Why do we recommend El Tormo?
The most renound “manchego” restaurant in Madrid situated in the very traditional Travesía de las Vistillas street in Madrid, five minutes’ walk to the Royal Palace and The Cathedral of La Almudena. El Torno offers traditional baroque style cuisine bringing history to the table. Great value for money and one of the best options to enjoy a traditional Spanish restaurant in Madrid.

Style of this restaurant
Spanish gastronomy derives from a very complex history and the influence of many cultures, but also a very diverse landscape. There are very large differences from region to region and despite Spanish gastronomy is meant to be “Mediterranean”, local dishes are to be found in each region or province. There are some very famous “national dishes” like paella or fideua from Valencia, cocido from Madrid, Gazpacho from Andalusia, Pan amb tomato from Catalonia, pintos from Basque country, octopus from Galicia and the list goes on and on… A restaurant offering traditional spanish gastronomy may opt in its menu to offer a selection of some of these dishes.
