Top 10 Stylish Restaurants: Madrid

1. Amazonico

Amazonico: Calle de Jorge Juan, 20

An exotic feel overwhelms customers — ranging from socialites, to fashionistas and businessmen — upon entering the restaurant. The name has been chosen by Sandro Silva and Marta Seco (owners of some of the most exclusive restaurants in town) to revoke the jungle and justify the green interior design by Lázaro Rosa-Violán. The cuisine dominates people’s palates by incorporating colorful, tropical cocktails with perfectly plated dishes, and can be followed by some live jazz and drinks in their club downstairs.

2. Bibo

Bibo: Paseo de la Castellana, 52

Also designed by Lázaro Rosa-Violán, the two-star Michelin restaurant offers Andalusian cuisine with personal touches of the chef Dani Garcia, owner of the Dani Garcia Group (now acquired by Relais & Chateaux).

3. Barcelo Hotel Torre

Barcelo Hotel Torre: Plaza de España, 18

Located in one of the most iconic and tall buildings of the city, at the entrance you are immediately greeted with a giant statue designed by Jaime Hayon, who curated all of the details of the interior decor, featuring its furniture and art pieces,  — including ones crafted in partnerships with Fritz Hansen, &Tradition, Gubi, Arflex, Cassina and BD Barcelona. Furthermore, some rooms feature the work of the photographer KlunderBie.

4. Bocadillo de Jamon y Champan

Bocadillo de Jamon y Champan: Calle Fernando VI, 21

With an at first simple, natural design, the interior of this restaurant/bar designed by Lucas and Hernandez Gil‘s studio, is conceived in such a way to reminisce the delicate fizz of a glass of champagne.

5. Bosco de Lobos

Bosco de Lobos: Calle de Hortaleza, 63

Not only this freshly designed space is great for an outdoor brunch, but it is located in the architecture school on Calle Hortaleza (COAM), a space that offers also interesting exhibitions (the last being World Press Photo and Loewe’s Craft Prize). Designed by Tarruella Trench Studio.

6. Only You Hotel

Only You Hotel: Calle del Barquillo, 21

Yet another incredibly designed space by Lázaro Rosa-Violán, featuring majolicas, doors in cupboards and an amazing brunch restaurant (filled with also delicious gluten-free cupcakes) called Celicioso.

7. Fismuler

Fismuler: Calle de Sagasta, 29

Designed by Alejandra Pombo, in collaboration with Arquitectura Invisible, and centered around the concept of sustainability, the restaurant offers Spanish food with a Scandinavian touch.

8. Habanera

Habanera: Calle de Génova, 28

Cool Cuban Vibes, cool music, and great cocktails by renown bartender Carlos Moreno.

9. NuBel

NuBel: Calle Argumosa, 43

Hosting various events with music and drinks, it is the cool bar and restaurant (designed by Jean Nouvel) of the Reina Sofia Contemporary Museum — perfect motivation to go see Picasso’s Guernica too.

10. Valgame Dios


One of the places to be and be seen. To have a drink at night and go shopping during the day, it offers good food and a fashionable environment. P.S.: if you know someone, or just want to give it a try, check out El Amante, a small club by the same owner not far from this bar!

11. Pinkoco


Another boutique bar, offering cool vibes, drinks and their own products sold upstairs: ranging from furniture accessories to clothing and cosmetics.
