Ramses is a very good restaurant on a good spot in the center of Madrid. The food is delicious and of high quality. As appetizers we had ham qroquettes, penjar tomatoes and of course hand carved Iberian ham. As second course a very fine piece of Hak, as main course grilled Galician veal tenderloin with black butter. The whole atmosphere... More

A good location to have some drinks, relax and watch people. We sat on the outside terrace for a few drinks in the afternoon. It wasn´t too crowded and the service was attentive and professional. Drinks are pricey but that´s normal for such a place. Didn´t try any food but the Gin Tonic was really good. All in all, positive... More

We arrived into Madrid quite late so was happy this restaurant was still open. I love the cafe culture of the restaurant spilling into the street with the traffic going by and people passing. This place was quite busy but staff seemed to be loitering around and a little disorganised. We got the drinks ordered and they arrive promptly. The... More

We decided to try this restaurant/cafe on the Plaza de la Independencia instead of our usual "haunt" of the Hospes Hotel next door and found it to be a great spot for drinks. Surprisingly they don't sell Cava?! In Madrid, the capital of Spain which produces great Cava?! So we had to have the Moët, from France! Coffees were fine,... More

Met a friend here for lunch on Saturday. She lives in Madrid and booked this for us. We ate on the terrace. Very relaxed, good attentive staff, good food and a very stylish place with good location for a bit of people watching. We had a very enjoyable time.

Where to go on a Sunday night in Madrid? Well, if you are not opposed to Philippe Starck design, go-go dancers, fancy food, great DJs and beautiful people, Ramses is definitely the place! (PS, when the crowd disappears around midnight you can follow it all the way to Opium Club and party all night).

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.
