The 8 Best Restaurants in Madrid

Madrid is the city to visit for restaurants which are dripping with awards and accolades. From experimental seaweed lollipops at La Terraza, to classic Spanish cuisine in a Duke’s library, the city offers cuisine and ambiance to suit every mood.

La Biblioteca at Hotel Santo Mauro

La Biblioteca restaurant was once the library of the Duke of Santo Mauro, and original features such as the antique fireplace, book-lined walls and cherry wood paneling remain to provide a scholarly ambiance.
Accommodating 24-30 diners, the Biblioteca provides an intimate dining experience and offers a cellar of over 200 wines. In summer, visitors can enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail on the restaurant terrace with views of the charming Santo Mauro walled garden. The chef here has produced an imaginative Spanish menu, of which a highlight is La Biblioteca’s à la carte breakfast. Located in the palace’s old dance halls with glass doors opening onto the hotel’s garden, AC Santo Mauro’s meeting rooms double up as private dining rooms.
