Iroco, Madrid

A cross between A Midsummer Night’s Dream and an Italian arte fantasy, the outdoor terrace at Iroco is the stuff of fairytales. With tables nestled between overhanging trees, dimly-lit lanterns adorning low-hanging branches, this is the perfect setting for a romantic rendez-vous.

Typical of the upmarket Salamanca district, the menu and service are understated and classy. From sashimi and seafood risotto to steak tartar and fresh tuna, these are foods for sophisticated palates.

With prices ranging from 13 to 24 euros for a main and 8-10 euros for cocktails, this really isn’t bad value for money for the priceless surroundings and stellar service. If you can stretch to a bottle of the Marques de Murrieta Reserva, the most delicious Rioja around, you’ll be in heaven.
