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

My family and I had dinner at this restaurant during our stay in Caceres, after reading about it in trip advisor. The truth is that the food was really great and we enjoyed it a lot. My only low for this restaurant is the decoration. It was also empty on the night we visited, only one more table was taken,... More

Great discovery in a narrow street just off the Plaza Mayor. Caceres has one internationally rated restaurant in the old town but if you can't face very high prices and complex food Madruelo offers a high standard alternative. It's an unpretentious place, tastefully done out with local art on the walls and with a compact dining area. The food has... More

Caceres is famous for its historical center, and in there you'll find the famous Atrio restaurant. But if you want superb food, with excellent service and well presented you will not find a better place than the Madruelo restaurant in Caceres. In fact, this is one of the best restaurants I've been to in a while. The relationship of quality... More

It's easy to miss, given its unassuming presence on a corner of narrow old town alleys, but that would be a pity. This is a seriously good restaurant, and with prices that represent seriously good value. Complimentary canapés and a warmed tomato soup were presented prior to a starter of Morcilla in three styles for €5.95. This was not the... More

We arrived after their formal " lunch" time but sat us anyway. The waiter spoke English and answered our questions with ease. The food was wonderful- octopus, musaka, and the cheese were extraordinary. We will be back tomorrow if we stay in town.
