If you are tracing Jose Rizal's favorite haunts in Madrid, you'd likely come upon Viva Madrid at Calle de Manuel Fernandez y Gonzalez, 7. Its murals, glazed tiles and the Rizal marker will grab your attention. And more.
Do step in and grab a table inside by the columns. A Pinoy waiter will likely lead you to "Rizal's Corner". Order a paella negra, if you like, and while waiting for it to be served, have a bebida and some pintxos.
We went a second time, hoping to order the same paella negra but no paella come New Year's Eve :-( The gambas, ravioli, albondigas y patatas did not disappoint though. All good that we found their "to share" portions too small. 🍷🍴
Good ambience, lovely interiors, packed with history, good food. What else are you looking for?
