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

It's widely considered Madrid ,despite being landlocked , has the best fish in Spain and many people ( and a few guide books ) rate this restaurant as the best place to eat it . 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

Some of the best seafood I have ever eaten anywhere. Visited for a business lunch and all agreed the seafood was wonderfully fresh and well prepared. The lunch crowd appeared to be primarily local business people...not sure what the evening crowd is like. The restaurant, while crowded, was quiet and pleasing. Next time in Madrid, I will return.

My wife and I and our four daughters had dinner here. It was a great spot with really, really good seafood. La Trainera literally has one non-seafood item on the menu, so don't go expecting more. In my group, we ordered sea bass and sole, and it was Very, very, good. Both were served as whole fish, and we're fabulous.... More
