Unique experience to spend an evening with the locals enjoying good food and hearing beautiful, talented singers. I believe we were the only English speakers there but one waitress who understood English, took great care of us. When the dinner and singing was over, the audience and the singers formed a conga line and the party began. Every one was just warming up when we left at 12:30. This was a night we will remember as a highlight of our trip.
Nice meal but what a lovely night out. Waiters so friendly and locals made us feel really welcome. Excellent night out.
What a wonderful experience! The meal and service was great and then there were all the fantastic voices! It was a night to remember. Would highly recommend it.
It was the best experience ever.... Everything was wonderful: the venue, the food, the event, the service, the table we sat. If someone loves this kind of music, that is opera or bel canto, don't miss it.
Thank you Viator for having given us this opportunity!!!
This was amazing , food was ok , but totally brilliant entertainment, best night out I have had in a long while .
It was a very good show and a good dinner. The singers were top rated but more
, they served us too.
Excellent evening, good food and service combined with fantastic entertainment.
Best dinner and opera ever!!! The whole evening was amazing....food delicious and the waiters and waitress have such wonderful voices and move around the room interacting with the audience. We would definitely go again.
This dinner was an affair to remember. Fabulous, expectacular. I will recommemded to everybody. Amazing singers and service was also excellent. Thanks Viator
you dont have to be an opera buff to enjoy this evening.The hall is romantically lit,the singers sing very popular
arias,and are extremely friendly,the food is really good.And all experience is just wonderfull
This is the best place of my trip to Madrid 2 weeks ago. The Castafiore restaurant serves 4-course dinner with awesome waiters and waitresses who perform opera songs right next to your table. I believe they are the pro artist of a local opera house. Everybody is nice, polite and helpful. I certainly will be back this place next time. Thanks
What wonderful voices an excellent evening .Hard to find but well worth it . T
he only trouble with such incredible entertainment was that you forgot what you were eating. Our Spanish was limited but we enjoyed every minute.
What can I say. I will never forget this place. The food was amazing. The singers were out of this world. We were the only tourists in the restaurant and were made to feel extremely welcomed. The staff were excellent and we can't thank them enough for all they did. My Finace has been in contact with the restaurant weeks before, arranging to propose to me. This place and the restaurant will always be a special place for us. Thank you for everything. I would recommend this to all. An experience that will never be matched.
I had a great time! Very warm and welcoming ambiance and professional staff made me feel at home. It was a unique and unsurpassable experience something that will stay with me for a long time.
I do advise everyone to visit this place when in Madrid.
Best night of our 2 week European vacation. What a way to start off holiday with a great night. Staff and servers were very friendly. Beautiful vocals. Felt very welcome and comfortable. Amazing.
The food and ambience was excellent. The food and drink supplied was excellent. The waiters and opera singers were exceptional and made the evening very special. It completed my wonderful visit to Madrid showing the people at La Castafiore and Madrid inhabitants to be friendly and generous. I would say this trip is a big must see when visiting Madrid. It's a real treat! thank you for the memorable experience.
It was a totally enjoyable experience, even for an individual who isn't that knowlegdable about opera. The dinner was good and the staff plesant and made the night an evening to remember.
This was a very unusual, fun event. I don't know how it would be for locals (although their were Spanish tourists or locals attending), but it was a great meal, wonderful singing, and a great end getting you up and out of your seat.

Did not know what to expect when we got there. Prebooking got a fixed menu (two selection (meat or fish) for entree (and any dessert) rest was prefixed. Food was good, no limit on wine! Be prepared to stay the entire time. It says 9pm - 12:15am and it means it. Intimate setting and the waiters and waitresses do the singing (and they are GOOD). Music and singing during the meal and after. If you are in a hurry you miss a lot of the entertainment and fun. If you are in walking distance good idea to go on major streets and walk back as it will settle the food/wine. Also please note that the staff speaking limited english (one waitress spoke good english). We figured out that is was a special place since most of the guests were from Spain!
I have a wonderful night at La Castafiore! The food was very good and the opera performance amazing! They planned the night very well. For a start they do longer breaks between each song, so that people can talk a little bit while enjoying dinner. Towards the end of the night, there's more and more singing, and we ended up all dancing! Great night to remember!
the Entertainment was Great, the Food was very poor!!
Service People very nice!!!
Need to improve the Food for that price
I was pleased with the artists but we found NO body to welcome us as visitors.We were wondering if we were at the right place.....
Futhermore we had only tow choices to eat. The fish was VERY cold and the beefsteak was not good at all.
The potatoes were full of oil.
We saw that other people had différent choices. WHY not us?
The singing during dinner was excellent. The food was just ok. The service was not very good. I felt the Viator guests were treated like second class guests.
