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.

Four of us went down to this restaurant based on the reviews. FIRST we asked about several higher end wines which they didn't have. SECONDLYwe got bread and dip which was 6 euro. 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

If you want steak that is hot on the plate, this is the place to go to. Arrive around 830pm for a glass of wine in the bar before the restaurant opens and let them know you want to dine also. The steaks are thick and seared on the outside, served on an extremely hot platter and are still cooking.... More

zero ambiance, pretty bad service, other things on the menu are at best average BUT the steak is perfect. As good as any, anywhere at any time.

I cannot speak to the other food or dining room but had a great Spanish omelette and a nice glass of wine at the bar. I am still thinking of that omelette and may have to stop one more time before we leave Madrid. It's a fun place for a drink!

Well, well, I got the info from a colleague and following a short check on trip advisor, we decided to go there after a heavy working day! From some reviews, the place looks like as this is almost the best place in Madrid for having a steak. One of us got the famous steak. It was served in a hot... More

excellent experience, eating a big filet mignon, finishing to cook in your dish [that's why the expression 'el plato quema'] , since the dish come too hot ... after lunch or dinner, visit Plaza Mayor, and observe this curiosity: it is not square ...
