A cosmopolitan and innovative gastronomical space, Ramses restaurant, which is also a champagne bar and club, welcomes its guests just a stone's throw away from la Puerta de Alcala in Madrid. Inaugurated in November 2007 by Philippe Starck, this trendy classy establishment is the place to be in the Spanish capital, the only address in Spain to have been created by the famous French designer. You can take a seat on the terrace, but the inside is really worth it if you have nothing against a subdued, even gothic atmosphere lit by candlelight. Another original feature: the high table and chairs, whereas your gaze is drawn to the ceiling, to the strange symbols traced in chalk on a black table (triangles, mathematical formulae, statistics). For more typical setting move to the floor, to the traditional Spanish café, which is inspired by the Baroque period and has a cocktail bar.
Whether you are on the terrace, in the café or at the high table, you can try a fusion of Mediterranean and Asian cuisine, caviar, oyster carpaccio with grated parmesan, a salad with strong goat's chees or sushi. The festivities begin incontrovertible croquetas in the form of tapas. During our stay, we particularly enjoyed the duck breast with raspberry jam.
