Santceloni Restaurant in Madrid

This restaurant is located within the Hesperia Hotel in Madrid, in the paseo de la Castellana, near la plaza Gregorio Marañón. It is a large restaurant with minimalist decor. Etiquette, like other classic restaurants in Madrid (Jockey, Horcher) requires formal dress (jacket and tie) and is very strict about this. When we booked a table in the Santceloni Restaurant from the reception at the Hesperia Hotel, someone from the restaurant rang our room an hour before we were due to go to remind us that sports shoes, jeans or shorts were not permitted.

The chef Oscar Velasco (with experience working in Zalacaín, Martín Berasategui and Santi Santamaría), is in charge of one of the best known and praised kitchens in Madrid producing up to date innovative and creative cuisine. Exquisite dishes prepared almost to perfection have won this restaurant 2 well deserved Michelin stars.


The menu has just 21 options to choose from including starters and main courses. The restaurant gives particular attention to 'flavour, preparation and details'.

Professional, discreet and efficient table service directed by Abel Valverde. Large wine cellar with a selection of some of the best wines in spain chosen by David Robledo.
