Went here on a weeknight. It was packed, but we got a table right away. This place is a tourist mecca so it's super crowded and noisy.
That being said, Goya ate here. It may be the oldest continually operating restaurant in the world. It's pretty gorgeous.
The service was fine. We went for the house specialties, the roasted pork and the roasted lamb. They arrive at your table in sizzling terracotta dishes (maybe also from the 18th century) and the waiter serves you from them. They were both exquisite. Real fatty, comfort food, bursting with flavor. Tender, juicy meat. If I had to pick one I would definitely go with the pork. If you go here don't waste your time getting dishes you can get in any other places, just go for the roast!!
