Con vistas al Palacio de Oriente, este restaurante compite con su vecino el Teatro Real en emocionar. En lugar de óperas, lo hace con mariscos y pescados. Y el marco acompaña: las mesas están dispuestas en comedores decorados con azulejos de mosaico en las paredes y lámparas de diseño. Pero lo más importante está en el plato. Aquí se trabaja con el mejor producto posible en una carta salina y refrescante.

Todos los mariscos vienen con el pasaporte sellado: la gamba blanca llega desde Palamós y la gamba roja, fresca, de Dénia. La ostra proviene de Castropol, en el Occidente asturiano y la almeja fina, de Galicia. Además de este producto deslumbrante, hay cocina en recetas poco habituales de ver como el congrio a la brasa con gelée de verduras, caldo de almendra y hierbas aromáticas. Hay más sorpresas entre las elecciones de pescados, como ocurre con el rape negro o el esturión siberiano. Ojo con las propuestas de mar adentro porque hay cosas interesantes como el faisán estofado a la toledana o el rabo de toro estofado a la antigua. Mar y montaña, juntos pero no revueltos.

En la planta de debajo de La Lonja del Mar hay un raw bar a pie de barra que cuenta con un gran atractivo: hacen sus propio ahumados.

    I will never ever go back to such petty restaurant. Looks elegant and puts effort to spectacularly present the non tasteful food - so I would never expect that they will charge for the dry bread with butter that was on the table when we arrived. In other restaurants they provide several small and tasty bites for free! My friend ordered Loritos fish and they have brought only the bones of the fish!! On the positive side I mention that when we complained for the fish, they put some more on the original dish. Overall, the food was not tasty, the service was reallly slow, and they were not fair. There are sooo many good restaurants around, I recommend to choose another one.

    Restaurant was in a good location, had a great ambience and staff greeted me by name when I arrived. Service attentive and fast throughout, seafood really incredible (try the octopus!) and great details like the taster before my starter and the dessert sample with my tea. Would love to come back

    Food is nothing special and for this price it is overpriced. For desert the are bring us two little cookies as a compliment, because I don’t ask and changed us 5 euro. Waiting for everything to long.

    Had an amazing over the cena tonight with a great view of the palace. (Note - this is for the inside formal menu - not the outside café menu). Started with a tomato burrata salad (which doesn’t sound Spanish but had carpaccio of valenciano tomatoes that were perfect ) and then shrimp ala plancha. the giant red prawns in champagne sauce with fried garlic was perfect (best dish). Baccalo pil pil was very good. Finished with Torrijas which was good and accompanied by helado de Cabral which was Awesome. Great meal and excellent attentive service. Gracias

    First night in Madrid and we were kucjy to find this place. Great location near Opera. We weren’t in the main, more expensive restaurant but chose the more relaxed cafe-bar downstairs. Extensive menu and we received really good and friendly service which made for a very enjoyable evening.

    Best seafood dinner in Madrid. Amazing service, menu selection, and ambiance. Mussels cooked in champagne was delicious. The strawberry flambé desert is a must. 100% romantic restaurant for couples or a lovely place for family or friends. Highly recommended. We will be back.
