We've been here a few times now, the place is always busy, the staff are friendly and efficient, and the food is good and reasonably priced. Usually we have a cold tapa as a starter then a paella to share, but this last visit we tried a selection of tapas. The portions are larger than we are used to in... More

My wife and I have been to Olde Madrid quite a few times. The food is always delicious... and we always order too much food... but then we have leftovers for the next day. My favorite dish is the Marisco Traditional Paella... but we also love the crab cakes, Mama Chuy's Bistec, the Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms, the olives... and for... More

Visit Olde Madrid if you are really, really hungry. They serve a Paella that is gigantic, and fabulous. I usually take about half of it home. I have visited here several times. as it is only about a block from my home. I usually go with friends, and it is a good place to share a paella -- it will... More

If you are looking for a single meal in Racine, you have to make this your stop. This family ran business has a menu inspired by recipes from home. Small tapas plates make it a great experience to share among the table and try many new dishes. As a resident of the area, this is our #1 go-to for weekend... More

We are heading there tonight for dinner. Not just tapas but Paella as well. Also luscious Sangria. We think this is a real asset to Racine and has endured the test of several years of operation with consistently good food and a nice atmosphere.

Not a big restaurant, just one room with around fifteen tables and a bar you can eat at. Pleasant atmosphere with ochre coloured walls. Friendly service Well flavoured large tapas dishes (so not traditional Spanish small plates) all we tried were good, with the meatballs my favourite. Pallas were also well liked.

Tapas are small spanish dishes, usually served as appetizers with drinks just after office hours to bridge the time till dinner at about 11pm.... Nobody outside Spain has dinner that late, so no surprise that tapas have grown info meal dishes everywhere else, but they are usually still small plates. Not in Olde Madrid. Here each tapas was almost a... More

I have heard about Ole Madrid for several years, but never gone. A friend suggested it last week, and I was pleasantly surprised.m I often avoid tapas because they tend to be priced high for small quantities. This was not the case here. Three tapas more than filled up my friend and me. They were very tasty, and I liked... More

This is not the place to eat if you are watching your salt intake. I've tried this place 3 times and all I can taste is salt and, more often than not, I see most of my food swimming in oil (assume olive oil). I attribute the success of this place to the friendly staff (they are nice) and the... More
