Ocafu is a traditional Galician restaurant in Madrid, and there are 5 locations spread across the city. This restaurant was recommended by a friend for their tortilla and simple, Spanish cuisine. Since it’s Galician, the food is mostly seafood and meat, but freshly prepared and high quality. We went on a Saturday night to their Valazquez location and a reservation is absolutely necessary for a weekend.
- Address: Calle de Velázquez, 96, 28006 Madrid
- Atmosphere: Speaking of the Velazquez location, it is upscale, clean, has linen tableclothes, and has modern touches, like warm lighting, bright tiles, and pretty lamps.
- Type of Food: Traditional Galician, which means lots of seafood, beef and potatoes, tortilla, salads, and empanada. See the menu HERE.
- What I ordered: We shared their small tortilla (shown above) and their ternera (beef) with potatoes. We each had a glass of red wine. The bill was 38€ (they charge 2.00€ per person for cubiertos). We loved both things we tried, but agreed it is a pricey restaurant. We thought the portions were perfect.
- Recommendation: Make a reservation. Also, this would be a great place to come with parents, or for a very Spanish lunch.
Rating: 10/10 for food, 10/10 for atmosphere, 9/10 for price (a little pricey IMO). Would I go back? YES!
