Escuela de Hostelería y Turismo de Madrid

Madrid, Spain

This historic culinary school offers its students the opportunity to enter into direct contact with the work world through its restaurant while they are training. At the same time, diners may sample any of their creations along with one of the wines from the school’s cellar. There is also a VIP area if clients are looking for some privacy.
