Hemingway used to dine here and you can see why. Old school, classy, and delicious. We had the blood sausage, croquettas, ox tail, breaded hake, and fried milk. All spectacularly delicious. The ox tail and hake were especially good. As was the gin and tonic. Delicious. Just a great place to dine and to get a nice morsel of what... More

I came here by recommandation of my friend. The food was brilliant. One of the best places to go for dining. I have to say that their staff is really good and friendly. The food was beautifully cooked. Interior of Casa Salavadore is interesting. For me that was totally new but I loved it. See you again for sure...

This was an Anthony Bourdain recommendation, so we wanted to try it. The place is quaint with photos of Hemingway and other famous people and the food unusual. Our most memorable dessert of fried milk was had here. Good to try it out!

Attentive staff, intimate atmosphere, wonderfully prepared entrees and a complementary Grappa combined for a dining experience to remember. Casa Salvador will not dissapoint.

This was a really interesting place. The walls are adorned with some stunning pictures of bullfighters through the ages both inside and outside the ring. In fact I wouldn't have been surprised if one walked in wearing all the garb and regalia whilst I was having dinner. The food was beautifully cooked in proper Spanish style and the service was...

We ate here three years ago and enjoyed the ambience and food so much that we decided to return on this trip. It was as though we were in a time warp. Nothing had changed. The décor was the same; the lighting was the same; the waiters were the same. Of course this is a good thing, since we like... More

This has been a superb restaurant for decades. A hangout for Matadors and those who follow them, it also has excellent classic dishes of Madrid. The walls are covered with photos of Matadors from many years past. It was, of course, a haunt of Hemmingway who introduced Ava Gardner to it. Ms. Gardner was known to dance on its tables.... More

Visited with Madrileno friends for a long lunch. The restaurant was full by 2pm mainly with older clientele who appear to be regulars. Much matador memorabilia to make the atmosphere intriguing.Service was attentive without being intrusive. We had gazpacho, which was delicious. Also broad beans with bacon, and then grilled hake the nicest fish Ive tasted in a while. Natillas... More

Visited Casa Salvador having seen other tripadvisor reviews and thoroughly pleased that we did. The restaurant has a very welcoming, homely atmosphere and the service is the best that we have experienced in Madrid. Food was delicious, would highly recommend the seafood. If you're looking for authentic Spanish cuisine then this place is a must.

Neighbourhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
