Opposite the Senate building in Madrid, is the legendary restaurant Caripen, previously was the flamenco show of Lola Flores. It is the favorite restaurant for a long list of celebrities. We hold the honor of serving the best duck breast citywide.
We excel in our selection of foie gras, both mi-cuit and cold, or cool and stir, plus rock mussels are usually the favorites when choosing an entree to share.
Dark, night owl, funny, underground, seventies, scoundrel… all these adjectives describe this myth of the nightlife. The old flamenco show of Lola Flores and El Pescaílla, was recovered in 93 by the owner of L’Obrador, Daniel boute, who along with his wife Françoise, have managed to turn the restaurant into a meeting point where you can dine late of the night.
Caripen means “good vibes” in the gypsy slang, name that we proudly carry since Lola Flores named it. Sympathy and pleasant atmosphere define us. Caripen is a meeting point for people looking for the best, in an informal and nocturnal environment.
However, the best thing of Caripen without a doubt is our exquisite menu that combines Italian and French cuisine. If you prefer to dine late, this is your place. Because Caripen has no lunch: only dinner. A whimsical and bohemian schedule that says a lot of the free and cosmopolitan spirit that sorround Caripen. Favourite place to go for many spanish celebrities… you may see them if you are lucky!
