As good as you get in Spain! The tapas and paella were authentic and as good as we had in Hondrabbia, Madrid and Barcelona.

We have been here several times. It's best in a large group so you can share the dishes. I love their Paella - if you are interested, order it right away so they can get started on it. You will end up taking some home as the portions are huge. The tapas are good - the menu will change from... More

My family has now been here about 6-7 times and we never leave disappointed. The first time there, we were largely unfamiliar with Spanish foods and the waiter was very good in explaining our various options. Typically we order 2-3 tapas and a paella, and that is more than enough for 4-6 people. Every tapa we have ever ordered here... More

It was my first visit to Olde Madrid and my first 'Tapas' encounter. Wow! Very enjoyable and fulfilling in every sense. Service was attentive and organized. This little joint is sooo busie and crowded that we had to leave and wait at a bar across the street for about 45 minutes. There were several other parties waiting there as well,... More

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.
