Cafe de la Iberia is well located with a very nice atmosphere. If you can eat in the balcony it has a great view of the town square. Their menu is varied and definitely try the Rape Fish, the quail and the aged beef cooked on a rock at your table.

All the food was bad, the service was bad, the place was empty (OK, it was freezing cold out and we were tourist early), the tapas tasted old and flavorless, the photos of the bullfighters were interesting and the upstairs decor had a nice old world feel to it.

If you're hungry, come by all means just don't expect this to be a culinary wonderland. Portions are generous but rather plain. Staff is friendly if a little erratic when confirming orders, overall a very average experience.

Chinchon is a beautiful town with a bull fighting ring for "plaza mayor"! Restaurants surround the plaza and one of them is Cafe Iberia. The place is very nice with a beautiful patio. However, that's as good as it gets... We were six and there was nothing good in our order (except for the fries). The bread is not bad... More

We loved this unique restaurant overlooking the square in Chinchon. When we visited the square was fulfilling its duel role as a bullring. We explored the square but on seeing Cafe de la Iberia we knew this was where we wanted to have dinner. We booked a table on the balcony for dinner. It was a highlight of a wonderful... More

It was a quite chilly October evening, and many of the restaurants in the centre were closed. We went to cafe de la Iberia and chose from the meat menu. The meat was tasteful - almost raw - but chewy. The waiter spoke just Spanish so it was impossible to communicate. We paid narly 60 Euros for the happening, and... More

Anywhere overlooking the bull ring at Chinchon is not going to be cheap and this isn't. If you can get a table on the balcony, the view is worth the price. The food is of mixed quality. My wife had a salad starter which was tasteless, I had aparagus which were delicious. The service gets a bit lax as they... More

This place has lived long in our memories so we returned to stay in the town just to eat here. No English spoken, but at the end of a tour we were familiar enough with the menu to order. Eventually an English menu appeared so ask if you need one. As others have mentioned, worth a visit just for the... More

Chinchon is just 35 minutes from Madrid centre and this small village is a great hidden gem. La plaza mayor (the Centre square) is almost unique in Spain as it still has the old bullfighting ring inside the square. This restaurant in the square was a great surprise. Tapas, main courses and service was much better than expected and overall... More
