Fantastic OX, no bull.

My expectations were high for Casa Paco as it was billed by my brother as his favourite restaurant of all time. It really didn't disappoint. The first small annoyance though was the fact you cannot make any reservations ahead of the day. I was flying in from Cape Town, and my brother from London... read more

The restaurant is very old, and full of tradition. They serve ox meat, and what a meal it was. The staff is amazing, the ambiance is old and mystical, full of old Spanish glories from the bull arenas and Spanish singers and actresses. The "Solomillo" was amazing, and so so tasteful, that I loved it. It can get a little... More

Our guidebook said that Casa Paco was a real find. I wish we hadn't! The veal milanese was nondescript. The steak was good. The steak came with nothing on the side--just a hunk of meat on a plate. However, the staff comes with an attitude that made the experience unpleasant. The wait staff was surly and not responsive. But at... More

Second generation family owned restaurant, have been eating here for almost 20 years and still today, the only thing that change its that now they offer café with your dessert. Same wonderful staff, the owner and her family, still working hard, running all those stairs to deliver great Castilian food. Had the croquetas for the first time and I don't... More

We had dinner in Casa Paco with our daughter when she was 10 and was impressed with the pictures of all the movie stars. We went back with her now at 25. What a disappointment!. We had to send back food because it was badly re-heated with cold areas. There was nothing left of the simple delicious taste we remembered.... More

Quite simply the most magnificent meat on the planet. You cook each individual bite on a hot plate at a million degrees....yummy!

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...

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.
