Very, very nice restaurant with warm welcome - a bit overpriced

The phonecall to ask for a table was a very welcoming experience: the host, a beautyfull older Spanish woman, does an excellent job in letting you feel welcome! The evening itself was very nice: good service, very nice athmosphere. The food was also good, but a little overpriced. Our diner for two... read more

And yes it was funny to an extent but given the hefty price tag at then end hugely disappointing. Service pretty dismal , mostly dismissive. First and second choice from the menu not available. Brought wrong wine too , assume didn't have what we ordered but who knows. Had a decent steak and chips (no veg etc offered or served)... More

That the hundreds of photographs on the walls of this atmospheric restaurant, just off Plaza Espana, are almost without exception of your hostess with dignatories, celebrities and friends does not augur well. But get over that and here you can join with the locals who know how to enjoy excellent food and wine, expertly served by the attentive staff. This... More

Popular with locals, but the food was very poor. Don't try the lamb shoulder. Perhaps it suits local tastes. The service was quick and professional. The live lobsters in a tank was off putting.

This felt like a restaurant from the Spanish mainland. The ambience and food had a slightly old-fashioned feel that was heightened by the decor and especially the multitude of wall photographs featuring the owner and [presumably] celebrities of varying distinction.. You often saw that in Spanish restaurants, perhaps less so now. We had a perfectly agreeable meal on a quiet... More

We visit regularly and have never had a bad dish let alone bad meal. The service is excellent and professional. The quality of food is excellent. Some of the best cheese, ham and seafood. I can't recommend the veal chop enough. The desserts if you can manage one are a delight. We eat most things but are fussy about quality... More

This is actually a Michelin recommended place, which so far was a very good hint as to high class kitchen. Los Cuatro Postes proves that also Michelin fails in between. Miss it. It is messy inside, and food is everything but to be recommended.
