Hands down, this is the best place for tortillas in Madrid. The tortillas are so perfectly cooked you find them melting in your mouth. The potato is solidly at the center, but so well excited you'd swear they weren' there. Try tortillas at other places then come here...you will be amazed how different and good they are here.

This was my second visit to Casa Paco. It is a lovely place and conveniently located near Plaza Mayor. The steak is excellent but quite expensive. The plates are extremely hot. If your steak is undercooked, no need to send it back. Just cut a piece and put it on the plate to finish the cooking (this NOT a joke).... More

We came here twice in our four days to have a beer with their exceptional tortilla de patatas. Expect hot, fresh, tasty tortilla and a completely great atmosphere.

Casa Paco is not far from Plaza Major. The restaurant is small and traditional. We were taken by a food connoisseur who lives in Madrid so he knows where to take visiting friends to a good restaurant. We had a huge filet which was tender, juisy, huge and perfectly cooked. It is served sizzling in special plates so the meat... More

Only a few steps away from the tourist trap that is Plaza Mayor, this simple restaurant is a world apart. Old fashioned with a short menu, they know why people have been coming here for years - first rate steak cooked to perfection, washed down with a palatable red wine from the short but decent list. Portion sizes are very... More

Steak is served sizzling hot and is as good as any steak I have had in US. Nothing is served with the steak. We had a garden salad and starters of gazpacho and ham with melon. Medium size steak was plenty. Our Waiter could not help with limited wine list. We ordered the house which was fine with the steak.

Good dip but bread was quite stale. Definately overpriced. THIRDLY order the garlic soup.Ok but didn't taste fresh. I guess it was on the stove all day... More

Went here with my young family family on a recommendation of an authentic traditional Spanish restaurant. Overall we were really disappointed and felt the whole place is just average, awful decor and lighting (not at all 'authentic' just pretentious old hat!), very unwelcoming to children (with no provision of high chairs or children's menus or children's portions) and resting on...

Casa Paco was recommended by our hotel and it did not disappoint. We were excited by the fact that Ernest Hemingway frequented the restaurant during his time in Madrid. It's located just off of Plaza Mayor and is a two-story restaurant that has three dining rooms. It is almost impossible to get in without reservations. The place is filled with... More
