Cervecería Giralda

Updated February 2015

giralda barA stone’s throw from the cathedral, this used to be THE place to eat in Mateos Gago, and it still remains one of the best.  Recommended: solomillo al whisky, (tender pork loin in a garlicky whisky sauce), chipirones fritos (small fried squid) and the flamenquín (a roll of pork loin, jamón serrano and cheese, breaded and deep fried). Excellent house rioja and a good selection of other wines by the glass.

If you show up and find all the tables are taken (quite usual) just tell one of the waiters you are waiting for a table , either inside or on the terrace, and he’ll put your name down on the waiting list and suggest you have a drink at the bar while you wait.
