In a small street near Caixa Forum, there is one of the best kept secrets in Madrid, a 17th century warehouse where monks used to brew wine. It also served as a hideout for the Napoleon troops, as a shelter during the Spanish Civil War and now, with great taste, as an avant-garde gastronomic haven, a place to enjoy good food, forget about what happens in the outside world and to time travel. We’re talking about Bodega Los Secretos.

La Bodega Los Secretos invites you to get lost in its maze of niches, with wine bottles waiting before reaching maturity. An architectural gem with Romanesque arches that recreate small spaces with tables and private areas for groups, it is the perfect place for a romantic dinner.

The menu features Mediterranean food with a nod to Eastern cuisine. For starters we recommend artichokes with foie, tuna tartare with seaweed or Andalusian-style stuffed squid with apple aioli. As a main course, try one of their rice dishes, for example mushroom risotto and crispy cheese or the classic paella. If you prefer fish, a good choice is anglerfish with Iberian ham and parmesan cheese or hake with squid ragout and leek glass. For meat eaters there is a fabulous beef tartare or Iberian pork marinated in honey. And for drink, choose among a brief yet correct wine list with the main Spanish wines and cavas from small producers.

Desserts include chocolate coulant with mango ice cream and then a gin tonic to enjoy a bit more this special place. The average price per person is about 30 euros. This spectacular space can be rented for events, product launches or showcooking.

Bodega Los Secretos is the result of the combination of tradition, history, modern design and good food.
