Casa Ciriaco review 1 Users say 4/5 Rate it

Pick your way down the side of the open kitchen to a deep dining room hung with pictures of visiting royals and grateful celebrities, along with rather grimmer photos of the 1906 bombing of Alfonso XIII's wedding procession - which happened right outside the door. Undamaged, and still going strong, Casa Ciriaco was a meeting place for the intelligentsia in pre-Civil War days, and although it no longer attracts too many thinkers, the Castilian fare is a taste of days gone by. Cochinillo (suckling pig) is the speciality, along with partridge and butter beans, when in season. Waiters are as old-school as you'd expect, but very friendly.

The restaurant retains a very old-establishment kind of atmosphere which is rather charming in this day and age. The waiters are decidedly old-school as well and are polite, helpful and always know when to appear!

I tried the partridge with white beans and it was fantastic. The dessert as suggested by the elderly waiter was brilliant as well.

All in all, a hugely recommended place.
