My friend & I popped in here one evening last week whilst on a 3 day trip to Madrid. What was great for us was the 1/2 size tapas portions you could eat in the bar. Great for us so we could try more things! Definitely recommend.

Busy bar serving some of the best tapas. We love the pork fillet with goats cheese and onions. It does get very busy so finding space can be a problem, but the staff are friendly and remembered us when we returned for a quick bite the next night.

The Orixe was a disappointing experience: a clearly popular restaurant that promised fresh Galician cuisine. That is a novelty to us, so thought to give it a try. We asked for a table - our first mistake. The main, open area of the restaurant was full so after a bit of a wait they found us a corner spot in... More

Outstanding tapas, many outside of the norm. Very friendly and attentive staff holds it together in the midst of the surging crowd.

After several days in Madrid we were looking for some lighter food and vegetables. Orixe fit the bill perfectly. Excellent offs Catalan style. From the wine steamed fresh choizo to the roasted vegetable and wonderful gazpacho the food was a treat. Wonderful attentive service and great atmosphere.

We started the evening here and weren't disappointed. The food was great and really good quality, and, although there was a cover charge, it was worth it for a great taster gazpacho and freshly baked bread!! The only one downside was that the service was a little abrupt and the sit down meals were a little more expensive than other... More

I found this restaurant rather by coincidence on 2011 when walking along "Cava Baja" and stopping on every Taperia. I liked the decoration and the general atmosphere of the place but it was really the food and the service what impressed me. A great selection of the best tapas and a menu full of succulent "Raciones" followed by an ice... More
