en Copa de Balon by Heather Taylor

I love going into downtown Madrid, but every once in awhile my husband and I prefer to have a quiet night close to home.  Unlike Madrid, the restaurants start to fill up earlier and close a lot sooner.  Luckily there are numerous restaurants and a few with nice outside dining too!

We recently tried En Copa de Balon (http://aravaca.encopadebalon.com), which actually has a few locations. We visited the one in Aravaca located at Av. de Valdemarín, 165, 28023 Madrid.

At lunch time you can walk off the street and normally find a table – although when the weather is nice the patio does fill up quickly.  At night I highly recommend making a reservation.  The tables are usually packed and even finding a place at the bar can be difficult.  As the night goes on the music gets turned up and the atmosphere is lively.

The menu has a variety of delicious appetizers and meals to choose from to satisfy your cravings.  I personally think very highly of their sushi and their hamburger – two very different meals but both equally appetizing.  Their wine menu is quite extensive and their cocktails  are not to be missed.  Enjoy!!
