I visited this place a few days ago and I was very surprised by the quality of the food, great tapas menu with a great offering of typical Spanish Tapas, everything I ordered tasted very good, and the prices and amount of food was very descent. I also loved the decor, this is a big restaurant but once you step... More

Random weekend in Leipzig and Cafe Madrid was on the to-do list. Although we tried to make reservations (twice) the response was they were full. We showed up and were able to get a seat. The food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was loud but good! The restaurant is beautiful... The Bad: Service!!! It took 50 mins to get... More

Nice break from German food but the tapas are average and pretty bland. We had bacon wrapped dates, chorizo in red wine sauce, pork in manchego cheese sauce, sautéed peppers, chicken in garlic sauce, spinach with feta cheese and meatballs. It was all ok but I don't know that I'd order any of it again, nothing stood out. The service... More

We tasted several tapas but unfortunately they did not taste like in Spain..actually I felt a little bit it was Saxonian tapas not Spanish. Rather german tastes, than Spanish. At least for my opinion. Was also expensive considering the quality!!

We've had excellent and plentiful "after party" brunch at Cafe Madrid, but have also enjoyed tapas selections with our friends and visitors at evenings. Spacious and nice interior, but has also quiet garden. Good choice when you want to have nice time with more people.

We arrive and are greeted by a rude waiter who tells us to move our luggage in a very rude way, part of it wasn't even ours. It was extremely racist and condescending. We decided to leave, perhaps the food was good, but we wouldn't know.
