This modern, boho brasserie is in an enviable, historic location.

Lechuga has become one of the most popular hangouts for lunching professionals and in-the-know visitors. Located in the same square Picasso was born in, this restaurant's food and décor combine the contemporary with the traditional. I enjoy catching up on the latest news with their free papers and tucking into a wrap, as I overlook one of the oldest parts of the city.

Food and drink

The internationally-influenced menu consists of sharing platters, starters, and warm and cold tapas; but the big draw here is the inventive salads - my favourite is the goats' cheese and blueberry, or the smoked salmon and egg, or the... I could go on...

Ambience

The terracotta walls, wooden tables, timber shutters on the windows and the youngish crowd help to create a chilled-out vibe.

Service

It's no frills, but always with a smile.

Location

It's on the south side of Plaza de la Merced - with a perfect view across the square to Picasso’s birthplace.

Price advice

Try the menu del dia, which includes three courses and coffee, for 8 euros.
