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.

    We had dinner at the restaurant in 1995. Visiting Madrid we decided to do it again. We were not disappointed. Great meal as before. Recommended the restaurant to various people we met.

    Excepcional ubicación y decoración,bonita colección de platos y azulejos antiguos decorando las paredes, buenos platos clasicos como el cochinillo o el cordero...excelentes los espárragos verdes...

    LLevabamos tiempo queriendo visitarlo y nos ha encantado. El lugar es emblemático y solo por eso merece la pena, pero además el trato es excelente y las raciones de calidad. El pulpo estaba exquisito. Quizá el precio sea algo elevado, pero creo que hay una zona para tapas igual de bonita, que puede ser más económica. Merece la pena
