    Good restaurant for lunch and dinner. Becomes full quickly so book a table or be on time. Downside is that the restaurant in the evening opens at 08.30 pm.

    Nothing impressive, nice location, good price for lunch. A word for the woman in suit at the entrance - a smile won't hurt. I felt like I was not welcome and bringing extra work to her job. Other staff are cheerful and helpful. Will surely recommend it if not for the woman.

    We came here after reading about it in the Lonely Planet. While the food was ok and well-priced I wouldn't bother coming back as it was nothing special.

    Food was so-so. "Fish" tempura was not fish but a variety of seafood, cod gratinee with carmelized onions was extremely salty, and fish crepe was a mash. Overall, mediocre.

    The food has nothing special, but service and quality according to price was great. The place is big and comfortable, can get a bit crowd, but is worth a visit in case you are in a rush.

    We first dined at La Gloria in 2015 on the recommendation of the host at our hotel in Plaza El Centro in Madrid. We went back for all 3 evenings. Last week we returned to Madrid, same hotel, and were happy to sup again at La Gloria. The food and the hospitality were again excellent. Bonus, we were able to dine earlier than the customary 8PM or later. La Gloria is our go-to spot for dining. My personal fave is baby octopus, but haven't been disappointed on any visit.

    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.

    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.

    Our hotel recommended this restaurant, great choice. We shared a mixed tapa appetizer, paella, and steak kabobs with veg. A nice bottle of wine, perfect, priced right. Bring on the EDP Madrid Rock n Roll Marathon.

    Reading the menu I expected more Spanish typical food. However "bravas" were not such but potatoes with tomatoe and white sauce, octopus was served with smashed potatoes (it is usually served with thick sliced potatoes)... Main dishes were, however, good. Noisy place when half-full. Average service quality. Unless someone tells me it has chaned a lot and improved, I think I won't come back or recommend it.

    Been here a while ago with friends. In Madrid for work. And the Picasso ex so went for lunch. Menu del Dia was fabulous value. I felt I needed a good meal. And got one. All was well presented. The service was superb. Very enjoyable indeed. And highly recommended. Would prefer more choice for veggies. Spain has superb vegetables.

    We were walking around Mayor Square and need a place to rest our feet. This place is more crowded than others so we decided to give it a try. The draft beer in the picture was a big one. It hit the spot. Chicken club sandwich and pizza are also good.

    The restaurant is hidden in a side street, but is well worth discovering. It is popular, with a very economical lunchtime menu on working days. If you go at the weekend, make sure that you are there before 2pm because at that time the tables fill suddenly. What makes this restaurant so attractive? Basically you get fast, efficient service, attractively presented and interesting food, beautifully cooked, in pleasant surroundings at a price that, more Madrid, is remarkably cheap. We had three courses each - admittedly without wine - for 50€. The duck magret was beautifully cooked and presented with apple sauce. The avocado salad first course was interesting and the selection of desserts excellent. My wife ordered eggplant and then baby fried squid (chipirones) and was rewarded with a large plate, piled high with baby squid. What most surprised us was that, although the restaurant was filling rapidly, the service was very fast and attentive.

    Very tasty food with great service and great prices! Must try if you are around! Tried the paella mixta and fried calamari. Both were great and enough to share.

    We came across this restaurant by chance. There is a varied menu and the quality of food is excellent. The staff are welcoming, helpful and attentive without being over powering. If you want an affordable good quality meal with ample portions this is the place to visit.

    We went there 3 times in 4 days - absolutely loved it! Don't skip dessert: Chocolatíssimo is as remarkable as Madrid sightseeings. I strongly recommend Patatas bravas and Bacalao.

    The decor of Andilana restaurants will lure you in, but it's the quality of the food that will sustain its success. One of my reliable "go to" haunts in Madrid, recent experience was disappointing and poor. Ordered the striploin/beef with pepper sauce and emphatically asked for it well done and "no pink". Entree arrived within minutes - a raw, rear slab of fatty meat. Sent it back which is a rarity for me, and replaced with a filet and foie mille feuille. Tasty enough, but ice cold on the inside. Biggest issue with restaurants in Madrid and Barcelona is that in recent times the food appears to be pre-cooked and microwaved, judged by the time in which it arrives. The salvation was dessert and the extensive and reasonable wine list, but will say no gracias to future visits to Gloria.
