If you’re a sucker for great, understated design, then you should love this place, hidden from view in the heart of Chueca. Located in the inner courtyard of COAM, Madrid’s association of architects, the restaurant has been designed by Sandra Tarruella Interioristas to please the masters of the trade with attention to detail rather than wow the public.

Foodwise, it’s best described as Italian – full of pastas, pizzas and carpaccios – with influences from the wider Mediterranean region. It’s satisfactory without trying to push any envelopes – but in this kind of setting it doesn’t quite need to, either. You’ll come here to linger over lunch or a glass of wine, in solitude or with a friend, not to expand your culinary horizons.

It’s a gem of a space, a calming urban oasis. Chueca can be lots of fun with its constant flow of frantic shoppers, boisterous drinkers and cruising gay boys, but it can also become a little too much at times. At Bosco de Lobos you can take a breather without even leaving the neighborhood. Just note that service can be a little slow, so do advise them if you’re in a hurry.
