Great food, great location, great place to see and be seen. We saw more than one celebrity on the numerous visits we paid. Not inexpensive, but worth it. We ate Gamba Roja Especial which was very pricey - 100 Euros for a plate for 4 of us, but excellent. You cannot get that great fresh quality everywhere. The Bonito del... More

Traditional gallego sea food, good Spanish wine list, just 15 min from Paseo de la Castellana. Attentious service, surrounded by other top restaurants, superb atmosphere

At least four times more expensive than any other restaurant we went to over the course of a week in Northern Spain, this did a fine Galician Lobster but was in other ways unremarkable. It probably rests on its proximity to Madrid. The staff were helpful enough and it has an upmarket feel. Customers resolutely puffed their way through post... More

While eating tapas at the barra in this restaurant is highly recommendable, there is still no comparison to the taberna environment in the old La Maquina entrance or the elegant ambience inside. I still recommend La Maquina de la Moraleja, you can move later to the Boutique for some drinks and finalize your informal and funny night.

The restaurant have a nice menu focused on seafood and fish ( meat dishes as well). Been there 4 times the last year and have had great and quite bad experiences with the food (even the same dishes). When a place is this unstable in delivering an even quality there is usually something wrong in the kitchen. When it is... More

The food has a really good quality. Compared to other restaurants in La Moraleja with the same type of cuisine, is not that expensive. Go for the starters and for the fish, chose whatever and all will be good. The service is not the best because it looks like there are not enough waiters when the restaurant is full... Something...

Our latest visit was on Saturday night, we arrived without a reservation and were found a table near the bar.
