Eating in #Madrid #Spain

Having family with us definitely slowed us down on the gastronomic trail. We ate at many little local places, serving local fare. One of the recommended places we did make it to was a popular local seafood restaurant.Combarro – Sanxenxo.

Considered two of the best representatives of high Galician cuisine in Madrid.

The Combarro Sanxenxo restaurants have set the standard of Galician cuisine in Madrid since 1973, when Manuel Dominguez Limeres opened the first of two restaurants, devoted to the best Galician fish and shellfish that quickly positioned them as having the the best quality and freshness in the careful preperation of their dishes. Today the restaurant group is run by his son Diego Dominguez, he has been newly appointed president of the Association of Young Restaurants of Spain,

When you walk in the door, you are standing on a glass floor, overlooking an aquarium, perfect for the three yeard old with us.

 

A visit to Museo Nacional Del Prado here you can see artworks by Goya, Velazquez and El Greco. Storing over 8000 artworks, the Padro Museum offers an expansive survey of Western paintings, from the Middle Ages to the 19th Century.
The Padro Museum also houses the most comprehensive collection of Spanish painting in the world. If you visit museums around the world, this one is a must.
