we are fair regulars at el trasgu. not only does it have one of the best views and terraces in the sierra, the food is pretty darn good too. Marta, and her parents do a wonderful job of taking care of the client. Delicious are the erizos-sea urchin, ensaladilla rusa, any of the rice dishes. Great wine and dessert menu,... More

The quality of the food is medium and the prices are a little bit expensive, but Oh Boy! what views of Madrid landscape. Probably the best anywhere in Madrid surroundings. Clearly, you have to go in summer for the views and enjoy both the dinner and the after dinner drink in the terrace. It is wonderful.

Firstly it took them more than two days to confirm a reservation request. This is supposed to be an elegant restaurant. On arrival, in cold January, no-one offered to take our coats so we had to put them on our chairs. The waiting staff were poorly trained. One waitress came to our table dressed more for a rock concert than... More

I have gone to this restaurant several times and it never disappoints ! The place itself is beautiful with some nice views of Madrid and the food is delicious. Especially Recommend the tuna tataki and the ham croquetas. I don't give a 5 stars because some dishes weren't that great in my opinion (e.g. Ensaladilla rusa: good taste but didn't... More

The day that we were visiting they were doing a special offering of galician ox meat, and we asked for some, which was the most tender thing i have ever tried. Other of my friends asked for... More

Great environment, stunning rooftop with breathtaking views but above all this, truly great service and amazing food. Eduardo does a fantastic job running the place as the maitre, proffesional, stylish and involved he's a pleasure to treat with. Many dishes deserve to be mentioned here but if we were to choose one, withouth any doubt that'd be the TORTILLA de... More

We didn't eat at El Trasgu but instead just had drinks. We were in town for a friend's wedding and hadn't booked an area but they happily accommodated around 25 of us. You don't get the incredible views over Madrid in the drinks area like you do in the restaurant area but it was nice for us all to be... More

I came back to this restaurant after 3 years, and I have to say I was, again, delighted. The waiters are always smiling and try to make your meal as pleasant as possible, and the maître is giving you tips on the fresher and latest seafood arrivals. On the top of this, during spring, the terrace offers one of the... More

Hidden up behind the hospital, this restaurant is a gem. Recommended by friends, we decided to go here on a celebration evening. Inside the restaurant are small areas that can be curtained off. We ate accompanied by swimming sea horses and jelly fish in circular window tanks. The table had been tastefully set with candles and flowers. The food was... More
