We had a slow-paced meal one afternoon in this well-regarded but not too busy place, right off the Plaza Mayor. Filled with old world ambiance, with floral patterned tablecloths and a high arched ceiling, you know you're "really in Spain." The wine list is varied and filled with local wines. The service was attentive and helpful; we settled on two... More

We arrived at this restaurant with no reservation but they were able to seat us. The table felt like it was in a corridor so lacked atmosphere, however the welcome was friendly. We ordered a half bottle of local wine while we looked at the menu and we were brought a pre-starter of bacalao on toast drizzled with honey, which... More

The set menu for €36 was not just a steal but a great meal. Very well presented meal, tasty and great value. The inclusion of wine at one bottle between 2 is brilliant! Service excellent and would eat there again and again and again....

This restaurant is at least as good as the reviews we read before visiting for lunch. The food was outstanding, the service was warm and friendly and we appreciated not being part of the usual tourist restaurant scene. We thoroughly recommend for any stay in beautiful Caceres.

We spent four days in Barcelona and another four days in Madrid dining at well regarded Michelin listed and starred restaurants. Our lunch at Madruelo was as memorable as any other meal in Spain. My wife had the classic tuna with roasted peppers with fresh tuna. I had octopus with pimento. The green salad came with an extensive array of... More

Let me start by saying that although I often eat out, this is the first restaurant review I have ever written. This was the best dining experience my wife and 2 kids (14 and 11) have had in a very long time.This restaurant deserves a very strong recommendation, it is incomprehensible to see it on the empty side when other...

It is in the old city of Caceres in a narrow street close to Plaza Mayor. A little difficult to find. We had to ask several people. The food is great and the service too. We are travelling in Spain and Portugal. This one of the best places, nice place and quiet.

If our hotel wifi had been working, we would have eaten here two nights rather than just tonight. This is by far the best food we have had in our 10 days in Spain. Although it was quiet when we arrived at 9:00, we felt specially cared for. We were given special small appetizers including an olive pâté on toast,... More
