This place was recommended to us by our hotel staff and it was a good choice. The service was very good and the food was terrific. The portions were generous as well-my fried calamari appetizer was way more than one person could eat, and very good too! My husband and I both had veal chops with poblano peppers which were very nicely done. Definitely would recommend this restaurant!

We visited Casa Gallega on a Sunday; the place, centrally located, was crowded with local guests, until late in the afternoon. The food was simply superb; fish and seafood was tasty and well presented, and we could choose amongst a wide range of Galician specialities.
The place is clean and quite traditional, a jump back in the 70's, no fashionable design but you will feel at home, surrounded by joyful small groups of locals celebrating events.
The service was very efficient, the maitre himself advised with enthusiasm and patience the daily specialities (our Spanish is only basic).
Relatively expensive, but absolutely worth the experience.
Looking forward to coming back!

PS: The right address of Casa Gallega is Calle Bordadores, 11

My husband was looking for a restaurant that served "Bacalao ala Vizcaina", but we couldnt find one that had it in their menu. The front desk of our hotel called Casa Gallega and asked them if they were willing to make this dish specially for us. To my husband's delight, they agreed and cooked the dish to perfection. Now, that is what I call EXCELLENT SERVICE! The Bacalao and the other dishes we ordered were delicious! We will definitely go back to Casa Gallega when we return to Madrid.

Went here for a last night blow out meal and it did not disappoint. The octopus and hake were fantastic and the champagne sorbet for dessert was great too. Good service as well, which wasn't all that common in Madrid!
