Varied seafood options well prepared. Octopus and Calamari stand out. Fish is very fresh; jamon of very good quality, and the wine list is varied and reasonably priced. Attached Wine Store provides options for vinophiles.

This is a fish speciality restaurant. From the moment we entered the staff were very friendly and very attentive. We were even intriduced to the chef who came to our table to say hello. The food was quite excellent, but if you are looking for a cheap meal this is not the place. Worth as visty is a special treat

I asked the concierge where I could get a grilled lobster well we got that and much more. Our waiter (s) were fine and attentive. The Bartender could have been a bit friendlier but maybe it was me.

Variety of seafood dishes as an appetizer or as a main. Not particularely my cup of tea. Pricey but not tasty. Service fair but not great! Too many better choices out there. To be fair just three stars! Could improve! Could give it one more chance!

The decor inside is 'interesting' in that it looks like the inside of an old ship - a little gaudy but gives a strong message that this restaurant specialise in fish (although meat dishes are available) We had monkfish and sea bass and they were both superb. Will definitely be going back!

A large, formal and fairly expensive fish restaurant. Some of the food looked amazing - although sadly I managed to order the hake which came lightly battered with thin strips of crisps and a very nice (but small) pile of red peppers. It looked more like a child's meal.

Nice restaurant with fantastic seafood, probably the best seafood in madrid. High price but in line with quality. The fish is also first class.

First off - if you don't like seafood go elsewhere as the menu is very strong in that and the neighbourhood has plenty of other restaurants. Secondly - food is genuinely good but boy are they rude! And you pay a lot for what you get too. Also: it's done up like the interior of a ship. Portholes, ship's wheel,... More

Set in towards the North of the City, this is a fabulous restaurant with a nautical theme. The fish is outstanding but others commented on the quality of the meat also.
