An excellent restaurant. The staff were incredibly friendly even though we wanted to have dinner very early (for Spanish standards). The waiter recommended the octopus and it was an amazing culinary experience. He also suggested to order only half portions and had a very good point there since we were stuffed afterwards anyway. If you're in the neighborhood, check it... More

We had dinner at this restaurant based on the very nice reviews here but we were disappointed. While the service was definitely friendly and the place seemed to be buzzing with people, the food itself was not up to the standard (or up to the prices) with the exception of the anchovies. For the rest, everything was drowned in oil... More

We went here off the back of all the other reviews and it did live up to our expectations. I think the only thing to mention is that it is quite far out and it's more of a local neighbourhood restaurant. But the portions are massive so definitely order less than you think you'll need. Even a simple tomato salad... More

We spent a great evening with friends.We had no reservation and we decided to have dinner really late. Instead of the late hour the personal was friendly, the food was amazing and the wine recommendation agreed the plates we chose. Highly recommended!

They also have a great selection of Broken Eggs (Huevos Rotos), I recommend the huevos rotos con aceite de trufa y queso Idiazabal ( broken eggs with... 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

My parents, partner and I enjoyed a wonderful Saturday lunch here during our recent visit to Madrid from the UK. Picked the restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed. Great service and food reccomendations from the staff and an excellent atmosphere as we were surrounded by local families enjoying their Saturday lunch.

This restaurant is easy to find, with great interior. We were advised the dishes were big and easy to share however we decided to order two dishes and we should of listened as the portions are massive! I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Madrid, we thought it was going to be expensive but one of our cheapest meal... More
