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

we always go there being in madrid.it is a typical large madrid restaurant divided in several rooms located in the chic salamanca area. You eat fish,gambas,lobster all of top quality,good wine list. It is a little bit expensive,but it is really worth going there

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

This is an excellent and well-known restaurant but the place is extremely expensive, especially for Spain. I have traveled widely and eaten in wonderful establishments around the world, and I felt a bit insulted by the prices at La Trainera. The atmosphere isn't what one might expect when a place is so pricey, either. The restaurant was crowded when I... More

Tried the sole, or lenguado as it is called in Spain, and it was absolutely the best I tried in Madrid. This is a relaxed and not pompous resto but can get crowded. It is not cheap but it is worth it.

Another fantastic seafood place in Madrid is the Trainera. The food is wonderful, try the Merluza with Prawns and Garlic, of course together with the house albariño. The service is superb and the atmosphere is very local and right in the middle of the Salamanca shopping district. A great place for a nice lunch. Try it and you won't be... More
