The place recently changed hands and I was glad to see that they had kept their good food and good service. You can eat either inside or out in the plaza or in one of the outside balconies overlooking the plaza. It is a relaxing and very pleasant thing to do. Their tapas are simple and delicious and their prices... More

We broke our usual rule of not eating in town squares as this place came recommended, but unfortunately the food was well below average, and that's not considering the cost. The gazpacho was watery and the salad had too much vinegar even for Spain and not enough oil. We order huevos rotos for the kids and the serving was very... More

We were the only diners on a chilly Saturday evening in April. My steak was tasty but not a filet as described. My other half chose rabo de toro, but it was not up to the standard of other rstaurants. When we arrived the waiting staff were smoking inside the restaurant.

The best thing about La Virreyna is the view! It's worth paying for in itself, but get a table with a view. The best are on the first floor or above, either by a window, or if it's not too hot a day one on an outside balcony. for the view across the plaza to the church opposite. The menu... More

Every time we have guests staying with us in Madrid, or often when we feel like an outing, we go to Chinchón, and so far every time we have eaten at Mesón Virreyna. Always been good. In summer (if not too hot) you will defintely want to sit on the balcony overlooking the plaza - makes a whole different experience.... More

We had to have lunch on one of the balconies and this looked the most popular place. On our way up the stairs we passed the plancha, the barbecue grill, and just had to have something that tasted as good as that we had just smelled. The most delicious steak and chips at 4pm, what was I thinking of?! And... More
