Orio restaurant on Calle Fuencarral in Madrid specialises in Basque cuisine with both “pintxos” and an a la carte on offer.
As usual in many establishments of this type in the north of Spain, and especially in the Sagardi group’s restaurants, the layout of the place begins with an impressive bar full of “pintxos” perfect for an informal meal local style.
Guests can opt for the dining room and a la carte, with more elaborate dishes on the Orio menu such as raw milk croquettes, hake in green garlic sauce or oxtail in a wine sauce. Classic desserts such as milk curd or sweets from Tolosa will round off a heavenly meal.
Located in one of the busiest and most commercial streets of Madrid, Orio in Fuencarral allows a pause during a day of shopping, or a nearby getaway for those who are visiting the centre of Madrid, from Chueca to Callao.
