We have visited there several times, and enjoyed good food and nice atmosphere. The terrace tables in summer are beautiful as you can see the change of color of the sky at sunset. Both meat and fish are good there. Recommendable.

Excellent food, service and setting. You will never be let down in this restaurant. Outstanding seafood and fish. The paellas are also very good and very filling. Must definitely make table reservation since it is always full- no matter which day and at which time.

Famous restaurant in Madrid with many branches spread around the city. The price is good but the service is too impersonal and almost fastfood like. Good meat and good wine!

Loved the food, atmosphere, service and of course the food... the grilled calamari starters and battered fried prawns were simply excellent

12 years between drinks with my friend and she chose here for our catch up. It was a gorgeous restaurant. The atmosphere was inviting and had a real buzz. The staff were attentive in a typical Spanish way (eg the bill took 30 minutes). We shared some starters (which were huge). The Gambas were just divine as was the cod... More

Great food, great location, great place to see and be seen. We saw more than one celebrity on the numerous visits we paid. Not inexpensive, but worth it. We ate Gamba Roja Especial which was very pricey - 100 Euros for a plate for 4 of us, but excellent. You cannot get that great fresh quality everywhere. The Bonito del... More

At least four times more expensive than any other restaurant we went to over the course of a week in Northern Spain, this did a fine Galician Lobster but was in other ways unremarkable. It probably rests on its proximity to Madrid. The staff were helpful enough and it has an upmarket feel. Customers resolutely puffed their way through post... More

While eating tapas at the barra in this restaurant is highly recommendable, there is still no comparison to the taberna environment in the old La Maquina entrance or the elegant ambience inside. I still recommend La Maquina de la Moraleja, you can move later to the Boutique for some drinks and finalize your informal and funny night.
