Best of the Best: The Ultimate Madrid Food Guide

Madrid has been by far my favorite city that I’ve traveled to so far in my life that never ceases to amaze me. I felt that after having gone a handful of times to this lovely city, I thought it was fitting to write up my own blog post of my top five places to eat across Madrid from a variety of price points. 

Cebo Madrid

Fine Dining Restaurant $$$$

I think I have found another restaurant that I can add to my list of favorite restaurants this trip in the fine dining category. Cebo provides you a complete experience from start to finish that reminds you how gastronomy is probably one of my favorite types of fusion out there.  

Álbora

Mediterranean Restaurant $$$

Álbora never ceases to amaze me every time I’m there. Their cocktails always taste fresh and delicious and their menu is always creatively tasty without leaving you feel too filled up by the end of the meal.

Breakfast, Lunch & Afternoon Tea Spot

This place has always been my favorite spot when it comes to either grabbing a quick bite or enjoying people watching over a glass of rose while enjoying some jamon and macaroons.

Chocolatería San Ginés

Churros Café

If you love churros as much as I do, Chocolatería San Ginés is the place for you. Their churros are literally just the right amount of crisp served with the tastiest side of hot chocolate that isn’t too sweet nor too bitter.

La Máquina Jorge Juan

Diverse Menu from Poultry to Seafood $$$

If you’re a seafood lover, La Maquina is the place for you. Their butterfish is super fatty and delicious and their oysters are always up to par when it comes to freshness. One of the great things about this restaurant is that it is open all day long and open 7 days a week unlike most restaurants in the area that have breaks and usually close on a Sunday, Monday or even both.

Coque

Fine Dining Restaurant $$$$

Another fine dining restaurant that truly serves you a complete experience is Coque. Without giving away any spoilers, Coque provides you a unique tour around their restaurant paired with a food journey to go with it. They used to allow you to choose between two menus: one that was for what I’d say is for a moderate stomach for folks who enjoy tasting menus and one that has a few extra plates for a full experience. If you’re not into tasting menus, this restaurant may not be for you.

Aside from the restaurants that I’ve listed above, there are a few other favorite places that I didn’t list here that may be fitting for anyone who craves some difference in between their meal trips like pho or even dim sum. Find my full Madrid food guide here.
