We spent the afternoon in Chinchon with our daughter showing her the places we visited back in the day. We had a wonderful dinner of lamb and steak; the food was delicious. I would really recommend this restaurant.

La Balconada literally lives up to its name. If you are lucky you can get a table on the balcony that looks down on to the main square. When we visited the square has just been used for a local bull fighting event - including a bull run through the local streets leading up to the square. Back to the... More

Had well catered and serviced pre wedding buffet here. Great ambiance, food and wines. Service very good and quick. Selection of Buffett suited everyone, vegetarians and meat eaters were all happy. A few of us (12) visited again 2 days later, impromptu and were quickly seated and served with a very good meal. Recommend the black sausage and chorizo/fried eggs/pepper... More

Overlooked cochinillo! Good service, attractive venue, food mediocre. The place has strong scores but I have found much better alternatives.

We did not get our 20% off the bill, even if we brougt our iPad stating that we were entiteled to it when we booked in advance on the Internet. They claimed that they "had stopped" giving the discount! ... Apart from that, the food was very good, so was also the wine and the service. Happy to return, without... More

We hadn't been to this restaurant for a while and I'm afraid the food has changed quite a bit. The waiter was excellent and my husband liked his steak but the rest was fairly average.

Small town not touristic but nice and near Madrid. Very nice place with good and typical food. Start with fresh "jamon" Deserts delicious. City and restaurant to visit is my recommendation
