We are spending our last night in Spain in Madrid. We would like to have a great meal. I was thinking DiverXo or La Terraza del Casino. Can anyone help me decide between the two. I am also open to suggestions on other possibilities. Thanks

    We were at Diverxo and was not impressed.

    The dining room was dark, way too serious found the diners a bit pretentious for my taste. The food was good as was the service. For Asian food I rather go to Sudestana.

    For a great meal out of the two the Terraza del Casino can't be beat if you're dining on the terrace. No menu but they do ask for food allergies and they gladly substitute. The food is very good as is the service, excellent sommalier. Reservations a must. Jacket required.

    Have fun.

        You found the diners pretentious at DiverXo but not at a place that requires a jacket to dine there?

          Wearing a jacket is pretentious?

          Who knew?

          Regarding Diverxo - Service? Good. Food? Good.

          Diners? Pretentious.

          My opinion.

          The end.
