Zalacaín offers a more formal fine dining experience in a setting full of old fashioned elegance. It offers Spanish and international cuisine with carefully selected seasonal produce. It was one of the first restaurants in Madrid to gain 3 stars in 1987. Although today it only has one, Zalacaín is still seen as a fine culinary experience.
Spoiled For Choice
This Michelin starred restaurant has a truly outstanding wine list with over 800 types of wine from all over the world. Their skilled sommelier seems to have an infinite amount of knowledge and is happy to guide you through their “book”.
Dining at Zalacaín feels like taking a step back through time, with its heavy carpets and crystal chandeliers conjuring a classically smooth atmosphere which isn’t seen very often. It makes a stark contrast to the busy city outside. Some of their signature dishes include beef steak tartare with soufflé potatoes and wild mushroom ravioli.
