We have been to Madrid before in May and we enjoyed dining late (after 10.00pm), going to bed even later and having an afternoon nap in the heat. Next time we are going in late November. Do people still eat as late? If I book restaurants at 9.00 pm or earlier, are we dining alone?
One other specific query - last time we enjoyed post midnight coffee at Cafe de Oriente on the big square overlooking the Palacio Real, with the power of the patio heater, is this likely to be possible there in November, or perhaps you can recommend your favourite outdoor spot for a nightcap
