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 seem a real ensaladilla )
Service is excellent

Really nice restaurant slightly outside Madrid.

Food its really nice, very wide variety of plates, but all very special amd super raw materials. 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 some fish and duck and was very nice. Very original starters and nice wine list. Very professional staff, great if you need any recomendation.

The place its also nicely decorated, with chimenea for the winter and a lovely terrace with views of madrid in summer. They have a room where they put all families with kids, which is good so you domt bother others and feel more relaxed. If you have kids sometimes you have to avoid nice restaurants and this is not the case

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 trufa ('caprichosa')... Flagship of the typ spanish dishes is by no meand easy to cook. Eduardo's team cook it to perfection!! There's possibly no better tortilla to be found in Madrid. Definitely. Great place, great experience, not to be missed. And you'll keep coming back!

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 together.
This is NOT a cheap bar at approx €15 a gin and tonic if is an expensive evening but the gin and tonics are amazing - served in huge glasses with berries.
The only slightly annoying thing was that we were told to be quiet from around 10pm as it must be a residential area and really we weren't being particularly loud - but if you want somewhere special for a nice occasion - this is the place to go!
