four friends and I went to the restaurant. Although I cannot understand Italian or Spanihs, but the music and the singing is really beautiful.
It will be an unforgetable night for my stay in Madrid.

Good gazpacho, bread, manchega cheese, and other typical Spanish foods. Excellent wine, the restaurant!s own. Convivial atmosphere. And I don't usually like gimmicks, but the opera-singing waiters and waitresses are awfully impressive. The best evening we've spent in Madrid.

My wife and I recently visited an old friend who lives in Madrid who took us to dinner at La Castafiore. He's a regular customer and I suspect he always brings visitors there. It's located on a narrow nondescript street/alley and didn't have much curb appeal but It was an evening we'll never forget. Food, service and ambiance were all very good but what sets this place apart is the performance by the singing waiters and waitresses. Five or six excellent singers performing classic familiar operatic pieces both during the meal and after. Engaging personalities, great music, the entire restaurant was enthralled. You don't need to be an opera buff to enjoy a wonderful evening at La Castafiore.

I recommend this restaurant for anyone who loves opera. The food is above average in terms of quality and price. But the wait staff will entertain you with their incredible opera singing talent.

Don't miss it if you are in Madrid.
