We ate brunch at La Gamella and thoroughly enjoyed our brunch. La Gamella offer a varied menu and are happy to amend dishes to accommodate vegetarians. Despite the quality of food, the service was the highlight of our experience. We would very much recommend La Gamella and would undoubtedly eat there again if visiting Madrid.

This is a small chef restaurant near the Retiro park, that serves very good spanish food fairly priced, especially at lunch. Be sure to check opening hours on the Net. Service is also very good.

We walked from our hotel and was able to get a table without a reservation. Theresa was a great hostess. Bison and Bonita fish were our choices. Excellent dinner. Normally would pass on desert but had to try the white chocolate soup. Delicious. Great ambience. We will repeat for sure

Very nice place, friendly staff. The food was good - very well cooked and nicely served. They also have a special offer for a 3 courses dinner for just €27.95. After 2 starters - carpachoo and Russian salad, and two main courses - scallops and chicken breast that were both perfectly cooked, we were so full that we shared the... More

One of the first restaurants I've visited when I first moved to Madrid in 2010. It's my go to restaurant when you want a good meal served with a friendly smile. In a city where good customer service is inconsistent, the owner Theresa, prides herself on taking care of her customers. Sunday Brunch is my favorite. Great selection of meal... More

A foreigner traveling in Madrid has many choices for dining, and generally will find menus and service easy to navigate. La Gamella provided this - and more. Truly a warm and inviting atmosphere, with food that make it impossible not to savor. Service tops, reasonable pricing. Rare to get lost in a time warp while dining and wonder where the... More

Located opposite Retiro Park, near Hotel Alfonso Petit Palace, this hotel was excellently located for our stay in Madrid. The food was very good and the three course deal was extremely good value for money. I ordered the Croquette assorted which consisted of cheese and ham, mushroom and squid. I'm not a big fish lover and have never tried squid... More

La Gamella is conveniently located across from Buen Retiro Park, a few blocks from the Prado Museum to the south, and chic shopping to the north. This restaurant is charming and has something of a French bistro ambience blended with a flair of American quality and efficiency, which is no surprise as it is owned by Americans. The steak tartare... More

Staying in Paseo del Prado

Neighbourhood Profile
Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
