Laydown restaurant Madrid
The Laydown restaurant in Madrid is a very unique restaurant with a simple concept,
you dine lying down!
Thats right in this Madrid restaurant one reserves a "couple of beds" rather than a "table for two". The philosophy of the Laydown restaurant being that of providing an oasis within the concrete and asphalt jungle!
However perhaps the best news for the visitor to Madrid is the fact that all reservations can be done online and in English
via the restaurants website!
The formal atmosphere of a sit down restaurant isn't for everyone and Laydown chose to investigate a way of
making dining comfortable and fun. The result was a bed system for guests with live music and shows to complete the
sense of total relaxation and complete removal from the stress of normal city life.
Since opening its doors in 2006 the Laydown restaurant has become a fixture with the trendy, chic and adventerous amongst Madrids populace and is only now starting to be discovered by visitors to the city. No doubt in no small part to this Madrid guide!
With all this talk of the "lying down and eating" concept one shouldn't forget that a restaurant only survives in Madrid if its
food is of the highest order and the meals at Laydown have been consumed in copious quantities with more than 1200 meals being served each month. Of course, don't take our word for it, try the house speciality Risotto and discover for yourself why the Laydown has developed a dedicated following!
