Café Madrid has long been Salt Lake City’s go-to location for authentic Spanish dining. Since its opening in 1997, it has offered top-notch food, professional service, and a cozy environment in which to dabble in the finest of Mediterranean tapas, entrees and desserts. Owned and operated by Spanish restaurateur, Gabrielle McAfee, Café Madrid has kindly made Spain’s best flavors available to residents and visitors of Utah.
Though Salt Lake City has dozens and dozens of outstanding restaurants, one of the ways by which Café Madrid has made itself such a star in Utah’s culinary scene is by always catering to all of the senses - by paying as much attention to the atmosphere of its dining room as to the flavors of its food. And though it remained in its beloved, original location for 15 years, a recent move has rendered the restaurant even better. The new-and-improved Café Madrid is much larger - with three dining rooms and an outdoor patio. And though the new version is much more spacious, its partitioning and carefully assembled décor has preserved or improved all the intimacy of the previous location.
Since 1999, Café Madrid has won a steady stream of local and state-wide awards, including “Most Unique Restaurant,” “Best Bistro,” “Best European,” “Best Tapas,” “Best All-around Sensory Experience,” and “Best Restaurant” in Salt Lake City. In recent years, Café Madrid has even won recognition as a Top 100 Restaurant in America. Stop by and see for yourself what exactly makes this one of the nation’s top restaurants - but be sure to make reservations.
