Meatlovers pay attention! Casa Paco, a typical Spanish restaurant founded in 1933 and located just beside the Plaza Mayor, is well known for its amazing steaks. Señor Paco serves his steaks in boiling oil before serving them on plates so hot that the almost-raw meat continues to cook…delicious! If you are not a fan of red meat, no worries, the restaurant has other typical Spanish dishes such as “Pollo al Ajillo” (garlic chicken).
Many famous people like Frank Sinatra and Tom Cruise have eaten here.
Reservations by phone are not accepted so it’s advisable to pass by an hour or so in advance of your meal to see how busy it is. Waiting at their nice bar can also be great fun!
