Found this great restaurant for Sunday brunch in Madrid to satisfy our cravings for eggs and pancakes. Only a set menu brunch offered on a Sunday, but good choice of options and really nice touches in the menu. Staff were lovely too. Highly recommend

Poor service, poor food selection, mediocre quality, noisy and personnel not kind. We tried a "risotto with lobster" that was tasteless and overcooked, and also tapas offered as appetisers were poor. We asked for three different bottles of wine and they were all sold so we have been forced to buy the only remaining white wine (the cheapest and honestly... More

Visited Café Oliver for Brunch on Sunday – I was impressed with the pastries and fresh bread – delicious! Fresh juice and coffee were also good! You then get a choice of eggs; you can have them scrambled, fried or eggs Benedict! Now, I don´t like eggs you see, the waiter said I could not have anything else – this... More

This restaurant is just off the Tourist Area but close to Chueca metro, and well worth the visit. Staff very friendly and very good food. My advice is that if you wish to enjoy an evening diner here, try it out by going first for a Menu del Dia. This will enable to sample the food,service and atmosphere at a... More

Recently visited Cafe Oliver. Superb truffle buratta, also really enjoyed the avocado and salmon tartar as well. The portions come quite large but the dishes are ideal for sharing between people. I would really recommend to anyone who is looking for a good meal in Madrid.

Best burger I've ever had! Only good salad in Spain! Great steak, duck and raw fish. Finest quality of food and service. All the food are original delicacies. A welcome relief of heavy overpriced Spanish menus!

Great, great restaurant with a fantastic atmosphere, good service and delicious food. Not expensive and comfortable. Try to get a table next to one of the street windows and experience the passers by! We went after a re-opening (apparently) and laughed our way through the (new) menu with the waitress - one example. "The things that rabbits eat" (demonstration of... More

You have to make sure you go there VERY hungry, because there is plenty of food to be served. It is fairly pricey, but worth doing it at least once. The queues at the place are quite annoying as it seems like its fairly popular and there is not much to do whilst you are waiting. Def go for the... More

Visited this cafe from a review on timeout.com and it was great. 25 euro for 3 course brunch as well as juice, tea, drinking yoghurt. Would definitely go again next time I'm in Madrid

This was perhaps one of the best restaurants we tried during our ten day trip to Madrid. Cafe Oliver does not offer outdoor seating, which seemed to be a major disadvantage in the first place--we prefer outdoor seating over the summer--but the food was exceptional! Actually, we were pleasantly surprised of the quality of food. Delicious french cuisine with a... More
