“The Mirror” is one of the most popular and established restaurants in Madrid, and not just for its art nouveau interior (with lots of mirrors, of course) but also for its moderately priced menu. Their wine list is excellent, the waiters are child-friendly even by Spanish standards, and the menu focuses on local specialties such as callos a la madrileña (tripe) and gambas a la plancha (grilled shrimp). Reservations suggested, especially on weekends. On sunny days, try the glass pavilion nearby, called Pabellón del Espejo, for drink, snacks and lunch. It offers a grand view of the tree-lined street and the imposing National Library.
