Maybe the only con is that is quite noisy. I will be back soon for a typical "cocido" (don't miss to order it the day before)

Does never fail us in our expectations. The star dish is the Roasted Lamb can recommend as one of the best we have had around that area.There are other dishes which are excellent also but if it is your first time there I would recommend the Lamb. On the sweet side my best is the cheese cake but do not... More

Very nice restaurant, very typical and real Spanish traditional. I really like the atmosphere, very good for business and the best dishes are the Cordero and the jamon Iberico. The service is fast and very use to deal with foreigners.

If you find yourself in Madrid do not miss this Restaurant, the staff are very polite & professional, the restaurant is clean & welcoming and the food is exceptional for the price…The house special is Roast lamb and I can honestly say its the best lamb I have ever eaten its absolutely delicious.

I do not deny that this is a nice restaurant. However, I don´t think that is spectacular. I bit expansive that transform the price/quality ratio not too favorable. I had the famous roasted baby lamb, yes, nice, but not spectacular.

The restaurant -- located just 2 blocks south of Place Mayor, on the vibrant Calle Baja, serves a wonderful meal, and does so very graciously. We were two couples dining, and each couple ordered the roast lamb for two. The section was brought to the table, then removed for serving. Each diner got a nice portion, and a third section...

We ate here during our trip to Madrid. If you want the dish they are famous for you must ask ahead of time. The place is big and was not very busy. The put out two breads (without asking) and charged us for both, which we thought was strange. My wife had the hen while I had the deer. The... More

The restaurant is located in the old Madrid, south of the beautiful Plaza Mayor. The place has been well kept and remodeled. The furniture gives the place a somehow rustic, historic... More

Posada de la villa is a three story restaurant in the heart of Madrid. It claims to have been there since 1642. It does the most exquisite roast lamb cooked in a wood-fired oven. I have been there many times and to be honest the lamb is so good I didn't try anything else. The Bellota ham is always good... More
