Big meat!!

Simple, pretty nice meat! Solomito was nice! The house is traditional and familiar! Wine list is short, so, dont expect top eines. But they have a fair one! Price around €140 per couple!

I found this restaurant when the founder was running it. It was run later by his wife and now the next generations are operating it. The solomillio, by the gram, is great fund. Don't miss a spanish omlette either.

My friends and I decided to have a lunch there because we heard it was a special place in Madrid to have lunch. While we were waiting for the table, I noticed lots of garbage on the floor. I know it'a typical spanish bar with a custom of throwing things on the floor, but when you see food leftovers on... More

You know what you are getting here when you order a beef steak - you pay by the weight. The pimientos de padron to start with were fine, the chorizo bravo not as spicy as hoped for, the baby lamb cutlets had been deep fried. What a terrible thing to do to such a delicate cut of meat and, with... More

This is Madrid's version of a steakhouse. Not the ceremony American are used to, but the best beef in town. Presentation is simple - a piece of sizzling steak on an equally hot plate. Ambience is simple, too, but after a mostly Mediterranean diet during a trip to Spain, this is where to go for a red meat fix.

We had hoped for a nice experience after the Fodor's recommendation. Like one of the past reviewers wrote, the place is with no atmosphere and the food is absolutely not worth the money. For the price, there are much better places in Madrid. We had traditional fare such as tripes and steak and both were just ok. The whole time... More

Delicious Spanish omelet and one of the friendliest bartenders in Madrid! Make sure you sample a few different tapas and chat with the bar keep.

I had hoped for a nice experience after reading some of the reviews here on trip advisor but boy I got disappointed! The place is with no atmosphere, the food is absolutely not worth the money all though the steaks we had was ok. The money we spend here could easily have been used on a much better restaurant.

I ate my first steak at Casa Paco in 1967. My spanish friends who took me there still go at least twice a year. The old man Don Paco) is no longer there and things look a little worn. The waiters can be a bit testy but they warm up quickly if you smile and ask for their suggestions. The... More

Old, traditional and Rustic Castilian "tavern". Serving the best of Madrid's local meat (ox) steaks since the 1950's, Casa Paco is the place to go if you are a steak lover. There is a traditional bar with drinks and tapas but if you dine, try and get a table upstairs especially if you want a more intimate setting. Disregard the... 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.
