Restaurante El Padre
Found in Madrid’s elegant Salamanca District, home to embassies and plenty of upscale shopping, Restaurante El Padre is perfectly placed for feeding the city’s great and good – and those in search of a good meal. Dishes marry top-quality local ingredients with international influences to create a well-rounded menu. And for those who want to sample a selection of what El Padre has to offer, a tasting menu for groups can be arranged with the restaurant in advance.
A highlight in its own right, the drinks menu at Restaurante El Padre is a thing of beauty, catering to all preferences. The wine list is 500 bottles strong, there’s a choice of mainstream and craft European beers, and a wide range of familiar names and creative concoctions can be enjoyed when it comes to the cocktails (around a thousand brands of spirits are behind the bar). In fact, the much-lauded drinks list keeps punters around long after the dishes have been cleared.
