Came in and there were no tables available. Smiling waiters brought a new table for us and the service was brilliant. Excellent drinks and a gorgeous view - what more could you want?

Great place with exceptional service! Our seats were stolen from us before our eyes but the manager whipped out a new table and brought it to the best place in an instant! Well done! Really nice drinks and "nibbly bits"!

Were referred here by the concierge at our hotel, and the first question we got when we arrived at La Lonja was which hotel were we staying at. That pretty much says this is a place for tourists. It overlooks the royal palace so the view is pleasant but the area is not busy at night. It’s still only a short walk from the Gran Via, perhaps ten minutes at most. There is very fresh seafood, which they bring to your table to let you select, and show that it’s alive. BE VERY CAREFUL if you choose to go this route because it’s sold by weight, and the prices are per 100 grams, something Americans usually have little experience in gauging. The large full lobster would come out to somewhere between $350 - $400. We chose the prix fixe two course menu, which was reasonable but added one glass of white wine, the bread and a bottle of water, and two fresh grilled prawns. The total was about 145 euros for a very average meal. The service was very good, but the food overly salty and unremarkable. The bonus was the gentleman who played the electric piano and sang the whole time. He made it a much better dinner experience, thank goodness.

My son and I ate dinner here tonight, Sept. 22, expecting it to be great because of a Michelin mention. First off, they didn't have scallops which is strange for a seafood restaurant. The only mussels dish was salty, and the monkfish was rubbery. The waiter was not even within sight, even though there were only about 5 customers. Over-priced and touristy.

Plaza de Oriente is an excellent location to dine, but it is also very easy to get trapped in a touristic restaurant...La Lonja indeed is an exception. Restaurant is beautifully decorated and the view on Royal Palace is breath taking. Menu is made of typical Spanish tapas enriched by some specialties which are not always easy to find. Same goes with wine list, of course made by many robust reds from Rioja. Service is up to expectation also. Recommended, no doubt.
