A stone's throw from Madrid's Fernández Park, on the first floor of a colonial house, you enter a sober and cosy setting, with two small and warm rooms. The whole thing is very Frenchy with a smiling team dressed in rigorous clothing. Valérie is Franco-Colombian, and after many years in Paris, she decided to return to her roots to open this bistro in 2015, the idea being to discover and share a good traditional French cuisine, generous and without fuss. Her recipe: good mood, homemade and love! Salmon tartar, country terrine and pickles, ratatouille, stuffed pepper, shrimp risotto and the indestructible duck breast in carrot and orange sauce. But to vary the pleasures, there are also more exotic local flavours, such as the traditional crema de ahuyama (pumpkin soup) or shrimp in coconut sauce. For dessert, the lemon pie, and the chocolate softness and mango sauce are divine. Take your Colombian friends with you and they will love it, and for the French and Francophiles it is a real discovery on the edge of the Caribbean.
