In England, when you go to a museum, the cafe is usually really good. But in the US, I find predominantly fast food, heavy on the microwaveables and fried foods. So I was surprised and happy to find this cafe! Why go to the over-rated, expensive, crowded Prado restaurant when you can go here? It's open air, with a view of the sculpture garden and the California tower and dome. We both had salads and I have to love a restaurant that serves in mixing-bowl size dishes. I hate salads served on little plates, as they usually heap it up and things often tumble off as you eat. Or maybe I'm just a really sloppy eater. Could be. Anyway, I had the strawberry, candied nut, and greens salad with balsamic dressing. Ooh, SO good, and not too pricey, for the amount you get. The service was a little cold, but efficient. I asked for extra bread, assuming there would be a charge and he seemed grumpy with me. He didn't charge, so I'm guessing he thought I was trying to get something for free. Oh well. Anyway, I would definitely go again. It's the only good food in the park, as other museum cafes are the fast-food kind.
