Obviously much changed since last time (!) it is more modern. Still very busy and not large (book!). Plenty of fresh fish on display including those €90/kg red prawns and non-pc baby eels (€45 a portion) so can can eat exotically at a cost. We were more modest and enjoyed more traditional dishes such as squid in black ink, grilled... More

This is THE seafood restaurant in Madrid where my wife and I enjoyed a superb lunch.The food is very fresh and the service is impeccable.I disagree with other reviewers who say that the prices are high. For this quality of food and service the prices are reasonable.

It's one of my favourite restaurants in Madrid and certainly THE fish & seafood restaurant. Fun ambiance, great service and most importantly great food! The rodaballo was the best I ever had. Start with one of the numerous starters, accompanied by pan de cristal, before enjoying one of the many great fishes they have on the menu. My favourite is... More

The tuna tartare was excellent, probably the best I've had. Grouper and sole were also good. Would be nice if a waiter or two spoke English in the restaurant. Very affordable wines.

Another reviewer has said that this place is "quite expensive," and I am sure it can be. Three of us had an excellent dinner there for 135 Euros, including three appetizers, a turbot for three, a dessert, bottled water, and a fine bottle of rosé wine that cost all of 10.50 Euros. More food than we could eat. That is... More

Extreme quality of fish and seafood, very well prepared and served, nice seating and environment. Fast service for those who like to be served quickly. Staff rather neutral in the approach, do what they have to but not more. Watch out with ordering seafood by weight (as mentioned on the menu), it is absolutely top quality, incredible really BUT astonishing... More

I come to this restaurant often. In my view, this restaurant (along with its sister restaurant O'Pazo) is the best seafood restaurant in Madrid. The highest quality and freshest seafood. Honest and excellent service. I stress the importance of honesty as there are many seafood restaurants that trick clients into the most expensive options. This has never happened to me... More

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
