Best for Romance - Expert review of Ramon Freixa Madrid

Superb Michelin-star cuisine in a striking setting.

Ramon Freixa won a Michelin star for his new restaurant here at the Hotel Selenza in less than a year, and got the second in November 2010. Hardly surprising really. After years based in Barcelona, he left his dad in charge of his other restaurant, El Raco d'En Freixa, and came to Madrid. With its black-and-white decor, marble floor and Baroque flourishes, dining here transports you back to a more glamorous age. This is a real special occasion place.

In summer, the Foro Freixa tapas/cocktail bar in the courtyard is also pretty good.

Food and drink: 

A la carte and taster menu available. Dishes might include langoustine cappuccino, white asparagus velvet, lobster in three ways, wild turbot, rabbit stuffed with apricots and pistachios... you get the idea. The wine list is very long indeed. Let the sommelier advise you.

Ambience: 

Elegant but not in a stand-on-ceremony way.

Service: 

Professional in the extreme.

Location: 

In the upmarket Salamanca area, with the smartest shops all around.

Price advice: 

Menus range from 65-95 euros. There is usually a good-value package for a night in the Hotel Selenza including dinner. I don't mean cheap -  we are talking about a five-star hotel and a Michelin-starred restaurant here.
