The 5 nicest terraces to dine al fresco in Madrid
1) Bosco de Lobos
Hidden in the inner court of the College of Architecture, this Italian restaurant and its terrace offer an intimate and green escape from the concrete streets of the city centre. Whether you are looking for a romantic dinner or a business lunch, the terrace suits both purposes. We also recommend dining inside, in the architects’ dining room.
Raimunda's terrace is located in the old garden of the Linares Palace (now Casa de Americas) and it is named after the daughter of the Marquis of Linares, who suffered a tragic fate. Legend has it her ghost still wanders around the palace. A beautiful green oasis with, of course, an Ibero-American-inspired menu to pay homage to the Palace.

In a small square with trees and a single olive tree, Frida’s small but cosy terrace really enjoys a tranquil setting. They serve anything from pizza to tuna tataki or a simple toast with delicious Iberico ham. A terrace where you can satisfy your morning or afternoon cravings and take your pick from a nice selection of snacks.
4) Numa Pompilio
A member of the successful Paraguas Group, Numa Pompilio offers a menu with Italian classic. The Tuscan inspired garden offers the perfect backdrop for a nice dinner. Lots of greenery, wrought iron furniture, a pergola… All the ingredients to make you feel at ease on a hot summer night.
5) Arzabál Reina Sofia
This is the latest addition to the Arzabál food empire. Open from May to the end of October, the terrace transports you to an urban midsummer night’s dream. A refreshing place to enjoy a nice selection of classic northern dishes. Their signature grilled fish and meat dishes are only available at their Reina Sofia address.
