“Good Food and Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

This restaurant is located in a quiet place.
The food is great and the service very special.
The wine options are exquisite and the price tag expensive.
The overall result is a big smile. Beware ot the hot chocolate cake, it is addictive!

“Needs improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

I had lunch with friends one week and went back for dinner the following week. It was crowded at lunch time but the food and service were satisfactory. However, my opinion changed when I went back for dinner. The menu appeared very limited especially regarding the starters (thankfully there was a separate page with the fish dishes) and service was quite inconsistent. In spite of not being crowded, we had to wait a long time for them to take our order and during the meal had to attract waiters' attention several times for water and wine to be served. Restaurant is in a prime location and needs to raise its game to compete with the surrounding restaurants.

“Very good for a business lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant has a nice patio outside which is quiet and very good for business lunches. Had a very good tartare made in front of me to my requirements. Service was very good and as we were in a hurry also very fast on our request. Recommended. Not sure about the price as I did not pay for it.

“Excellent place to have tapas or a full meal with friends or business associates.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

This restaurant is located in La Moraleja, one of the most expensive areas in Madrid.
The food is good and so is the service, however as everything in life the price is in the upper range especially if you have alcoholic beverages.
Good ambience! I have always enjoyed this restaurant and more so in summer.

“The best restaurant in La Moraleja (and in Alcobendas)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011

Aspen is a wonderful restaurant that provides excellent service to the community. Dishes are well prepared and delicious, service is excellent, and the kitchen is open from 2pm to late. For foreign guests, Aspen is the perfect place for a very nice meal. Black rice, vermut risotto and merluza are wonderful dishes. The tarte tatin should never be missed and service is unusually good.
