Although this restaurant is situated in the most famous shopping street Calle De Jorge Juan, it is a true find that rarely appears in Madrid guide books…BIG mistake. Squeezed in between a shoe store and club Egö, the entrance does not suggest the size and grandeur of this restaurant. The large dining area in the back comes with an adjoining patio garden with a (not for swimming) pool. The service is excellent, the food exquisite. A good suggestion are the truffled Albondigas (meatballs) accompanied by one of the Spanish wines from their prestigious collection. The modern interior is rich in glass, from the wine cabinets to the walls surrounding the garden to…the restrooms. Although Pan de Lujo offers lunch too, be sure to come here after sundown to fully experience the restaurant’s unique lighting that changes in colour. Book well in advance to be seated near the pool. Dress smartly, bring your friends, lover or business acquaintance and enjoy a perfect evening out in the elegant Salamanca neighbourhood of Madrid.
