Visiting Spain again, now a year later, we looked very much forward to dining at Ventas. Took a cab from Madrid city center to come out to this wonderful, local restaurant and again we weren't disappointed! It is a family-run business and the same servers welcomed us back. It felt like home. The sangria, the decor and the delicious homemade bread (we dipped in olive oil and salt and pepper) were a good way to enjoy the experience while awaiting our order. We had to force ourselves to stop eating the bread so that we could have room for the food! The food comes out quickly and is beautiful. The Dourada, the red mullet, and the lamb chops were all divine. The large, fresh, fried calamari are the best, along with the huge, sweet, green asparagus grilled in sea salt and olive oil. We were treated to a chocolate (like Bailey's) and a lemon aperitif to help digest this amazing meal. A true, local experience.

The food was just like your grandmother would cook. The artichokes are great and the stewed meat was tender and a bit spicy.
This more like a museum than a restaurant and it's amazing. There is bull fighting photos, costumes and mounted toros-bull heads on the wall.
There is a bar in the front area and the restaurant is in the back.
It was closed on Tuesday.

One day I saw a lot of people in this restaurant so next day I tried to eat there. I ordered Dorado fish, squid and white vine. Fish was very dry, squids were the same as everywhere and vine was okay. For this pleasure I had to pay around 30 eur it was not worth it in my opinion. Of course interior shows that this place has a history.

Thrilled we found this wonderful restaurant during our stay (enrolling daughter for her semester abroad) in Madrid/Getafe, Spain! Can't say enough about how delicious, fresh and reasonably priced the food was, along with the generous portions and cozy, family oriented feeling we experienced in this restaurant! The Tapas area was constantly FULL of people, especially on soccer game nights. This restaurant is tied for the #1 spot in Getafe in our opinion! The ultra fresh, lightly dusted with flour Calamari rings (they were HUGE!) will alone make you come back for more (we dined there 3 times during our 2 week stay!). The Dorata with a roasted red pepper sauce on top were exquisite! We ordered the asparagus revuelto and then again the asparagus with rock salt/olive oil that were absolutely the largest, freshest, sweetest asparagus we've ever tasted! Don't even get me started on the pork chops! Wash it all down with a tasty sangria and you've experienced one of the best meals around!
