The seafood are very fresh, and cooking skills very good. The carabineros and razor clams are grilled at the right timing. And the carabineros are top quality ones. Will definitely go again!

Very much enjoyed the tomato tartare with avocados and arugula as well as rice with shellfish! Nice atmosphere and reasonably attentive staff!

Excelente restaurante, tiene una carta amplia. El ambiente es bonito, agradable. Fuimos a cenar, y nos quedamos unas tres horas, sin que nadie nos importunara por el tiempo. El camarero que nos atendió estaba un poco apresurado a principio, parecía agobiado, pero después fue todo normal.

This was recommended by our hotel and was our least favorite restaurant during our time in Madrid. It was over priced mediocre food with nothing at all that makes me want to come back. We will not me returning in the future.

Non existent service, mediocre and overpriced food. We had to call the waiter repeatedly and were never asked how the meal was going. One of our dishes was inedible due to too much fat. The meal was expensive for the low quality of the food and overall lack of care and interest in the customer experience. I regret dining here!

V disappointing restaurant. Several items on the menu were unavailable, main courses were not a described & fish was bland & under-seasoned. Compared to other restaurants we visited the staff were not friendly or helpful. I would not recommend this as a fish restaurant.

Our group ate at this restaurant twice. The first time, the service and food were first rate, which is why we went back a second time several weeks later. This time, however, the service was sub-par. Some drinks were served, others were brought to the table significantly later, or not at all. Same with the dishes....one dish would come to the table, while others waited for at least 20 minutes to get theirs. A dish not ordered appeared as well. We were quite disappointed after the first time that we went there.

We a very mixed experience. We ordered the almejas (clams) to start, which were large and succulent. My wife ordered Meluza as her main dish which was fresh and delicious. I ordered the Sole which was a huge disappointment. It was definitely not fresh and had obviously been frozen with the result that it was rubbery in texture and with a strange taste. And this despite our server telling me that it was fresh before I ordered. El Barill has a certain reputation which fell down a lot because of this experience. With mineral water and a single glass of house white wine, the bill was €105 ,which is expensive given the poor experience. This was our second visit and we will not return again. It seems El Barill is “living on its laurels” but for how much longer?

Hemos estado varias veces y ha sido la mejor. Todo lo que pedimos estaba perfecto, pero sin duda lo menos los arroces: buenísimos. Desde la llegada el servicio excelente. Salimos muy contentos.

Very nice food and professionel service. We however waited too long for the paella (worth waiting for, however). Lovely archistokes but too big portions.

Was Highly recommended by the hotel we stayed n the local we met! Seafood was as fresh as it could be, the Prawn logos Paella is to die for, so is the clam. Staffs were friendly, Attentive and welcoming. We are two of us so Going back for more before we leave! Keep it up restaurant

Very attentive service and the food was amazing. Great glass of Sangria and the Seafood Paella was exactly what I was hoping for. A nice amuse bouche and small dessert taste was offered free from chef!

The food was very good. The evening was however spoilt by kitchen staff taking wheeled rubbish bins from the kitchen to the rear entrance, through the back part of the eating area, banging and crashing them as the dragged them up the stair. Very odd!.
