If you go here you nut order the beef special for 2 people, truly delicious! Avoid the lamb chops. House red was excellent. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and unique setting. Would go back.

We were recommended this restaurant by a client of my husband who has a sister living in Madrid. Looking at the reviews on Trip Advisor they were really good and thought we would give it a go. We read that it is a very Spanish local restaurant and not much English is spoken. Which...is true! Already on our table when... More

Typical Spanish restaurant, excellent food and service. I loved it and highly recommend it. They have food for all tastes and the Spanish traditional dishes are superb.

Easily the best restaurant in Madrid. Since you arrive and eat the bread with tomato sauce or the tomato carpaccio you will see why they are different then any other restaurant in Miami. The owner Angel and his son are very polite and so friendly that is a great plus. I recommend this restaurant for everyone that wants to eat... More

The people really do their best effort to help you get the food you want to eat and it's the place where the royalty, football players, artists and everyone goes for the best Huevos Rotos in town.

Spanish type of food with great ambience and service! Angel personally oversees the restaurant and makes every customer feel at home. Try anything Angel or his staff suggests, you will never go wrong specially if you pair it with the house or any other spanish wine!! I always make a stop there even if I am in Madrid for the...

El Landó does not need recommendations, it has been, for over twenty years one of the favourite restaurants in town. The pictures of hundreds of famous filmstars and other worldwide personalities hang in the entrance.

My husband and I were on vacation in Madrid. El Lando was recommended. It is a MUST! Restaurant picks up speed at 9/9:30pm. There are roughly 10-15 tables. Reservations are recommended. Walls are covered with photos of celebrities. Lando was greeting, taking orders, busing tables. Food is served in abundance. We didn't even look at the menu, we just asked... More

Excellent meal, extremely good value and a fantastic atmosphere. Daughter is lactose intolerant and El Lando were absolutely excellent in ensuring that she chose something suitable for her. The food was absolutely stunning, amongst the best steak I have ever eaten. Staff were warm and friendly, they recommended good but not expensive wine to go with the dinner. Excellent on... More
