I was in the neighboorhood and discovered this place based on tge ratiing in Tripadvisor. I was not disappointed. Wide variety of main courses, including squid, fish, pork and beef. Prperarion was excellent. Vary friendly staff that speaks English. Menu includes translation. What surprised me is that VAT is not included in the menu prices. Perhaps tgis iscommon in Spain

This restaurant was simply fantastic from the minute we come inside. We were met by some smilingly and entusiastic persons just inside the door. They recommend some food and the food was perfect, and same with the redwine they recommend to it. We went back there three times, and last time with 6 other persons, and they all loved it.

I should highlight the season dishes which are not in the menu. Examples are "arroz con placton" and "carne de ternera en salsa de Jack Daniel's". You can order side dishes, which allows you to taste more specialties. Good wine and beer selection.

We had dinner here and it was really good. Great atmosphere, good sized portions and a really helpful waitress that spoke English well enough for us to enjoy our evening. We paid around €65 for two courses beer and wine and it was well worth it. What we especially liked was the fact that every table was spanish speaking and... More

This place was recommended to us by locals and it sure was the best spot we went during our 4 days trip. Food was delicious and the prices more than reasonable. <30€ for two person with three course menu, drinks, coffee,...wow. We did not have good experience with service in Madrid, but the service at this place was outstanding. Definitely... More

Great food in relaxed atmosphere. Good for groups or couples. Plenty of choice but needed to understand Spanish for the menu.

First of all, food is amazing. Everything that we tried. Second, staff is super professional and friendly. In Madrid even in most expensive restaurants the staff is not like in Alcaravea. The ambience is really nothing special, but comfortable. For me food+service are top.

Great food, great atmosphere outstandard service. When living in Madrid this was my favourite restaurant by far and as a frequent customer I used to received an excellent service from the staff including free wine or free dessert! The food is not the typical Spanish boring tapas perhaps it does have the typical ingredients of the spanish cuisine, ask for... More

Staying in Chamberi

Neighbourhood Profile
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighbourhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
