Calling all cheese lovers, I've got pretty exciting news for you! I've found a restaurant in Madrid that is cheese lovers' paradise.

The restaurant is huge and has different areas including a counter to grab a quick bite, semi-private areas, and long tables for big groups. White and nordic designs predominate. Very original decor that mirrors the different steps of cheese making welcomes you, like a vertical garden representing the meadows or a ceiling with lights that look like udders. Most tables are big to fit in fondues, raclettes and cheese platters and the chairs are really comfy.

The friendly staff will explain the menu and all the options available. They have a menu with pages and pages of different cheese from all around the world so you can make your own customized cheese platter. A fondue or a raclette is an excelent choice if you are with a group of friends. And don't worry if you or one of your companions is lactose intolerant or vegan, Poncelet offers dairy-free versions of most dishes.

Since it was just me and my hubby, we ordered a small cheese platter and two main dishes which were served with different types of delicious bread. A kind waiter brought a paper with the main characteristics of each cheese and explained the order in which we had to eat them. Next, we had a sald and cod. When I saw the waiter approaching with a cocktail shaker I almost told him that he was at the wrong table but turns out that my salad was in it. He shook it and poured it on my plate. It's actually a genuis idea to dress a salad perfectly!

The desserts are delicious and are made by my favorite macaron shop in Madrid: Moulin Chocolat. We ordered the New York cheesecake and the giant chocolate macaron.poncelet cheese bar madrid restaurante raclette fondue platter
