A good lunch spot in a quiet shopping area. Good variety of dishes from various different areas of Spain. Fair few fish dishes as well, which was a big positive for a pesco-vegetarian like me in Spain. Usually struggle so this was refreshing - actually spoiled for choice. The dishes we had in our party were all delicious and nicely... More

One more of the restaurants with tne name La Maquina. Probably the one more elegant, which is located in the main entrance to La Moraleja. Superb terrace as well as indoor restaurant. Perhaps so wellknown that is a bit crowded. Fine cuisine. Prices a bit high, in line what should be expected in that part of the city.

Very disappointing experience at this renowned restaurant as one of our dishes was so poorly prepared that we had to return it. This alone ruined the experience that should not really take place in an establishment of this category.

Good quality food. Crowded, but the waiters a little bit rude. Salad was good. Hake was excellent, squid was ok. Well served and presented.

During my visit for business to Madrid, I was invited to a dinner in this restaurant, the meals was very good, I choose fish; the taste was excellent and the ambiance was very good and respectful.

We have visited there several times, and enjoyed good food and nice atmosphere. The terrace tables in summer are beautiful as you can see the change of color of the sky at sunset. Both meat and fish are good there. Recommendable.

Excellent food, service and setting. You will never be let down in this restaurant. Outstanding seafood and fish. The paellas are also very good and very filling. Must definitely make table reservation since it is always full- no matter which day and at which time.

Famous restaurant in Madrid with many branches spread around the city. The price is good but the service is too impersonal and almost fastfood like. Good meat and good wine!

12 years between drinks with my friend and she chose here for our catch up. It was a gorgeous restaurant. The atmosphere was inviting and had a real buzz. The staff were attentive in a typical Spanish way (eg the bill took 30 minutes). We shared some starters (which were huge). The Gambas were just divine as was the cod... More
