By far the best steak I've had in years. Steak is cooked rare and the thousand degree hot plate it comes on is what you use to cook it just the way you like it. Slice the steak and then place it on the sizzling plate and enjoy it just the way you want to. absolutely fab. A must try... More

I rated it average because the steak we ordered was good. The setting is nice and homely. But: The service is really, really poor. We ordered one steak well done, they came both bloody. Then the waiter tried to explain, that we had to cook the meat on the sizzling hot plate. That might do for a medium. He retured... More

The steaks were delicious, but in the menu is mentioned only portion of 1kg!When we asked for fewer the waiters told us reluctantly that the minimal weight is 400g.So it will be honest to the costumers to write it in the menu!The behaviour of the waiters was on the brink of the rudeness, so I don't feel that this restaurant...

We had a very unpleasant experience at Casa Paco during our lunch on December 30. The restaurant was recommended by a friend and we wanted to give it a try. As soon as we arrived, we were introduced to the 1st floor. We were given a table close to the stairs and the kitchen. We asked if we could change... More

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

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
