We booked this place in advance as we were impressed with the reviews. The restaurant at the back was busy, mostly with groups of tourists. The service on arrival was a little brusque, but it was efficient. We placed the order and the waiter did warn me against my selection of pig's trotter but I chose it anyway. For starters... More

Enjoy just entering the place. The bar is often crowded but waiters are friendly and helpful if you would like to eat there. There is a comedor in the back. Start in the bar with a vermouth del grifo and wait for your table. The food is a bit pricy but very good and presented nicely. This is really very... More

Let me start by saying this restaurant serves beautiful (chef creation and gorgeous presentation) and delicious tapas!!! You don't get regular tapas here, every single tapas dish has its own wow factor. House wine (red) by the glass was also exceptional to me. Had a perfect dinner with my friends. Every single one was raving about the food. If I... More

We had drinks here but the menu looked good. Great atmosphere!! The food we saw served looked very appetizing and if we hadn't been full, we'd have indulged in the ravioli!!

We went for vermouth and tapas and we enjoyed every minute of it: we felt part of the madrid scene. It was too busy for the waiters to be friendly but we finally managed to get a smile...

We visited Alberto's with Joanna of Insiders Madrid and she chose a selection of tapas including oxtail meat deep fried in a bell pepper, anchovies in oil and lemon juice and small pastry parcels with bonito (tuna) and cod fillet in batter. Washed down with white wine and vermouth. Fabulous location, well worth the visit.

The food and service here is good. In particular, their oxtail stew. The service is fine. But one should really come for is to experience a history of Madrid. That is, the restaurant walls are adorned with photos and memoriblia of Cervantes who is the author of Don Quixote. Don't leave Madrid without leaving this place!

Did you know that Cervantes lived in the same building where it is Casa Alberto? In it, he was inspired to write "Journey to Parnassus". Our restaurant was founded in 1827, and it is part of the history of Madrid. Hope to see you again in Casa Alberto. More
