The welcoming Castro family presides over this little charmer lying between Calle Serrano and Paseo de Recoletos, near both Plaza Cibeles and Plaza Colón. For 2 decades they have welcomed some of the more discerning palates in Madrid. Eduardo Castro, the chef, is a local personality and a whiz in the kitchen. He is known for such dishes as a perfectly grilled rape (monkfish). Steak is cooked with savory green peppers, and a chateaubriand appears enticingly drenched in whiskey. Fresh turbot and hake appear regularly on the menu, and rich game dishes such as partridge are featured in the autumn. Choice cutlets of Segovian lamb are awakened with garlic cloves. Fresh flowers and bucolic art make for a soothing decor.
