We had dinner here and it was really good. Great atmosphere, good sized portions and a really helpful waitress that spoke English well enough for us to enjoy our evening. We paid around €65 for two courses beer and wine and it was well worth it. What we especially liked was the fact that every table was spanish speaking and... More

This place was recommended to us by locals and it sure was the best spot we went during our 4 days trip. Food was delicious and the prices more than reasonable. <30€ for two person with three course menu, drinks, coffee,...wow. We did not have good experience with service in Madrid, but the service at this place was outstanding. Definitely... More

Great food in relaxed atmosphere. Good for groups or couples. Plenty of choice but needed to understand Spanish for the menu.

First of all, food is amazing. Everything that we tried. Second, staff is super professional and friendly. In Madrid even in most expensive restaurants the staff is not like in Alcaravea. The ambience is really nothing special, but comfortable. For me food+service are top.

Great food, great atmosphere outstandard service. When living in Madrid this was my favourite restaurant by far and as a frequent customer I used to received an excellent service from the staff including free wine or free dessert! The food is not the typical Spanish boring tapas perhaps it does have the typical ingredients of the spanish cuisine, ask for... More

Using the trip advisor app, we found this jewel in the Gaztambide neighborhood. Upscale, delicious! We enjoyed everything from the bread basket to the ensalada, tapas, cod and steak. The best "nice" meal we had in Madrid.

An excellent restaurant. The staff were incredibly friendly even though we wanted to have dinner very early (for Spanish standards). The waiter recommended the octopus and it was an amazing culinary experience. He also suggested to order only half portions and had a very good point there since we were stuffed afterwards anyway. If you're in the neighborhood, check it... More

We had dinner at this restaurant based on the very nice reviews here but we were disappointed. While the service was definitely friendly and the place seemed to be buzzing with people, the food itself was not up to the standard (or up to the prices) with the exception of the anchovies. For the rest, everything was drowned in oil... More

We went here off the back of all the other reviews and it did live up to our expectations. I think the only thing to mention is that it is quite far out and it's more of a local neighbourhood restaurant. But the portions are massive so definitely order less than you think you'll need. Even a simple tomato salad... More

Staying in Chamberi

Neighborhood Profile
Chamberi
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighborhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
