Urban Burgers in Madrid

Naif is one of those cool, trendy types. It sits on the corner of a small plaza, looking fashionable and hip without even trying. On a Sunday locals sit out on the terrace, using every single table. They chatter away with friends, picking tortilla chips up without even glancing at the plate. They don’t need to see what they’re eating because they know it’s good food at Naif.

You notice all of that within the space of a minute or two of standing outside the restaurant. It’s enough to send you through the small doorway into the indoor section to attempt to bag a table. Huge murals and maps, and rustic crates cover the walls. Lights hang low and exposed vents give it a cool urban, warehouse feel. It almost looks unfinished, but somehow it works. The cute winged burger motif on the menus pulls the whole laidback, fun vibe together.

The waiters are as you’d expect – edgy and stylish, without really trying. They’re typically Spanish, tall, dark and nice on the eye. They rush in and out, whafting smells of delicious dishes in every direction, trying to keep up with the hungry customers’ orders. It’s not a particularly touristy spot, so their English is limited, but you’ll be able to get by.

The Food

The folded menu bursts with exciting options, including an amazing section of veggie options.  Despite the menu being in Spanish they’re clearly labelled (with a cute bit of cauliflower, or maybe broccoli – either way it’s cute). It’s a fun (and rare) dilemma to be in – mozzarella sandwich or vegetarian burger? Caesar salad or quesadillas? And, so on. Ah, the luxury of a choice. Well done, Naif.

Once you’ve placed your order, enjoy the complimentary freshly baked tortilla chips. Served with a pot of tuna mayo, it’s a little odd, but a refreshing change to a pot of salsa. The burgers are cooked to perfection and topped generously with salads, cheeses and sauces. In-keeping with the restaurant the buns are cute too. They’re glazed and sprinkled with seeds.

The vegetarian burger is surprisingly good for the cheap price. In fact, all of the dishes are extremely good value – just twenty Euros for two mains, two drinks and dessert with two spoons. The veggie burger is a falafel combination, covered with chipotle mayonnaise. Served with a small dish of crisps, it’s also surprisingly filling. It really hits the spot, as does the Tex-Mex burger (or so the Mr tells me).

Desserts include tortes, cheesecakes, and even key lime pie. The most noticeable is the wedge layered with Nutella though. It’d be criminal not to sample a bit, so find your partner in crime and give it a go. You know you want to…

  • The buns on these burgers look amazing. If I’m ever back in Madrid, I’ll have to find this place! Although I do feel a bit guilty as an American eating burgers abroad!

    Yeah, the buns made them different to the usual plain ones. I know what you mean, but this place is worth the guilt!
