Highly varying service quality: Restaurant Ático by Ramón Freixa (11. December 2016)

My expectations were rather high – especially given that the restaurant is by Ramón Freixa. To be completely honest upfront, they were not fully met. The restaurant is located on the 6th floor of a hotel and when you get up there, you are warmly welcomed by a lovely friendly waitress who brings you to […]

Marvelous view over Madrid: Azotea @ Circulo de Bellas Artes (11. December 2016)

Marvelous view over Madrid: Azotea @ Circulo de Bellas Artes (11. December 2016)

The Uber driver who picked me up from the airport recommended this place. A place you would definitely not come across randomly as it is kind of hidden (the entrance) and it looks like a theater or the like and not like a roof top bar. The entry to the Azotea @ Circulo de Bellas […]

Lovely bar in a lovely park – but too slow service: Bar Estela (10. December 2016)

Lovely bar in a lovely park – but too slow service: Bar Estela (10. December 2016)

When you visit Madrid, you definitely have to pay the “El Parque de Retiro” a visit. It is a vast green area with a lovely rose garden, a little lake in the middle, and a large number of small streets to stroll. When you have walked through the park and feel like a break, there […]

Traditional hotel bar with limited drinks selection: 1912 Museo Bar Palace (10. December 2016)

Traditional hotel bar with limited drinks selection: 1912 Museo Bar Palace (10. December 2016)

The 1912 Museo bar – which references to the year in which The Westin Palace Madrid was opened – is a great hotel bar. The interior is kind of traditional but then again that is what you would expect from a hotel which is 100+ years old. The waiter is relatively attentive and shows up […]

Crowded market with outstanding atmosphere: El Mercado de San Miguel (10. December 2016)

It is almost 3,5 years ago since I have last paid the El Mercado de San Miguel a visit (1. June 2016) and I was absolutely looking forward to paying the place another visit. This time I went for a bit a larger selection of dishes starting with the “Crab Burger” (EUR 3.50) which looked […]

Impressive Flamenco show with decent food: Restaurant Corral de la Morería (9. December 2016)

The ‘Corral de la Morería’ is famous for the flamenco show it puts up – and apparently a lot of people including celebrities have visited so it is absolutely crowded and very advisable to book a table in advance! If you only watch the show, it’s EUR 38.90 plus 21% VAT, so EUR 47.07 which […]

Simple in its design yet lovely: Bar La Chusquery (9. December 2016)

It was admittedly a bit tricky to find a decent bar in this area but finally we stumbled upon the La Chusquery which is a perfect combination between ‘lovely’ and ‘dirty’. The entrance part of the bar is designed very lovely, however, the back part of it not so much. With a glass of “La […]
