Not far from Plaza Mayor, in the heart of old Madrid, stands EL VIAJERO, a three-storeyed nineteenth Century building with flowered terraces and balconies, opening out on Plaza de la Cebada. We are at La Latina, the most popular drinks and eats route in old Madrid.
Ever since it first opened its doors to the public in 1995, it has been considered a must by most recommended travel guides. However, El Viajero preserves its madrileño atmosphere as a traditional meeting place for local artists and young professionals.
With it’s large windows and magnificent views, this lofty venue hosts a Mediterranean Restaurant on the ground floor with a terrace on Plaza de la Cebada; a lively cocktail bar on the first floor with airy French windows, and a tapas bar on the roof garden with stunning views, where you can enjoy spectacular sunsets over the domes and steeples of the old town.
House specialities include the celebrated Uruguayan beef steaks from our criollo grill, and exquisite vegetarian dishes, not forgetting the choice home-made sweets and special mojitos.
