Food reasonable but the price and quality doesn't match. The service from the staff was almost non-existing and with an arrogant athmosphere. We have never been to a restaurant or cafe where the service was that bad, but we also spoke english as we can't...speak Spanish - maybe this is some of the reason :-)More

Old world style places are my husband/I favorites and this cafe is beautiful inside! We were not available during recent vacay to have a meal but did have drinks late afternoon/early evening and it was so peaceful inside, just loved everything about the place -...would definitely return!More

Delicious food and wine. Prompt courteous service. Wonderful (outdoor) setting and view. Went inside to the bathroom and was delighted by the quaint and romantic setting/decor- though very limited space. We felt welcomed and noticed the table next to us was there hours after we...had come and gone. Soft shell crab- fresh and delicious Olives standard but quite fine Extensive selection of wine Vegetable tray plentiful and well prepared A BIT pricey but worth it for ambiance aloneMore

The restaurant is in a great location and when we went there were plenty of tables outside. However when we asked for a table, they initially said they had no availability, only for them to offer a Spanish couple a table a few minutes later....I felt as though as we spoke in English we were not being treated the same and I found this very distasteful. I then just booked a table online (there were plenty available), once I did this they could not refuse us. However after being treated so poorly, we left and went to a restaurant that actually wanted our business. So my recommendation is to not go here, they are unfriendly and if you talk in English then you may be discriminated against.More

This is no tapas tourist trap. We were treated here by Madrid natives and the food was wonderful. We shared anchovies, ceviche, meaty calamari and of course, outstanding Iberico ham. We finished with a decadent but show-stopping bread in caramel sauce that demanded (and received)...an espresso chaser. Great outing at a great place with great food in a great setting with great friends. You can’t get more “5 star” than that!More

Right outside the Royal Palace and on the edge of Orient Park, this outside cafe was good. The cold tomato soup was good. The tomato tuna salad was good. Being near the park and the preGothic king statues was the best part. There was an...occasional waft of sewage. Expensive.More

On our recent trip through Spain we had dinner at the Cafe de Oriente in Madrid. this was a group dinner and consisted entirely of Tapas. Although the tapas were interesting and tasty there were no options for vegetarians and most consisted of ham or...pork which were not acceptable to us. this was a pity and should have been catered for.More
