and made a reservation before leaving for Madrid. On a quiet residential street, just blocks from the Ritz, one comes upon Viridiana,... More

Went tgere on recommendation of a Madrilean friend. The tables are rather small, but the interior is very nice and the atmosphere is comfortable (no tourists except for us). We were not recommended the grand menu, as it was quite late already, but we could share raciones, so each of us tried 3 dishes, plus 2 amuse-bouches, which were so... More
