Entre Suspiro Y Suspiro
Entre Suspiro Y Suspiro is a family-run Mexican restaurant in Madrid in a restored palace and is fun, romantic and stylish, all at the same time. Just off Plaza de Isabel II, home to metro Opera, Entre Suspiro Y Suspiro is a cut above the other rather touristy joints in this area and certainly superior to the usual run-of-the-mill Tex-Mex.
You won’t find any sombreros hanging from the walls here. Instead, there are vibrant, modern paintings by Mexican artists (the owners themselves are painters). Lemons in huge wicker baskets sit on the floor around the bar, ready and waiting for repeated requests for pre- or post-dinner margaritas, and are also used to add some colourful decoration to the latticework dividing the dining areas.
The food is elaborately presented Mexican haute cuisine, but portions are small so you’ll probably want to order three courses here, especially after you’ve polished off all those margaritas.
