Metro Bistro Madrid

Metro Bistro Sign

 

Metro Bistro lies in the heart of Madrid,  a very short stroll from Plaza Mayor.  It’s a small restaurant, unassuming from the street, but they offer  fine quality dining with a very creative menu.

 

Metro-Bistro bread

Start with some bread sticks, interestingly seasoned butter, and a celery mojito.  Yes, that’s right – a celery mojito.  Not bad actually.

 

Metro Bistro food 1

Some very tasty humus along with Croquetas Artesanales moves the meal into more serious territory.

 

Metro Bistro diners

The small restaurant is divided into two dining areas.  In the front, dining is a bit more casual, fronted with windows on the street and near the well appointed bar.  The area in the rear of the restaurant is a bit more formal but comfortably so.

 

Metro Bistro Truffles

Gigot de cordero (lamb, truffles, and creamy potatoes) was a good choice for a main dish.

 

Metro Bistro Scallops

But perhaps the best dish of the evening was the scallops and black rice with a lovely sauce.

 

Metro Bistro Desert

The fine meal at Metro Bistro was rounded out with a bit of sweet – pineapple cannelloni with half frozen yogurt and mango sauce.

Metro Bistro  Madrid has a nice contemporary, yet casual vibe.  The food is creative, tasty and offered with eye appealing presentations.  When visiting Madrid you will surely spend some time in Plaza Mayor.  While there you can eat at one of the many restaurants which fill the Plaza with outdoor dining venues and have some of the standard tourist fare.  Or, as an alternative, you might consider catching a very interesting meal at Metro Bistro.
