Description: At Vuida de Vacas we define our cuisine as cocina tradicional de mercado or market-fresh traditional cooking. We use only seasonal produce, and our dishes hail from popular tradition. From the 20th century early years till now we continue to serve dishes which have their origin in traditional Madrileno or Segovian fare: callos a la madrilena (Madrid-style tripe); gallina en pepitoria (chicken fricassee: chicken in an egg and almond sauce); garlic soup, cocido (the Madrid version is a consomme with chickpeas, cabbage, chorizo and meat added)

“Divine Spanish experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

I was in Spain last month and I really was hopping to eat original Spanish food so my aunt took me to this place and it was absolutely perfect. The environment is quite relaxing and very traditional I mean you can feel the Spanish and positive atmosphere there. honestly the food was delicious. I recommend their eggplant tempura it was pretty tasty. The people super kind and funny!!!
I wish I would enjoy that experience again in my next time in Spain.

“Great food in a lovely, friendly restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

What a difference in comparison to the offhand service given by some of the restaurants in the Playa Mayor. Fresh, tasty food is served with a smile at Viuda de Vacas.

“Traditional food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

This family run restaurant in the heart of Madrid serves very traditional and especial dishes like the bacalao brass o callos a la madrileña.
The place is simple and unpretentious but the service makes you feel divine!

I will definitely go back as soon as I have a chance
