RAMSES, a cosmopolitan and innovative restaurant, was born under the majestic arch of Madrid's Puerta de Alcalá. Its design and decoration are made by Philippe Starck whose baroque and scenic style brings us into a luxurious and sophisticated universe. RAMSES is divided into three differents ambiences, Bistro - Petit - Club, each with its own name and each on a different floor.Bajo la atenta mirada de la Puerta de Alcalá se encuentra RAMSES, un espacio gastronómico cosmopolita e innovador, con diseño y decoración firma Philippe Starck, cuyo interiorismo barroco y escenográfico nos introduce en un universo de lujo y sofisticación.

Style - but not a massive amount of substance

The restaurant is hugely popular, and its not difficult to see why. One of the most stylish restaurants I have visited for some time. Whilst the food is good, it is not stand out.

Love the place, from the terrace, the champagne bar, the 2 restaurants, greatest location in Madrid. At night on week ends you have a club where exclusivity fits perfectly

We had a private chefs table, the room was quite hip not sure if they were going for shabby chic or its getting a little worn? The food was very good especially the main course and desert. Service was good, polite and attentive. I can't comment on the value for money as this was part of an expenses paid trip.

I am so sorry, but I am just not into trendy. Especially when the emphasis is on Hip and Urban at the expense of food. The presentation of the food was excellent, but a few things were slightly off. The salad with Mussels and Cockles was just way to salty, as was the fish with roe. The dessert chocolate ball,... More

The anticipation of visiting the Philippe Starck designed Ramses far outweighed the actual experience. As we were quite a large group we ate in the downstairs Gourmet Room and the meal itself was brilliant – interesting dishes comprised of quality ingredients. Unfortunately the service was really quite poor, bordering on rude – both in the upstairs bar area and during... More

Maybe the famous interior designer Philippe Starck charged the owners so much money that they have to spare on the food they serve in plates... Fish of the day was nice but pricey, Hamburgers where OK, desserts were clearly disappointing and wine was cheap in taste (not in price). Go have a look and choose wisely if you prefer to... 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.
