We saw the reviews, and agree that it is well worth the trip out of the heart of the city. The owner makes incredible recommendations for Americans unaccustomed to Spanish cuisine. Everything was delicious and the portions were large. Sharing was recommended. The house red wine was the best. We've been in Madrid a couple of days and regret we didn't come sooner. Very reasonably priced for the quantity and quality!

The restaurant was a very nice surprise. The environment is really good, the people is very helpful and caring, the food is amazing with reasonable prices. Try the "bacalao confítado con ajo, gambón y guíndilla".

We decided to have a dinner at Alcaravea based on the good reviews on Tripadvisor (of course, as we always check out!).
The restaurant itself doesn't appear special on first sight, but the ambience seemed nice. The service was great, we were helped by a friendly, humorous man who speaks English, this was very helpful because the menu is all in Spanish and our level of Spanish is not that great. The food was delicious (and the portions are sufficient too, it's no need to order more than 2 dishes for 2 persons!) and good value for what you pay.
What we liked about this restaurant is that it's a typical Spanish place, full of locals and practically no other tourists. The waiter was surprised that we, foreigners, knew about this place!
The experience is truely different than going to a restaurant in the city center, but in a good way. Definitly recommendable!

What a great break from the expensive tourist spots we'd been sent to by our guide book. The food was the best we had in Spain; the atmosphere was wonderful and the staff was terrific. Wonderful spot if you want to experience Madrid like a local!!
