Wonderful place to eat

We had half-portions of the grilled octopus tentacles, baby monkfish and mixed wild mushrooms. Beautiful food and wonderful service, with someone always checking to make sure we were happy. The portions are enormous and are for sharing. Really enjoyed this, and plan to go back.

This restaurant was suggested to us (and booked) by a friend of us that lives in Madrid. We were a party of 5 and we had a great time! Excellent food, great wine, great suggestions by the server, who were very friendly and good fun to talk to. I was so happy with this place that I went back with... More

Very nice place where you can have a cervecita or a glass of wine with good tapas (not the simple touristic types), but where you can also dine in a relaxed and warm atmosphere. Good food + nice service, what are you asking more?

We dined at Alcaravea in 2012 (they really remembered us!!) and we experienced Spain's best meal - "Secreto Pork! And again, 2 years later, nothing changed - it was succulent, and like no other pork we've ever eaten! The service is very personal, pleasant and all dishes explained in detail and now they thankfully have "half-orders" so you can enjoy... More

The restaurant has a nice interior, but the service level was not impressing. Rude staff that was currently bumping into you everytime they passed. The food was average at best and i didnt even finish the second dish. Its a very noisy restaurant, so not the place to go if you are looking for a quiet place to eat.

Not really my type of food but I was blown away by this restaurant and wish hadn't booked elsewhere for the remainder of our trip as otherwise could have eaten here everyday. The service was exceptional, we were lucky enough to be served by César the owner I think. His English is excellent and he explained the various dishes (suggesting... More

This restaurant was so good on the first visit we went three times for dinner. Ok it was close to our apartment...but I think it is worth hopping on the Metro and finding it. Caesar the owner/manager took care of us carefully explaining what was fresh, and ensured each visit gave us new tastes in both food and drink. We... More

We came on our first night by just taking a chance on your restaurant. We got very lucky when we dropped in Alcaravea. Cesar seated us immediately and brought over appetizers and took our drink orders. Then he came back and explained in English, because we don't understand Spanish, all of the specials of today. Cesar recommended we share plates.... More

Love love love this place! The food, the wine, the olive oil, the himalaya salt! They care every detail, every ingredient. The atmosphere is great also. There are several in the city but this is the one I like most. Ask for the carrillada de ternera, just amazing!
