Basque: Taberna Gaztelupe brings traditional, upscale Basque dining to the Spanish capital. Here you'll find classics of northern Spanish cuisine such as cod, hake, squid and artichokes as well as some more local meat dishes like Madrid-style tripe. For the most part, the food at Taberna Gaztelupe is artfully presented. The list of Spanish wines is extensive, but there is a sommelier on hand if you need some orienting. Their dessert menu is also more extensive than most restaurants. The décor offers an elegant take on the old Basque tavern: the dark wood contrasting with the white walls and a selection of paintings and lamps.
