De Madrid al Cielo

De Madrid al Cielo (From Madrid to the Sky) is the official slogan for the Spanish capital. We literally lived by those words when we had dinner at the top of one of the four skyscrapers known as Cuatro Torres.

Cuatro Torres Business Area, is a business district located in Paseo de la Castellana in Madrid. The area contains the tallest skyscrapers in Spain which were finished in 2008. Three of them are the headquarters of some of Spain's most important companies. The other one houses the five-star hotel Eurostars Madrid Tower, which occupies 60% of the tower, with rooms between floors 6 and 27 and at its upper part, a two-storey dining room offering a panoramic view of the city. That's where the restaurant Volvoreta is located.

Volvoreta, is a scenic restaurant where you can savor the top Mediterranean cuisine with signature touches as you enjoy spectacular views of Madrid. 

Located on the 30th floor, since it opened it has become a gourmet benchmark in Madrid. Its name, which means ‘butterfly’ in Galician, pays tribute to the red butterflies that flutter over the ceiling of the restaurant (see first pic).

My boyfriend and I had made a reservation for a Saturday date night. We had talked about giving ourselves a treat for a long time and we decided to take the plunge. We were not disappointed! The staff was extremely kind and the food was scrumptious.

The first thing that strikes you is the decor. Black and white predominate with a touch of red provided by the butterflies I mentioned before. We were seated in a secluded area which gave us the privacy we were looking for. Fortunately, our table was by the window so that we could enjoy the view.

Now let's talk about the food. Shall we?
I started with parpadelle (a type of pasta) with veggies and soy.

Then I had lamb with pesto, almonds and shallots.

Meanwhile my beau opted for veal sirloin.

Even though we were quite full by the time we finished, we both have a sweet tooth so we couldn't skip desert!
Mine was chocolate rocks with coconut ice-cream.

 He chose cheesecake, toffee and mango ice-cream

All in all we had a very special night that we'll never forget. Everything turned out to be perfect. Now, when we walk or drive around the towers we can't help but remember this memorable occasion.
