We chose to eat at the Viridiana largely because it was a short walk from our hotel and despite mixed reviews. We were happy we decided to eat there. The food was imaginative and tasty without being pretentious. The strawberry gaspacho with herring boded well for what followed, as did the quality of the bread (cheese and yucca). Indeed, there seemed to be a South American touch in some of the dishes, with nopal being included in the salad. The pigeon was perfectly cooked without any imaginative flourish. They have an extensive wine list with some bottles being quite expensive. Very few half bottles, but they served decent wine by the glass. At Euro 170 for two, the bill was what we expected for such a meal. The service was pleasant and professional. If we lived in Madrid we would return.
