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

Four of us visited Alcaravea on our last night in Madrid. After reading reviews and ratings in Trip Advisor, I expected a special meal, and we were not disappointed! With Cesar's help, we made some unusual 'sharing dish' choices, like zucchini flowers, and we loved all of them. The food was all extraordinarily good and the prices were very reasonable.... More

I highly recommend a visit to this restaurant. The menu is huge, and then there are daily specials. Everything we tasted was delicious, the portions are huge, so order half portions in order to try more plates. Service was extremely friendly and helpful and the prices are a steal. Honestly, what more do you need for a casual dinner in... More

We were a party of six and our last night in Madrid. But it was our BEST night in Madrid with the help of Cesar and his staff. The food was extraordinary and the prices were extremely reasonable. The grilled octopus is a must.

Because we had the best meal of our vacation, including not only Madrid, but Paris and Barcelona -- and we really didn’t have a bad meal anywhere. The experience was greatly enhanced by the attentive service of the owner/manager Cesar, who was friendly, knowledgeable and couldn't be more helpful in advising us on the menu's offerings. A restaurateur who truly... More
