I have to admit that I am a big fan of Spain. Especially when it comes to food.
I discovered this restaurant by chance and every time I feel “Mediterranean-sick” (this happens very often), I return to Olé Madrid – most of the times together with Spanish friends.
The dark red-, ochre-painted walls together with the dark-coloured wooden bar create a very welcoming warm southern atmosphere, even if the temperatures outside may not remind you of Andalusia. I am definitely a big fan of the tapas: “patatas bravas”, “pimientos de padron”, “chorizo a la cidra” and “alcachofas a la vinagreta”, these are always the first ones that I will order.
Every day has a special, eg Sundays are „Paella days” or on Wednesdays every tapa comes with 0,2 l wine for free. My favourite by far is the „Noch flamenca” on Saturday: at 21:00 there is an amazing show from two flamenco dancers, a must-see! Only be sure to reserve a table before you go, as on Saturdays the restaurant gets full fast.
