El Viejo León is one of those classic and elegant restaurants that never fail to impress. It’s no wonder considering its more than three decades of functioning when it comes to serving one of the best French cuisines in the heart of Madrid.
El Viejo León's menu, as well as its impeccable decoration, takes diners back to a time of romanticism and attention to detail, which is why there are classic recipes such as chateaubriand au whisky or grilled duck magret with pear sauce.
Do not forget the other classics of French cuisine in El Viejo León, such as frog legs, snails or the cold leek Vichyssoise. All with an attention and a service that reminds us of the best restaurants in Paris, but in this case, in the heart of Almagro in Madrid.
As one could assume coming from a place with these characteristics and category, El Viejo León is ideal for a romantic evening, or a small family celebration, thanks to the cosy and formal ambience it offers.
