Among the myriad of El Barril establishments scattered across Madrid, each boasts a unique charm, and its prime location coupled with an enchanting outdoor seating area that beckons you to bask in its ambiance.

El Barril is synonymous with culinary brilliance. Here, you’re treated to the finest seasonal vegetables; imagine savoring succulent tomato salads during summer or indulging in the delectable confit grilled artichokes come winter. The offerings don’t end there. Dive into a platter of the freshest fish and seafood or perhaps a cut of their exceptional meats. Yet, for many, it’s El Barril’s signature rice dishes that keep them coming back. Each El Barril restaurant has its unique rice rendition, but one thing’s consistent – they’re all irresistibly good.

A hallmark of their dishes is the smoky touch imparted by the grill, a flavor profile adored by many. This smokiness, combined with the delightful atmosphere and impeccable service, makes dining here an unforgettable experience. These stellar attributes are not exclusive to just El Barril de Orense but resonate throughout the establishments under the Grupo Oter umbrella. As the largest restaurant conglomerate in the city, boasting 25 restaurants and a chic nightclub, they’ve carved a niche for themselves in the culinary landscape.

Further elevating their stature, the Oter Group’s affiliation with the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Spain, the world’s time-honored gastronomic association, is a testament to their unwavering dedication to quality and excellence. At El Barril de Orense, every meal is a celebration of flavors and an ode to fine dining.
