Guided by Trip Advisor [TA] reviews we decided to go away from the main thoroughfare and seek something a little behind the scenes for British tourists. Thank you so much to the TA reviewers - it was a lovely experience. The restaurant is up a side street off the Plaza Mayor and is in a very quiet area compared to... More

We ate at Madruelo based on Tripadvisor reviews. Excellent service, delicious food, and a lovely wine validated the experience. I had the fish special, grilled merluza with a sauce of mussels and scallops (very unusual to find scallops in a Spanish dish!) My husband had the beef sirloin, perfectly cooked, tender and tasty. We didn’t order dessert, but they served... More

The Michelin guide lists only 3 restaurants in Caceres. We decided to avoid the very prices 2* celeb-chef establishment and headed for this little local "Bib Gourmand" rated gem, where they served fresh local produce in a simple but sophisticated setting at a reasonable price. And that's why I give Madruelo 5*****!

This restaurant located in a small town called Caceres is one of the best of the region. The owner who is the Chef, comes to your table and recommend you what to eat. The experience is absolutely delicious.

Small, intimate, but with enough space between tables so guests don´t feel cramped, the sole reason to dine here is the full gastronomic experience. No detail is overlooked, from the selection of ingredients, through the table setting and the construction of the menu and wine list, to the service itself. So what´s on offer? After a gentle welcome and being... More

The special lunch menu was amazing and fantastic value, we loved every course , our waiter was fantastic, and very patient with us, as we have no Spanish. After ordering a bottle of wine and trying to chose a dish we gave up and had the set lunch...just do it all the courses were amazing. Thankyou

We have visited Caceres previously and disappointed with the choice of restaurants within walking distance of the old town and then we found Madruelo just off the Plaza Mayor. We were the first diners but the restaurant filled to nearly full within 30 minutes. Typically of Spain the restaurant had only just opened at 9.30 p.m. We chose the 'menu... More

Lunch during "Semana Santa". Menu. Presentation was ok, a bit repetitive, but pleasant. Flavours were nothing special, plates looked like they should have tasted better. Reasonable quality, nothing to really remember. Wine recommended in the menu was slightly disappointing.

Excellent food in great environment but our experience of the service was a big negative, as a few other reviewers have mentioned. Long waiting times on a week day lunchtime, a very unhelpful member of staff and a tasting menu that has to be ordered by everyone on a table (why? - it is not paella) really detracted from our...

We had a slow-paced meal one afternoon in this well-regarded but not too busy place, right off the Plaza Mayor. Filled with old world ambiance, with floral patterned tablecloths and a high arched ceiling, you know you're "really in Spain." The wine list is varied and filled with local wines. The service was attentive and helpful; we settled on two... More
