I give this restauran 2 because of the nice waiter. it was our first restaurant in Madrid, we were just walking and saw a ver nice place (it looks good on the outside). FIRST MISTAKE. Since we did not know how the food was at the place, we order some essentials from Spanish kitchen that a restaurant in the middle of Madrid just can't go wrong. SECOND MISTAKE we ordered jamón ibérico which it was in a plate full of olive oil which look more like a oil soup with some jam. If you wonder how to ruin something as easy as cutting a jam and put it in a plate, this is the right recipe. Next plate was Salmorejo taste like tomato from a can. Last but not least croquetas de jamón. Come on ! Texture was the same as a McDonald's hash brown. Can't tell about the rest of the menu but if you have a Spanish restaurant and can't manage this three dishes something is wrong. But again our waiter was very nice.

Thank Juan J

I had a lovely lunch here. Excellent atmosphere, great menu, slightly surly service. The salad with marinated vegetables and ham was excellent, as was the cod. Recommended.

We'd read and also been told that this place didn't take reservations and that you had to simply turn up and be prepared to queue/wait; however, since there were six of us to seat, one of whom needed a gluten-free menu - we gave booking a try - and succeeded. The menu was fabulous - great choice, imaginative dishes and fantastic prices - the wine list was similarly good value - we had a delicious white Rioja for a snip! The food was amazing - great quality and choice. We went here on a recommendation and wouldn't hesitate to pass that recommendation on.

We had our airbnb around the corner so we tried La Gloria de Montera. Well, now we know it was a mistake. The is a boring, nothing to write home about - tourist restaurant. You are in Madrid... go find a better place.

We didn't have any expectation about the restaurant. Just decided to take dinner one of the closes restaurants. The restaurant has good facilities and atmosphere. Waitress even spoke english.

We had three course dinner with a bottle of wine. Marinated tuna tasted odd for me, but all other dishes were either good or great. Prices are really cheap if they are related to quality.
