Housed in the luxurious former palace of the Duke of Santo Mauro, now a five-star hotel, la Biblioteca occupies the space of the palace's library. The location has not sacrificed any of its history and charm in the process of renovating the 19th century palace, and the restaurant still displays a number of the personal articles and books from the Duke's collection.
A formal, elegant venue, the restaurant features the world-class cuisine of chef Carlos Posadas, who specialises in modern interpretations of classic Basque and Spanish dishes. They also boast an impressive collection of wine, with a selection of over 200 bottles in their cellar. And when you're done with your meal, you can indulge in a stroll through the impeccably maintained gardens adjoining the dining room. Whether you're a guest of the hotel or not, it's worth a visit to la Biblioteca just to enjoy the sumptuous atmosphere of the restaurant and see how the aristocracy of old Madrid lived.
