The food and ambience was excellent. The food and drink supplied was excellent. The waiters and opera singers were exceptional and made the evening very special. It completed my wonderful visit to Madrid showing the people at La Castafiore and Madrid inhabitants to be friendly and generous. I would say this trip is a big must see when visiting Madrid. It's a real treat! thank you for the memorable experience.
It was a totally enjoyable experience, even for an individual who isn't that knowlegdable about opera. The dinner was good and the staff plesant and made the night an evening to remember.
