MUST ONE OF THE BEST IN CACERES

We have visited Caceres previously and disappointed with the choice of restaurants within walking distance of the old town and then we found Madruelo just off the Plaza Mayor. We were the first diners but the restaurant filled to nearly full within 30 minutes. Typically of Spain the restaurant had... read more

Lunch during "Semana Santa". Menu. Presentation was ok, a bit repetitive, but pleasant. Flavours were nothing special, plates looked like they should have tasted better. Reasonable quality, nothing to really remember. Wine recommended in the menu was slightly disappointing.

Excellent food in great environment but our experience of the service was a big negative, as a few other reviewers have mentioned. Long waiting times on a week day lunchtime, a very unhelpful member of staff and a tasting menu that has to be ordered by everyone on a table (why? - it is not paella) really detracted from our...

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...
