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!

We decided to travel away from the centre and were very glad we did! It was the night of the Champions League final between the two Madrid giants so the restaurant was perhaps quieter than normal but we still had an excellent visit. As previous reviews we were greeted very warmly and the waitress patiently explained the specials in English... More

I have to echo many of the positive comments about this super restaurant which is located not in the centre of Madrid, but is accessible by metro. From the moment we arrived we were made most welcome by the friendly staff, and all spoke good to excellent English. Our waitress guided us through the menu and the specials and patiently... More

The food is incredibly good. Has large portions so share, even the wait staff will tell you to share. Ask about the special and go with it! Beef cheek stew was wonderful. Burrata tomato salad melt in your mouth good. The service was fantastic and they do whatever they can to help make your dinner experience one you will remember.... More

Alcaravea offers a complete dining experience. With well-priced lunch menus offering a range of locally sourced, quality dishes and a variety of evening dishes catering for all tastes, this is a must visit restaurant. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and if you're lucky you might be served by César, the front of house who has more flare and passion... More

I speak for both Alcaravea and the sister restaurant Alcaravea Gaztambide in this review, having visited both on numerous occasions during my 6 months in Madrid. I only have great things to say about this place... not ONE negative comment to make I stumbled upon this restaurant thanks to TripAdvisor as it happens. At the time it was in the... More

Great food and service! Huge menu so we got some help from our waiter to decide what to order. Owner also came around and said hi and talked to every table. Portions are large! Wish they were a bit smaller so we could have tried more items since everything looked delicious. We ordered tomato and burrata salad, artichokes, octopus with... More

On arrival it was busy and they took a while to acknowledge me. I had an excellent beer and the food was very good, however the mushrooms would have been much beter with butter instead of oil. The biggest downfall us that when they remove your first pkate they leave your dirty cutlery, unforgiveable for a real restaurant. Attention was... More
