This is my favourite seafood restaurant in Madrid. My favourites : carabineros, ostras, pulpo, cigalas, percebes. They are all top quality and never overcooked. The Oysters are small and really tasty, which is my personal preference. The fish cooked on the oven is really good here too. What makes Trainera a true institution in Madrid is the personnel working there.... More

This Marisco restaurant on La Gasca in a very posh Madrid neighborhood has outstanding fish and Marisco. You can have tapas at the bar or eat in the restaurant which has quite a lot of seating. Reservations are recommended since the plan is quite popular. It is a god place for business dinners since there are a number of small... More

I always go to this place when Im in Madrid. The quality of their food is the best. The service too. Thing´s to don´t miss: Sigalas and the fish pay as desert. This is a place to don´t miss in you next Madrid visit.

This restaurant has the old school and classic vibe. We went to this lovely restaurant for lunch with a local and we're not disappointed. From The waiters to the captains, all dresses in spotless whites with top notch service. the restaurant was packed with locals who I believe were all working executives and regulars who had stopped by for lunch....

The TRAINERA has been serving its clientele over 50 yrs. The menu is simple, hake, sole, turbot or seafood. The service is excellent and the wine list substantial. This is a place families and friends have come to for perfect fish, no nonsense, no surprises and always perfect. I couldn't imagine living in Madrid without coming here.

The style is a bit oldfashioned (The waitors all in their late fifties) and the spaces are narrow even if the restaurant is quite big. But the restaurant has earned it's reputation through Excellent raw materials, seafood cooking "know how" and extremely professional service. I have been there 4 times and both fish and seafood are amazing. Everything is bigger... More

This place was recommended by a local. It was worth it the seafood was delicious and high quality. It is definetly not cheap! The people there were a bit snobby, you could tell they had a lot if $$$ and the staff was a little rude. We ordered calamari in its own ink, smoked salmon, clams, and some other expensive... More

We had dinner in La Trainera. Restaurant isn't so fancy looking from outside and it has been split into multiple areas with walls. But what comes to food - it is awesome. We tasted all kind of small portions and as a main shared whole king crab and flounder. Both were done perfectly. Also have to mention the oysters which... More

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighborhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
