Baby Beef Rubaiyat
Baby Beef Rubaiyat is Madrid’s heaven for carnivores. Firmly established as one of Madrid’s finest steak houses, all the meat at this Brazilian favourite is free-range and imported directly from the Rubiyat cattle ranch in Brazil.
Hand grilled over charcoal in the traditional Brazilian method, a steak here will take your breath away and melt like velvet in your mouth.
Although steaks have made this restaurant famous, the menu doesn’t begin and end just with big hunks of meat – freshly grilled fish and Brazilian bean salads will round out a perfect evening.

Located in the northeast of the Madrid city centre, Vila Brazil is a popular and charming Brazilian restaurant, specializing, of course, in fine grilled meats, but also offering other surprising options, such as a completely vegetarian menu.
Specialties include farofa (kind of toasted cornbread), and plenty of rice and bean dishes. Check out their set menus, which offer great value, and they have a fantastic “menú del diá” – a complete lunch menu for €10.95.

Gastromaquia is not a typical Brazilian restaurant, but it makes this list because of its innovative blending of Spanish and Brazilians cuisines. Essentially a tapas bar, renowned chef Ivan Sánchez aims to present Brazilian inspired morsels in Spanish tapas form.
Try Brazilian classics such as pastel – thin pastry pockets filled with ground meats, cream cheese or shrimps, and lightly fried. Or for the more adventurous, try the tapas of braised octopus with potato foam.
Location: Calle Pelayo, 8 (in the neighbourhood of Chueca)
