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.

2) Raimunda

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.
