“Relatively Good”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

Two of us dined, a, fresh appetiser served gratis like a tapa and the bread was accepted so that we could sop up the delicious soup marinara as an entree. A half bottle of Merluza de Pincho at 24.50 Euros was great with both the main courses, Pimentos Piquillo nicely presented, and Hake simply grilled. The vegetables could use a makeover as they lacked freshness, texture and taste, but seem to be a standard offering in most of the restaurants we have visited in our month in Spain, both bodegas and higher quality venues. We had bottled water and shared two desserts. The Crema Catalana came as a huge portion and tasted great but seemed to have curdled or separated in some way so the texture on that night was not great. The Crepes were filled with a chocolate mixture and slightly crispy, a little like an Italian Cannoli, not sure if this was intentional or not. The bill came to 109.00 Euros in total for two and not as horrendous a price as some have said. Located on the first floor (they also have some tables at street level) just off Placa del Calleao the room was quite elegant in a modern conservative style. The wait staff were attentive, one heard singing to the back ground music, told off, but amusing just the same. Overall a good experience.

“Nothing Special, And Pricey”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Las Tres Encinas is an inferior tourist trap just off the Gran Via in central Madrid. Their shellfish selection is good, and their fish dishes are ok, but the shellfish is all priced by weight, and they encourage you to order expensive dishes. Furthermore, the service is dispirited - you get the impression that they want you to finish quickly so they can clean up and go home.
There are good options in this sector of Madrid. I recommend avoiding this one.

“Not worth it”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

Service was mixed, the atmosphere cool (restaurant was empty) and the seafood's quality did not at all correspond to the price! 470€ for 4 persons.
Avoid, it is really a tourist trap.
