We loved the coziness of Viridian, the warmth of the service, the delicious meals the chef prepared, the wine list, everything was perfect!

We had a very mediocre meal at this place. The menu is small and well crafted but lacks any real stand out dishes. We had lamb for main which was cooked to perfection but the salad was basic. For the price this place is very average and we ate in some other spectacular restaurants that were far superior and cheaper.

The restaurant is very close to the Prado museum and Retiro Park. Nice place. They serve a gratuitous first dish of smoked fish and a bowl of a twist on gazpacho soup which were great. I also enjoyed the seafood salad. Unfortunately my husband's main dishes were very disappointing. He tried the lamb which he did not like at all.... More

Read these great reviews on the Tripadvisor website so decided to book a table as a birthday treat for my husband. At the end of the evening, I must admit I was a little disappointed...We were one of the first to arrive around 8.30pm (Mon evening) and were asked whether we wanted to sit upstairs or downstairs...I chose upstairs but...

This restaurant was great. We could walk to it from our hotel which was also a plus. They started us off with little bites of fresh anchovies and a strawberry soup with herring in it. It was great! Everyone was very helpful. The service was great.

This is one of the best meals I have ever had in Madrid. The chef is experienced and a master of flavor and technique. The ingredients are honest and fresh. He does know how to bring out all the flavours inherent to the Spanish cuisine. Wonderful for a business or a romantic date! Conveniently located close to El Prado. Will... More

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.
