Sunday Funday was upon us and we were ready to see more of our city’s fantastic views and taste some more of their finest cuisine! Madrid is known for their terraces and rooftop terraces, so we thought there would be no better way to spend our Sunday rooftop style.We began our search for a terrace thinking maybe there were a few we could try out in Madrid, right?! Much to our surprise during our search we found that there are over 200 terraces in Madrid. I have linked some really great articles and links to find your way through these terraces. We were ecstatic and hungry so we hit the ground running in trying to pick just one we were going to try out. We contacted one of our fellow foodie friends, and asked her if she would like to join us for this experience. She was more than pleased to accept our offer. We made reservations online for 3:00pm, so we decided to go a little early to see what all the talk was about these rooftop terraces.
When we walked out onto this unbelievable rooftop it felt as if we were in a movie. The atmosphere was hip, trendy, and modern club style. People lounging under a canopy with a drink in their hand, as the mist cooled them off from the sun beating down on them. After a long first week of classes for Trey and Kathryn, and my first week of work, this was exactly what the doctor ordered. As we lounged in the shade I felt weightless. It was as if all of my worries had been lifted away. I think the beverages we were sipping on might have had something to do with that too, but more or less it was this place! Trey had Gin and Tonic, Kathryn had a cerveza, and I enjoyed a piña colda!
We decided that afternoon that we were going to create a challenge. "The Madrid Terrance and Rooftop Challenge!" Trey, some fellow foodies and I will be traveling Madrid and rating our experience! Feel free to make any recommendations or join in the fun with our Challenge. Just message us and we are there! We thought if Madrid had some much to offer when it came to fun, places like this, we could help with the local economy for sure.
Therefore, Tartanroof is our very first review! Tartan will be difficult to beat, with this being our first experience here in Madrid. Not to mention, the incredible views, the refreshing cocktails, the misting lounge areas, and the supreme cuisine. The food was incredible, from the beet puree served with pita, which was a refreshing starter they served before we received 1st course. To the local fresh vegetables, and the spicy spin on the tomato sauce with the crab. We simply cannot say enough about this succulent comida. The scallops were cooked to perfection and I cannot forget to talk about the desert. It was similar to a molten lava cake, but severed in a cup with fresh made cream and caramel drizzle. Normally we do not get desert, but this was worth the calories and the cup was scraped down to the very last mortal. This meal left our bellies full and months watering!We give Tartan five stars and two thumbs up! We are looking forward to our next stop we will keep you posted as we explore the foodie paradise of the terrances in Madrid, Spain.
