Today I took my family to the restaurant Pelotari, and sadly I have to say that was an awful experience. First, we ordered a Sangria and it tasted more like a tinto de verano, and even though it tasted like cheep wine. We asked the...More

This is a great restaurant. I have been here many times and they maintain the quality, specially in meats and dishes from the vasco region. Traditional place that is better for business and for lunch with friends

We had trouble booking a table in advance through their website but emailed them and it worked out perfectly. As far as we could tell, everyone in the restaurant except us was Spanish, and we would not have had a table if we hadn't booked...More

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
