This is a traditional old Madrid meal of garbanzos, chicken, beef, and sausage (a lot of food). We did not want a big meal so we ordered a small plate at the bar. This is a perfect way for two people to sample the dish and enjoy the the walls filled with bullfighting posters and souvenirs. You need to arrive... More

Hi all: I read all these wonderful remark on Cicido at Malacatin and decided to give it a try. First of all, they do have English menu and waiter was really friendly and tried his best with English. However, we are family of 3 females, and my mother was not feeling well, so we didn't want to order too much... More

I don't think my wife and I have ever had as much food as we had on our table when we ordered the Cocido! It was wonderful trying all the different meats, although it was a struggle chewing through some of it at times. The broth from the stew was just heavenly. They also have one of the best wine...

then this is your place. Go for the cocido, which is excellent, and almost an obscene amount of food. But the price is right, and the ambiance is unbeatable. Highly recommended.

In this cosy restaurant they serve probably the best cocido of Madrid. There are only few tables and you need to reserve.

One of the century old restaurants of Madrid : it doesn´t only look great, the food - and especially the cocido - is equally worthwile. It can even be taken at night (Thursday-friday). The place is small, so a previous reservation is useful.

Went to this lovely authentic Spanish restaurant after reading reviews. Decor is wonderful, old and celebrates the history of the restaurant from 1890. Tables are large and set for 2. This gives a clue to portion sizes !! We ordered the Special and were not disappointed. Soup was lovely but you are not expected to eat it all as the... More
