Had dinner here four years ago with a group of business guests from all of Europe. The thing is - I talk to all of these people today and they are STILL talking about the meal at Capitan Alatriste. The ribs were absolutely epic (forgot the name of the dish in Spanish, but please see my pic). Just epic. On... More

We went to Taberna del Capitan Alatriste on the recommendation of a friend. She's a native Spaniard living in Madrid, so we trusted her not to lead us astray. I'm so glad we followed her advice! The restaurant is located in the La Latina neighborhood near Calle Cava Baja. Calle Cava Baja is well known for it's abundance of restaurants... More

Great location and interior. Service was ok, could work a bit on their english and attitude, but they fit the profile of the Spanish hosts. Food was great, upper range. Price as well. Wine selection was decent. I would definitely reccomend this place

I went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the concierge of our hotel in Madrid. Great location, but the food was poor, overpriced, and as a tourist I felt like I was being targeted to ripped off. I didn't ask for table bread and they tried to charge me 14 euros on the bill for it. I would never... More

This place is a tourist trap. I was with a group of four experienced travellers, picked a wine, not available, picked another, not available but another at twice the price was recommended (120 euro). Dinner was average. Dining in Madrid is excellent. There is no need to waste an evening or your money at Capitan Alatriste.

We enjoyed a great lunch here and would recommend the suckling pig speciality which was moist inside and crisp on the outside. Excellent friendly service too, nothing was too much trouble. Not cheap, but pretty good value.

We were two couples who shared quite a large but utterly delicious meal of octopus, squid, garlic soup,lamb, blood sausage, bull tail and roast suckling pig. The service was highly professional and friendly and you can tell that they take a great deal of pride in their food, wine and overall establishment. For a change of pace, it was nice... More

We had a night in Madrid while staying near the airport. One of the desk staff recommended we stroll around the area centered on Plaza San Andres for dinner. We wanted tapas but we don't eat pork or ham, and many of the places along Calle Don Pedro and the Calle Cava Baja were bursting with people. We came across... More
