Las Violetas

Las Violetas

This art nouveau landmark opened in 1884, the year Oscar Wilde got hitched. It isn’t hard to picture the great Irishman in here, admiring the stained glass windows, amusing the well-coiffed habituées, flirting surreptitiously with the white-jacketed waiters and nibbling on a crustless sandwich. Long queues can form on weekends.
