Our large group had its farewell dinner here in Madrid. It was well worth it. The steak could have been more tender, though, but the salmon was a large perfectly cooked portion. If you wanted your steak cooked less rare, they quickly took it back and made the change, The vegetables were hot and savory. Good bread rolls. Nice white and red wines. Our group enjoyed a local Spanish singing group. Nice atmosphere in the lower level. Our experience was limited, and it was designed for a group, so I cannot speak to the rest of the menu.

There were 46 of us for dinner at this restaurant so it was no small feat to serve us all promptly. The servers were all very nice and friendly though.

The menu was preset as soup or salad, salmon, veal steak, or paella and baked Alaska for dessert. Everyone said their food was really good. There was entertainment by way of a local 3 piece group in old spanish attire. Really added to the atmosphere of the old cafe.

The cafe itself is very attractive inside and a lovely place to have dinner.

The intellectual in you forces you to have a cup of coffee at least at Cafe GGijon. Ortega y Gasset used to hold court here. Hemingway actually drank coffee here although it wasn't one of his drinking spots. In the summer there is an "annex" of the restaurant in the middle of the paseo but I like a window table in the main restaurant. The food is Mediterranean and excellent.
