El Continental Bistró recoge en un mismo espacio el gusto por la buena gastronomía y por el arte, ya que el restaurante cuenta con una cuidada selección de pintura de artistas modernos y contemporaneos. Las obras de Ramón Gaya, Ramón Pontones, Pepe Lucas, Rosa Martínez Artero, Willy Ramos, Vicente Viudes, Ángel Haro, Pedro Cano, Sofía Morales, Manolo Barnuevo, Esteban Linares, Ramón Garza, Miguel Fructuoso, Carlos Pardo, Martínez Mengual, Enrique Santana o Parraga entre otros, acompañaan al comensal en un ambiente familiar y relajado, una experiencia para los sentidos.
