Location spot on, food was ok

Nothing particularly negative here, location was stunning, picked a table that overlooked the river. Food was edible (although nothing special) as we all opted for the entrecote steak... came as huge slices of steak, cooked 'blue' so they were raw inside. It wasn't that the service was bad either... read more

We spent one day in Aranjuez and searched lunch restaurant. El Rana Verde looked outside little bit worn out but inside all was fine. Table and terrace overlooking the river and carefully prepared salads. Local people having lunch too. Friendly service.

We came into the restaurant because of the quantity of writers, who used to meet in the place in the past. The area is ok and the restaurant is nicely decorated. Food was just ok, wine excellent as well as the service.

We stopped at El Rana Verde for a much needed soft drink, but much impressed by the very helpful and friendly staff we had a quick look at the menu and decided to dine there that evening. This proved a good decision, so much so that we dined there again the following night! Excellent mushrooms, Burgos black pudding and frogs... More

We had a wonderful 2 hour lunch - menu of the day - which included wine, beer or a soft drink. The food was very good, the staff friendly and the location superb - we ate on a riverside balcony. Given the quality of the food and wonderful location the price was reasonable indeed.

Large typical Spanish restaurant/bar. Large pleasant terrace to the side, overlooking the river. Worth a stop when visiting the Palace.

La Rana Verde is next to the river and many tables are on an outside terrace literally at the edge of the river. A very romantic,picturesque setting. The service was friendly and quick. The waiter spoke at least, English, French and Spanish. There was a wide choice of food and wine and was delicious and reasonably priced. La Rana Verde... More

We were the lone diners here on a quiet January evening, but we noted that the restaurant had been busy at lunchtime so gave it a go. The food was good and pleasantly served by a friendy waiter whose wine recommendation also went down well.

Husband & I had lunch here. Arrived at 2pm...just starting to get busy. It was packed by 2:30. The waitress showed us to a table. Our waiter brought us menus (in Spanish) and gave us time to review (since we needed to decipher it). We both opted for the Menu del Dia for 15 euro, since that seemed the best... More

My husband and I stayed in Aranjuez for 8 nights in early September. We were camping and on a budget so I mostly cooked for ourselves at the campsite. On our last afternoon we decided to treat oursleves to lunch at El Rana Verde. The location is stunning! The interior beautiful and very clean. We had been "touted" a few... More
