It is a old restaurant and not all waiters speak English. But the food is very good. If you go there, you must eat the "Paella com mariscos".

This is an old established restaurant near Plaza Major. Quiet, comfortable tables not packed together, white linen table clothes, discreet and efficient service, and the sea food was super fresh, very well cooked and presented, simply, but in the best classical tradition. The wine suggested by the head waiter (they do not have a "sommelier" because their staff are all... More

Another great place for seafood in the plaza mejor area well worth trying. Very good service, super wine list and and a nice outdoor area to watch the world go by. Will definitely go back.

Very close to Casa Mayor and Arenal, very traditional old restaurant, limited English spoken, lovely local Spanish food, do try the prawns fro Huelva or the Seafood Paella, cost around 40 Euro for two courses with wine per person, nice atmosphere.

We have visited this restaurant over the decade and it gets better. We had Marques de Riscal reserva rioja to go with our food. The chiperones were excellent my wife said and the rape de la ria al ajillo was good but not of the same standard. The pulpa a la gallega was excellent - as it should be but... More

I visit this restaurant every time I am in Madrid. It is in the center of Madrid very close to plaza mayor. Dispite the information in the other reviews there are menus both in English and Spanish. But the Spanish menu has the special of the day. We had very nice fish soup (sopa mariscos) and crema de asparragos. One... More

We ate two times at the Casa Gallega during our stay in Madrid. That restaurant was suggested by our hotel and it was really a good advice. The first time we ate a plate of grilled sea food, fresh and tasty and the second one a delicious "lubina croute de sel". A pity we weren't able to go a 3th... More

We are here on a Sunday night when it was quiet but we were the only foreigners. They have a list of recommendations of the day as well as the usual laminated menu. Lots of interesting fish but you need a good phrase book to read the specials as they are in Spanish only! We had white asparagus from Navarra... More

If you like fish this is a place to visit. Wonderfully fresh (how do they get such fresh fish to Madrid so quickly?), expertly and simply cooked. House white wine a standout. This is an unpretentious regular haunt where we meet Madrileno friends for a meal when we visit the city.
