LUNCH WITH A VIEW - PICALARGATOS SKY BAR
During our stay at Madrid, we searched for a place with a view to have lunch. We decided to go check out a place called Picalargatos sky bar. The restaurant is located on Gran Via street, which is the main and the most crowded street in Madrid. As soon as we stepped out of the elevator, there was no doubt that this restaurant was the best choice we could made. The rooftop view is stunning the place has an lovely atmosphere, which is perfect for a couple to have a glass of wine, cocktail and to enjoy their delicious food.
At the beginning, we decided to take a glass of red and white wine. The waitor was very friendly and helped us with the choice to meet our wishes.
When we looked at the menu, we noticed that the restaurant has a beautiful menu of selected dishes. We were sure, that everyone would find something that suits them.
Again, the waitor was providing us with the information about the offer. For dish sampling, he recomended "Bravas montera" and "Creamy Acorn-fed Iberian ham croquettes". The main chef Javier Muñoz-Calero really knows his business. Stunning.
For main dish, we decided for “Barbaque squid with lemon” and “Beef Loin”. Both dishes were amazing with just perfect hint of herbs. We also ordered “Vegetable garden on embers”, which is a mix of vegetables, to add a green sense to our lunch.
Because every great story has a sweet ending, we also ordered something sweet at the end of our lunch in Picalargatos. There was no doubt what to order when we noticed “Chocolate Souffle with Chantilly”. If you like sweet chocolate desserts, you must take this one. It is an amazing feeling when the warm chocolate melts in your mouth.
If you like restaurants on the rooftop with an amazing view, relaxed atmosphere and a classy touch, you must visit Picalargatos sky bar in Madrid. We recommend it 100%.
Thank you for hosting us.
