Viridiana takes its name from a legendary Luis Buñuel film that was banned in Spain for 16 years during Franco’s regime. Owned by Chef Abraham Garcia, the restaurant serves hearty, flavorful cuisine, including Spanish classics such as gazpacho with crispy bread, and Galician cow tender loin with black truffles. You can try another Spanish delicacy here; olive oil. Spain is the world’s largest olive oil producer and Viridiana offers many different types, so ask to test before you buy as, like wine, varieties of oil can be distinguished by their color, flavor and smell. Located between Paseo del Prado and Retiro Park, Viridiana is one of the best places to eat in Madrid and the ideal place to replenish after a day exploring the city’s cultural delights.
