Maybe a bit off the tourist path but well worth it. Excellent food and atmosphere. Wold recommend the octopus and the calamari and the beef. Very friendly and helpful staff that can guide you through both on and off the menu list. Definitely would go again.

After almost nearly two years, we happily returned to Alcaravea and once again were not disappointed. The great service and delicious food continue. The Secreto Pork is NOT to be missed; It is a highly sought-after pork, a special cut, from the famous Bellota Pigs. Make sure to order half portions of everything because the portions are generous and that... More

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

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
