Very old, established seafood restaurant in one of Madrid's flasher suburbs, the product doesn't quite match the promise.

We had dinner tonight at this amazing place, it was recommended by a colleague. We had ceviche, seafood and fish, all of our dishes were carefully prepared. The service is friendly and corteus. I recommend you to make reservations in advanced, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy!

We had high expectations from the many positive reviews which we sadly could not endorse. The garlic prawns were disappointing- too many, too oily and too much garlic. For main course one of us had coquilles st Jacques which had overcooked, inedible scallops. The other chose hake from Galicia which was tasteless. Very attentive service but one felt that we...

Like others who have reported on this site, we were sent by the concierge of our hotel and the restaurant is featured on our map. It was our only bad meal in Madrid and our only bad meal in Spain. We were led past the regulars to a side room. The decor is run down. Old timey can be quaint.... More

The subtitle of the restaurant business card says that it is "marisquieria", and the interior of the place reconfirms it by every detail from photos of the ships and boats on the wall till the old diver's bronze helmet or equally shining steering control from the old ship. The rich sea food menu, fresh and tasty fish dishes make this... More

This is not a cheap restaurant: fish, and particularly shellfish, is expensive. The decor is very old fashioned: ships wheels, binnacles and varnished wood. So what! The food is the thing and it is the very highest quality material cooked absolutely expertly. Some of my family were brought here as young kids by their Grandfather in the 60s who told... More

We were a bit scared by the decoration as it looks very touristic and is divided into many rooms but were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the fish. The lobster tails were excellent and can only recommend the plain way with homemade sauce. The atmosphere is not very pleasant and the service is a bit slow but the good... More

First the professional and courteous manner of the maitre d' and staff put a dazzle on the relaxed ambiance of one of the several small rooms that together make up the dining area. Then the recommended wine, a Vina Pomal Reserva Rioja, bright and dry, further confirmed the experience and training of the staff. Our party enjoyed percebes, pulpo, entrecote... More

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighborhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
