Est. 1886

A wolf and a culinary genius

What is now known as Calle Echegaray used to be called Calle del Lobo (literally, “Wolf Street”). Here, in the 17 th century, a reclusive and rather unsociable taxidermist had his workshop; at the entrance he displayed a stuffed and ferocious-looking wolf he himself had killed, with which he terrified the children of the neighbourhood.

Casa Lobo will remain closed during July and August, to return in September with an excellent autumn proposal signed by Fernando Arellano and D ´Angelo Bishop.



According to local legend, a little boy meted out some blows to the wolf in front of his friends in order to demonstrate his courage and destroyed it; the enraged taxidermistcast the child aside with a single blow, inflicting fatal injuries, but the Blessed VirginMary miraculously intervened and saved his life. The taxidermist escaped imprisonmentand the boy’s life was saved, but the wolf was no more.

Casa Lobo

Casa Lobo offers a distinctive venue for arranging a get-together, with the essence of the open-plan kitchens found in the large mansions of the Barrio de las Letras, presidedover by the culinary genius of the Madrid chef Fernando Arellano. Casa Lobo is a traditional fixture on the Madrid dining scene, but with a dash of something extra.

The legend of the Calle del Lobo inspires this most redoubtable ofrestaurants, where contemporary Madrid-style cuisine is the order of the day.

The magic of the Barrio de las Letras, the flavour of authenticity... a veritable treasure trove oftraditional and seasonal food.
