Great happening place and superlative ambience. One of the best places in Madrid to hang out. Loads of food and beverage options from tapas to main course. Evenings are super busy and crowded and that's the real fun

Strategically located in the Old Town next to the Plaza Mayor. Great place to sample tapas, ,jamon iberico, bacalao treats, Spanish tortilla and paella. A bit pricey and crowded, but loads of fun. A must!

A Madrid Must Go Stop For Visitors. Lots of stands selling great local produce - pricey but enjoy the atmosphere!

We went only window shopping after lunch and I will recommend to do so, or you might buy more than you should. It is very vibrant and there is a lot to see and taste. I highly recommend it to visit when in Madrid

No time or space to admire or try the food. You have to keep walking because there's people coming from every direction. Don't advise you to go there on meal time. Place to sit? Not a chance

In this mercado you can find absolutely everything regarding premium quality of food and wine. Everything it’s served as tapas style perfect to share, some of them can be quite expensive but you will leave happy and satisfied! Must go!

The iron and glass building covers a whole block. Inside is a feast to look at and a feast to eat. There are so many different booths that you simply have to keep going back to try more. With tapas starting at about 1.5 euro...More

No matter that this is a touristy place it really worths a visit. You can find almost everything in there, so you will never feel bored.

Small, but clean and well renovated market hall which only caters for tourists. Noisy, overcrowded... stressful experience. Maybe you can buy a nice snack&wine .... but almost no place to eat/drink it.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as

Yes, it’s always a good time - but I prefer a bit later to enjoy beer and tapas!
