“FANTASTIC, my best dinner in Madrid!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We had a great evening last night at Viridiana, starting the restaurant is very charming the owner/chef came to our time to explain the specials so from the beginner we could tell it would be a good evening and indeed it was. Food, service, atmosphere all perfect for sure my best dinner in Madrid. P.S you must book it as we were on waiting list

“A must while in Madrid”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

This is a place to go in a special occasion. The tables are very close, the restaurant is very small and you can enjoy the beautiful dishes others are eating.

The service is very good and attentive, the food is presented in such an original way that you are already enjoying it while it is bring to your table and you are tempted to take pictures or steer at it forever. Then you eat it and another dimension of happiness and pleasure kicks in as you enjoy the flavors.

If you go during Christmas time, order the "Helado de Roscón de Reyes". Indeed the best ice cream I ever ate.

“A classic remains in its place”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Some years ago I met in Viridiana Camilo José Cela, the great novelist and gourmet. It was an unequivocal sign that I was in the right place. And still it is. Meat, vegetables or fish, everything is prepared outstandingly following the Iberian instincts of Abraham, the owner and chef. Excellent wines at reasonable prices. Do you want to know a distinguished Madrid restaurant? This the place to come

“Amazing atmosphere and cuisine!”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

When entering the restaurant, I did not expect what I would experience. This is a small restaurant with amazing service, great chef and perfect cuisine. This restaurant is new and definitely deserves at least one Michelin star. So if you are looking for an unbelievable evening, try visiting this restaurant!
