Within walking distance of the Plaza Mayor in central Madrid, El Cosaco is in a quiet little square with tables outside if the weather's favourable. I liked this restaurant because it had ambience, small and comfortable with tablecloths and candles, it exuded cosiness. The food was excellent. The menu ranged through fish and meat dishes, semi-international in character with overlays of Spanish traditions.
We had the set Imperial Menu at €78 for two, giving a cold smoked fish and caviar starter then two different steak dishes, one in a sauce and the other a Stroganoff, followed by dessert and coffee. It was all beautifully cooked. The wine list was reasonably priced and the set menu ended with coffee and a drink on the house.
There are many good restaurants in Madrid and probably many just as good as this, but if you want to be reasonably certain of good food and in cosy surroundings, this is it.
