Madrid: Cerveceria Cruz Blanca - Prado Restaurant

We enjoyed a very nice tapas supper at a restaurant called Cerveceria Cruz Blanca - Prado in Madrid. The restaurant has a bar/tapas area on the ground floor and a full restaurant in the cellar. The bar level is much more interesting! The restaurant seems to be a chain organized by a brewery called Cruz Blanca. The decor featured historic brewery photos and advertising placards.

We ordered beer and received two tapas each, both were mayonnaise-based and since I do not eat mayonnaise they brought us four more! The beer was very interesting, it tasted vaguely creamy ... a nice feeling in the mouth. We ordered several tapas from the menu - including the pork loin sandwich - and they were all good. We spent 14 Euros for several beers and a light supper. The brewery mascot seems to be a penguin, here's Christa standing next to the door.

The restaurant is located at Calle Prado 25, on the corner of Calle Santa Catalina between the Plaza Santa Ana and Plaza Las Cordes.
