This was a lucky choice as I used Tripadvisor as a guide , but at the time this was well down the list.... The staff were very welcoming and helpful advising us on the menu. We had heard that the barbecued beef was very good so we went with that as well as some bbq octopus and a salad and... More

We were walking past and saw the sign in the window 'special today gambas a la plancha', it was nearing lunch time so we entered, what a great atmosphere, the bar area was packed with diners eating their tapas and drinking beer, we asked for a table and were seated quickly, we ordered the 'special' and a plate of ham...

An American Airlines fellow employee who overnights here recommended this gem of a neighborhood restaurant. I certainly agree with all the TA great reviews! Get away from the Puerto del Sol area to find a non-tourist eatery! You'll not be disappointed. Oh, we never even looked at a menu, and went with the staff recommendations! Happy we did!

We came here during busy lunch hour and had to wait a while for a table. We enjoyed some mojitos in the mean time which were excellent. The food we subsequently ordered was really good and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere!

This is a great restaurant. Price, quality and service deserve a highest grade. Such a long choice of Spanish homemade plates offered by the maitre that I could not remember all. All we ordered was fantastic, including wine. And staff always willing to help you. The place is packed with locals, since it is a gem out of the touristic... More

I was looking for a restaurant near to my hotel. Alcaravea was 15 minutes walk away. The kitchen opens at 8pm so we had a drink in the bar. There were little plates to keep us going. Cold cuts, cheese and great tasting liver. The meal in the restaurant was very good. There was an excellent ratatouille with eggs ans... More

I had a lunch there. The traditional lunch menu had several options, and was very good and reasonably priced. Same as the one in Alcala de Henares, it has the warm atmosphere of a family owned restaurant that I appreciate very much. Recommendable for nice lunch!

After a strong recommendation from a colleague, I took 5 people to dinner there last week and was not disappointed. Great food, particularly the octopus, "explode in the mouth eggs" and the rissoles. Generous portions of booze too. I feel the need to pay this forward. Great place and will definitely go back when I return to Madrid.

We had half-portions of the grilled octopus tentacles, baby monkfish and mixed wild mushrooms. Beautiful food and wonderful service, with someone always checking to make sure we were happy. The portions are enormous and are for sharing. Really enjoyed this, and plan to go back.
