Cachivache is a restaurant that isn’t exactly in the center of Madrid, but it’s worth the haul if you’re looking for good food and a cool atmosphere. Luis and I went to Cachivache on a Thursday night and the place was packed! People walking in the doors couldn’t get a table, but we were lucky enough to find a cozy spot at the bar. We ordered a couple glasses of red wine while we perused the menu for some food. Overall, we loved the place and would highly recommend it for a cool place to have dinner with friends, or a place to grab a few drinks and share some food at the bar. The prices are extremely reasonable and the portions are generous! Here is a full review of Cachivache.
- Address: Calle Serrano, 221, 28016 Madrid
- Atmosphere: Cool, lots of iron and wood, with pops of color. Not much natural light. The restaurant is very long and narrow. Has a fun vibe.
- Type of food: Spanish/ modern. There are all of the Spanish classics, like patatas bravas, croquetas, tostas, etc, but with a modern twist on each. They also have vegetable-based dishes, seafood, meat, and homemade desserts.
- What we ordered: Huevos con patata, trufa, y parmesano (eggs with potato, truffel and parmesan) (10.50€) and troceado de ternerna gallega al cabrales (beef with a cabrales sauce) (10.50€). We loved both dishes, but I especially loved the eggs dish because truffel is my love language. Both were decent-sized portions for the price. We left full after sharing those two plates and a glass of red wine each.
- Other recommendations: It was fun to watch what other people were eating. Some things that looked especially good included: dados de Salmon de Alaska… , Taboule de quinoa, and the milhojas de tomate.
- Tips: Make a reservation if you want a table! Even though this place was far, it was still full! Also, get a bunch of plates to share.
- Would I recommend it?: Yes, absolutely.
- Would I go back?: Yes! Looking forward to it.
Rating: 9.5/10 for food, 10/10 for atmosphere
