I have been several times to this restaurant offering good quality meals and service. Food is traditional with a highly recommended tortilla, one of the best I have tasted. The place is in my opinion more suited for business than other types of occasions.

The food is of good quality, but the portions are very small for the prices they charge. The main negative point of this restaurant is that the waiters are rude and arrogant towards the customers. We did not feel at ease during our dinner.

Went here whilst visiting a friend locally. We went for the Sunday lunch service without a reservation, which to be honest was a bit of a risk. We got lucky, but definitely best to make a reservation, this place was popular. With good reason in...More

La Penela is a Galician restaurant very close to the Plaza Castilla in Madrid. It is not a typical touristic restaurant and it is worth the time it takes to find it. We have been there several times and each one gets better. The specialities...More
