Buffalo burrata with melon carpaccio in Olivar de Castillejo

Until the middle of September you can visit one of the most amazing places in the city of Madrid. El Olivar de Castillejo is an oasis in the center of the capital. It is a one-hectare farm that is 8 minutes walk from the Cuzco metro station, next to the Paseo de la Castellana. A place full of vegetation perfect to enjoy summer nights.

A privileged natural environment full of vegetation and tranquility where you can attend classical music concerts, book presentations or just dinner. We went to the latter.

In the Olivar de Castillejo there are five spaces, each with its own personality. In the concert area, open from Tuesday to Saturday from 8:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., performances by different classical music formations can be witnessed. There is also a bar area and high tables perfect for meetings and to enjoy an informal snack, in addition, we have the Free Damm area, conceived as a chill out, which is presented as the place to relax and enjoy a quiet dinner. Both the bar area and the Free Damm can be accessed without prior reservation.


Cantabrian anchovies with pickles on Raft tomato in Olivar de Castillejo

Another interesting space is Malquerida , a place to dine among olive, almond, rosemary, lilos, laurels, quinces and strawberry trees, in a quiet and relaxing environment. It is an informal restaurant with light and heavy dishes for the summer.

Your letter is composed of 14 dishes without divisions of first and second, all are included in the pecking category . Some dishes to highlight? For example: Pan bao de oxtail lacquered with kimchi sauce and peppermint sauce at 5 euros the unit, or also the loins of smoked sardine with guacamole and salmorejo, an entree with a mixture of flavors and textures right for 11.50 euros . Any more fish? We recommend Cantabrian Anchovies with pickles on Raft tomato for 15.50 euros is a dish that is very well balanced salty, acidic and sweet flavors.

But if you want to browse more dishes we leave the complete letter at the end of this post.
