We spent a month in Spain when our son did study abroad in Barcelona.......Cafe Madrid is a great reminder of that time and our favorite tapas restaurant in Dallas. Jonathan is fantastic and is a great ambassador not only to his workplace but also to...More

Patatas bravas, gambas al ajillo, pulpo en vinagreta, jamon iberico(San Fermin), croquetas, chorizo español and paella with traditional sangria are some of the traditional tapas you can enjoy. You will not be disappointed.

Cafe Madrid is in a nice place in Dallas. It is supposed to be a Spanish restaurant, but it is not. I am from Spain, and the cuisine tries to imitate Spanish food. The "tortilla española" is awful; it is not made with fried potatoes,...More

This tumeric chicken tapa is amazing. They have a great happy hour with cava and spanish beers. The owner is great. A nice lady. One can tell their staff is proud to work here. Cant wait to go back next week!

Very enjoyable meal. We were hoping for an authentic Barcelona tapas menu but..... they tried. They came close and we enjoyed a pretty authentic Spanish meal.

Had dinner at this wonderful little restaurant tonight. Styled like a real European tapas bar/restaurant with outside dining, big doors open to the street, all add to the laid back vibe. Extensive wine list, sangrias of course and an extensive tapas list. We tried five...More

Great spot for tapas and people watching. Service is good and all the classic tapas are on the menu. Sangria, cocktails, wine and beer are all available. The tapas are a bit pricey for the size but that goes with the territory in this neighborhood.

The food was good but pricy for the amount. Service was ok but not outstanding. If the price was 30% less it would be a good value restaurant but for the price the quality and service did not support it.
