A delightful and authentic Spanish dining experience is the perfect way to kick off a wedding celebration. Taberna del Alabardero is a traditional Spanish restaurant with an elegant, royal ambience, perfect for a dressy night out. Chefs Carlos Gómez and César Mayorga serve up classic Spanish gastronomy, featuring a seasonal menu and local products. You and your guests can enjoy plates of tapas, like Gazpacho Andaluz (cold tomato soup); Tortilla de Patatas (potato omelets); and Salpicon de Marisco (seafood salad). The restaurant also offers hearty paella, from Arroz Negro (with squid ink and baby squid) to Paella de Langosta (with lobster, shrimp, mussels, and clams). You will want to save room for dessert, too, and top off the meal with some caramelized custard cream; Idiazabal cheese flan; or rice pudding, among the options. It will be a memorable meal with great company.
