The food was okay but nothing special, but the service and the atmosphere were the worst I've seen in a long while. Would definitely suggest to skip this one!

For me the best local restaurant in Madrid. Been there more than 10 times. Always when brought friends, they loved it. I highly recommend a dinner there.

We booked for Sunday lunch at El Lando and enjoyed our meal it is best to call ahead rather than drop in as it is a popular restaurant. The food is traditional, fresh and delicious. It isn't fussy which I love but if you want something more interesting rather than straightforward but wonderful perhaps go elsewhere. We had sliced tomatoes... More

This is a traditional Spanish restaurant that shines because of their food and service. When you sit at your table you are treated to some delicious tomatoes and bread to get your palette started. The house wine was a very nice rioja wine which was enjoyed by all. Me and my wife are vegan and we had some wonderful setas... More

Lovely managed by Angel and his team, el lando is the best dpanish restaurant I know. Exquisite servce and elegant but basic dishes. My alltime favorite are the huevos con patatas. I have absolutely everytjing they have on the table: tomatos, pan tumaca, jamon serrano and maridaje with their wine Contino. Have an arroz con leche for dessert.

While this restaurant may not be to all tastes, we found it to be true "old school" classic Madrid cuisine. We shared a plate of tomatoe salad and the tomatoes were sweet & flavorful. The Bellota ham was excellent. Our entrees of roast pork and sea bass were prepared perfectly. It was all topped off with an absolutely spectacular almond... More

This place usually is a safe bet. You probably won't have the best meal of your life here; but a good meal for sure. Classic dishes classically prepared.

If you go here you nut order the beef special for 2 people, truly delicious! Avoid the lamb chops. House red was excellent. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and unique setting. Would go back.

We were recommended this restaurant by a client of my husband who has a sister living in Madrid. Looking at the reviews on Trip Advisor they were really good and thought we would give it a go. We read that it is a very Spanish local restaurant and not much English is spoken. Which...is true! Already on our table when... More
