Restaurants & Bars
A historic café…

The Gran Café de Gijón opened its doors in 1888, during the golden age of the Belle Epoque era. It was probably the most popular hang-out for art and literature-enthusiasts in Madrid. Regulars come here to relax and chat, and the ambiance is convivial and has a definite intellectual air. The terrace and garden make it perfect for a drink with friends, and in the evening the restaurant opens with a fine menu.

This café shares a rich history with the city, a history you should take the time to learn about. Be sure to ask the locals about "Alfonso", a regular whose name features on a golden plaque at the café entrance…
