Lovely views, gorgeous food and first-class service. That more or less sums up a visit to Café del Río. Located next to Madrid Río, this restaurant is the perfect place to have a drink after walking along the banks of the Manzanares. From its upper terrace you can take in the Royal Palace on the other side of the river, which is a spectacular sight around dusk.
The menu has a bit of everything, from fried snacks and toasted bread with a variety of toppings to meats, rice dishes and fish. Highly recommended are the 'carabinero' prawn croquettes, the black rice with calamari, oxtail puff pastry, and the bluefin tuna with wakame. They've also got a very reasonably priced set lunch menu with a variety of choices. Don't miss it.
