Las Cuevas de Luis Candelas is located in the Arco de Cuchilleros, next to the Plaza Mayor in Madrid. Founded in 1949, it is one of Madrid's most historic restaurants.

Today, Las Cuevas de Luis Candelas retains its original features. Its name comes from the famous caves that sheltered the infamous 19th century bandit, Luis Candelas, who robbed from the rich to give to the poor.

Las Cuevas de Luis Candelas offers traditional Madrid cuisine, including roasted suckling pig and suckling lamb slow cooked in a wood-fired oven, 'cocido madrileño' - Madrid's traditional three course stew, oven-roasted hake 'a la cazuela', tripe, or typical Madrid desserts, all accompanied by an extensive wine list. The historic Las Cuevas restaurant will take visitors back in time.

    Me encantó la comida, el lugar, y la atención de los camareros. La comida excelente! Enhorabuena!

    Tourist trap! So many other restaurant and bars in Madrid with MUCH better service and food. Worst sucking pig I have had (have tried quite a few in Madrid/Segovia). Rude waiter even though the place was half-empty (or maybe a connection there, I don't know) and at first billed for things we didn't get. Nice location and interior, though. Will never go back and warn people about it.

    LA CENA ESTUVO INCREIBLE. MUY BUENA ATENCION, MUY BUENA COMIDA Y EXCELENTE SANGRIA.

    Excelente el Servicio de Reservas On Line. Mi única observación es que pedí una ubicación y no fue tenida en cuenta no obstante que había espacio en las diferentes Cuevas

    Todo estuvo excelente... De botana, una tortilla de patatas y unas croquetas. De plato fuerte, el tradicional cochinillo; exquisito. Ya no hubo lugar para un postre... Ah, y de bebida, una jarra de Sangría, deliciosa
