After a life dedicated to marketing, I decided to embark on a new project that brings together my two great passions: cooking and traveling. Lóleo is the perfect space where my guests enjoy the food as much as the conversation. We discuss experiences, points of view, directions, recipes, and we often practice languages—an experience that I enjoy as much as my guests do.

Lóleo
Madrid
Lóleo is a small eatery located at Pacífico Market, which provides us with the freshest raw materials. It's a hidden, lovely place—not open to the public—and only accessible with a reservation. Located close to the Paseo del Prado and the Retiro, it's in a central area that's well connected.
The address is Calle Valderribas 30, 2º floor. Please notice that the access is from the street, not from the market. At the doorbell it’s written Lóleo.

    This was such a fun evening! Made some fantastic Spanish dishes that are possible to recreate at home! Delicious wine was served throughout the evening and we learned a lot! The space is beautiful as well! Fabulous night!

    This is a great cooking experience with Lola, who has had a lot of cooking experience. we made tapas, paella and cod and enjoyed the food over wine and bread. Lola had great tips on making the perfect paella and I can’t wait to make it at home

    Couldn’t recommend this more! The dishes were simple but delicious, a good balance between learning something new and also bringing home recipes that you could use in your own kitchen. Lola was an amazing host with a lot of knowledge to share.

    I haven't been in many cooking classes in the past, but nevertheless this one far exceeded my expectations. Along with it being small, a couple kind, young ladies who attended as well, the pacing of each step and the three of us taking part, gave a great sense of participation. The recipes that were taught along with the why of each ingredient gave great insight into how it was all put together and in the long run, makes repeating the process seem easy, once I do. Lots of delicious wine, conversation, and pleasant conversation, the host is truly a master at cooking, as well as hosting. I'd happily attend again if I find myself in Madrid once more in the future.

    Our family learned how to make croquettes, Spanish omelette, and other tapas from Lola and had so much fun! The space is cozy and comfortable, and we loved the large kitchen counter space to prep and cook the food together. Lola was a great instructor and chef. She also gave us a suggestions on what to do in Madrid, which we appreciated. Definitely a wonderful activity to do with friends and family!
