    Great place with a lot of history. Established in 1888. Many intellectuals have met there during a century. Service great and food too.

    The food and service was good but we were not able to eat in the dining room as we planned. Very disappointing.

    The fixed price 32€ Menu Del Dia was one of the best we have ever enjoyed .... perfect service ... a lovely window table and a nice bottle of Rioja included, too. This is one of the great historic cafes of Europe ... lovely! But reserve ahead or you will not get a table at lunch!

    This is a nice Spanish restaurant. It is a historic place and many people were getting their photo taken outside. The service is classic. I have been here several time.

    The 30% discount mentioned in the offer is nothing but lie! The waiter said we need to order more food to get it. For example, deserts. For each person! The food and service was good enough so I was going to leave good tips, but after what I heared we paid the check and left. For those who want to get discount in this restaurant: forget it or get ready to fight for it!)))

About the restaurant

El Gran Café Gijón, fundado en 1888, forma ya parte de la historia de la ciudad de Madrid. Ligado desde siempre a la cultura, este local se ha convertido en toda una institución. Su interior, forrado en cálida madera y materiales nobles, respira historia y vivencias de todos aquellos que han pasado por aquí.

Su carta de cocina tradicional española ofrece platos como el bacalao al ajo suave o los canelones rellenos de changurro. Mención especial merecen postres caseros como el tocinillo de cielo con helado o el frixuelo relleno de crema y nata.

Histórico café de tertulia literaria de la capital que ha sobrevivido a nuestros días, cada año se celebra el premio literario que lleva su nombre.
