If you like fresh seafood this is a wonderful place. I, unfortunately, had entrecot (steak) which is not their best dish (duh...it is a seafood restaurant!) but my wife loved the seafood and it was clear everyone else in the restaurant did as well. The service was friendly and quick and they were helpful with suggestions. We put this on... More

there's a lot ot be said about managing expectations. A friend recommended this place as the best restaurant he has eaten at in Madrid, if not all of Spain. We were excited to try it, but alas, the food did not meet up to expectations. As many of the other Tripadvisor reviewers noted, it's an institution, and the place was... More

We were told this was the best fish restaurant in Madrid and perhaps I expected more choice. Nonetheless we had a very nice dinner with some delicious prawns to start with and then sole. I cannot remember any vegetables on offer and only boiled potatoes. Maybe my memory is at fault! The staff were efficient and in the end quite... More

Based on the reviews, I expected much better seafood and fish. The service is friendly, although ordering in English was a little challenging. The menu is extensive and the restaurant was filled on a week night. Great Iberia ham and mussels to start. Prawns were ok. Sole for main course was good and limited choices for dessert. Overall, food was... More

There were five of us for dinner at La Trainera last night. We had pre ordered Turbot for the main course and assorted platters for starters. The Turbot was excellent and with a generous portions. This is the second time I have visited the restaurant and I thought this was the best meal we had. We let the sommelier choose... More

I just got back to my hotel from a dinner here. I don't usually write reviews, but had to this time. The concierge at The Ritz recommended this place, so we went. The shrimp and oysters looked delicious and most of the tables around us had multiple servings of them- and my dinner was good too, it just wasn't as... More

Which is why i was so confused by some of these reviews . But i genuinely loved the place , it is an institution ,... More

We were told this was one of the best fish restaurants in Madrid. What a disappointment. Despite both of us being fluent Spanish speakers, we were treated like unwanted tourists, shepherded into a corridor rather than a room at the back, with a small table and "quaint" chairs, bare table with no cloth and nylon napkins. We had quite decent... More
