Dallas Observer's Description

Octopus in vinaigrette. Paella blooming with clams and shrimp and mussels. Fluffy Serrano ham with sliced lomo pork loin and rich spicy chorizo loaded with paprika. Simple spinach with pine nuts. Crisp-skinned blood sausage. Almond and garlic gazpacho. Café Madrid is Dallas' best tapas restaurant, re-creating this Spanish gustatory ritual with keen exactitude. Savor each of these little plates with a tiny glass of sherry, a stubby tumbler of Rioja or a sip of perfumey Albarino. Your mouth will never run dry.

    Okay, so this is the anti-Dallas restaurant: quiet (can you say conversation?), more laid-back, less stuffy, reasonable portions, and excellent Spanish food. We love coming here. Try the lamb skewers.

    Tapas! Ox tail stew is superb!

  • Traci S. on 12/29/11

    I could eat gallons of the herb aioli!!!

    I have been eating here for 13 years, this place never disappoints. Definitely get the Spanish potato omelette. It is the best carbs you have ever had and so worth it!
