We were reaching a point in our vacation where we were discovering that most eateries in Spain tend to be conservative in their range and way of cooking - each restaurant was very "safe" in their choices and as a result, the variety tends to be limited.
Alcaravea was different from the moment you open the menu - salads alone took up an entire page. And many of the cooking styles and ingredients used were different. We had no idea what to order really but was given recommendations by their servers and yes, we totally agree with the reviews here - this place is a two thumbs up!
We went twice in our our 5 day stay in Madrid. The absolute best dish we had there was the Cod Fish. Absolutely superb.
We also found out that their seafood comes in on Thursdays, so if you are able to head there towards the end of the week - that's probably when the menu is at its most extensive and at its freshest.
We didn't make reservations so we turned up at 7 pm (the kitchen opens at 8 pm) and managed to get some outdoor seats. For their indoor seats, reservations are a requirement. HIghly recommended.
