Admirar el Palacio Real desde su terraza sería motivo suficiente para volver, pero como al hombre se le conquista por el estómago, el Café de Oriente (grupo Lezama) también demuestra su buen hacer en la cocina. Su gastronomía se sitúa a caballo entre tradición y vanguardia y su carta la salpican platos como el Cappuccino (un doble caldo de buey concentrado con una espuma de alioli que se ofrece en el aperitivo), los salmonetes en costra de carbón con falso cous-cous de verduras y salsa de coco-jengibre o un riquísimo mar y montaña. Después de comer, lo mejor es dejarse conquistar por su sorbete de mojito y disfrutar de sus vistas (en la terraza) o de su preciosa decoración estilo años 20 llena de rinconcitos con mucho encanto.

INSIDER tip

Reserva mesa en su comedor de la planta baja para cenar en una preciosa sala abovedada de ladrillo visto (en su día eran antiguas caballerizas).

    Awful experience. We arrived 5 minutes before the booking: 8:30pm and were ask to wait for 5 minutes before being placed. 25 minutes after, still waiting. We were offered (not free of course), a drink to wait without knowing why we add to wait. The waiter told us that we booked for the terrasse which was not the case (you cannot specify such thing with thefork and went to this restaurant to go in the room downstairs which looked wonderful on pictures). We refused to go outside and asked to eat in the main area / the bar which they accepted but had to wait another 25 minutes for them to prepare the table (2 glasses and some cutlery). We booked with the offer : special menu at 25 euros on thefork which contained aperitivo and some special item. They had never heard of that menu apparently. When I told them to ask internally (because there is obviously someone who manages the relationship with thefork) they told me they did not know and someone "from the internet" probably posted the menu on thefork... Sense: 0.
