-CLOSED- We'd be lying if we didn't say this is one of our favourite restaurants in Madrid. First for its location, on the top floor of the Escuela de Pías with a spectacular terrace. Having a beer while watching the sun set over the traditional Madrid 'corralas' apartment blocks or taking in the still-standing church ruins next to the school as they're lit up at night are a couple of the greatest pleasures of the city. In summer you might have trouble finding a table, whether you want to just have a drink or sit and have a meal.
The menu is also among the strengths at Gau&Café. Aubergine and courgette tempura with rosemary honey and parmesan, hummus, nachos, 'salmorejo' (similar to gazpacho), salads, egg dishes, salmon tartare... the list of treats is so extensive that you'll have a hard time choosing just one dish. They also have a daily lunch menu and specials for vegetarians.
