Description: Founded in 1962 and after a deep renovation it keeps the charm of the typical spanish restaurant "Venta". La Mi Venta is a restaurant dedicated to the elaboration of a tasty traditional and homemade cuisine, were the quality of the product is the main objective. Our speciality is the pure iberian acorn, the typical spanish stews and of course the grilled meats. Outstanding selection of wines, in a refrigerated cellar and homemade desserts. We have several lounges with different atmospheres, from the typical bar of "Meson", to the original cave of the house made of bricks, terrace or the "pecking" room.

Upon arrival to the restaurant, we were told that they need the table in two hours for another party. We were seated in a dark corner - more light would enhance the dining experience as the colours of the food are important part of the meal.
The appetizer menu is about dishes which can be prepared beforehand - mostly cold cuts like iberian ham.
Main courses are simple and quickly prepared: steaks with simple side dishes.
Overall, dont expect delicious sauces or innovative kitchen - this is a fast service, fast turnround place in american style.

Great place to visit. Tasty food, very friendly staff and owner! Food came pretty quick except the rice seafood platter which takes a bit longer. Also if you’re from the USA order the steak well or med-well because Europe tends to cook on the more red side.

From the first moment when you walk in, and you are warmly greeted, to the moment you leave feeling like a friend or family member, this experience is one to remember. We didn't have reservations, on a Saturday evening at 9pm (pretty silly on our behalf) but the owner almost seemed apologetic that we had to wait to be seated. Within 2 minutes of entering, we had a small soup to warm us and whet our appetite. Drinks ordered, and olives came next. Remember, this is all before we leave bar area. The ambiance is lovely, the staff really attentive and friendly. We ordered some tapas to start, manchego cheese, Chorizo, Jamon and migas, all were wonderful. I specifically want to mention the Chorizo infierno as it was amazing. For main course, we shared Entrecote grilled on charcoal. Possibly one of the best I have had in my 43 years. If a better all round restaurant exists in Madrid, I'd love to know. It's only situated about 100metres from the royal palace. Don't be silly like us, make a booking ( you might be able to get seated in the cellar!) I highly recommend this place. The owner,and our waitress Noria deserve special mention.
