REVIEW

Bokado

Bokado’s primary attraction is its location at the scenic Museo del Traje, Madrid’s costume and fashion museum, with a beautiful outdoor terrace that is one of the most wonderful spots to dine in Madrid.  There is lush landscaping along with fountains and dramatic lighting.  

Brothers Mikel and Jesús Santamaría, who founded the restaurant, were largely responsible for crystallizing the concept of pintxos (Basque tapas made with slices of French bread and exotic toppings) in their various outposts in Guipúzcoa, Bilbao, Biarritz and La Rioja.  Bokado continues that tradition by serving pintxos in the adoining café as well as more substantive fare.   There are piquillo peppers from Cristal, chistorra (spicy sausage) from Sacana, lamb in aubergine packets, Navaz pigeon roasted on a bed of leek – even roe deer.  

In our view, Bokado is among the finest restaurants in Madrid, combining a sophisticated and idyllic setting with accomplished gourmet food. Lamentably, the government has shut the museum down in order to relocate to a new location
