The restaurant’s origins as an inn and restaurant are linked to the town of Fuencarral (now the Fuencarral neighbourhood), where the original guesthouse catered for travellers on the road from France and new arrivals in Madrid. Fuencarral main source of income was farming, mainly agriculture and cattle. It was also a Royal hunting area and hosted the Royal Huntsmen. Although it was always owned by the Guiñales family, the inn was known by various names during different periods, and you can still find references to “Mesón Nuevo”, “Casa de la Silvestra” and “Casa de La Pascuala”.
The menu features specialities including homemade stews, rabbit with garlic sauce and lamb roasted in a wood-burning oven, all washed down with wines from their own cellar. The restaurant has served customers that include King Juan Carlos I and many well-known sports figures, artists and celebrities.
