Príncipe de Viana Restaurant in Madrid

The Príncipe de Viana, established in 1963, is another of Madrid's classic restaurants (similar to Horcher, Jockey, etc). It is located near Bernabeu.

Although criticised for its lack of innovation and creativity Príncipe de Viana remains firmly conservative cherishing its traditional Basque-Navarran roots - dishes such as mixed vegetables, cod, meat balls and delicious desserts on the menu. Clientele include important members of Madrid's political and business elite.

Both equisite and distinct in the quality of products used, professionalism, table service, decoration and elegance. Javier Oyarbide, son to the original founders, runs the restaurant in a traditional classic style.


Tomás Barrio directs the table service which is very efficient. Excellent wine list. High prices. Reservations recommended.

The founders of this restaurant opened another establishment in 1973 in Madrid, el Zalacaín, which was the number 1 place to dine out for many years.
