As in almost restaurants and bars we went in Spain, there are only 2 or 3 waiters to serve so many customers. But the "tapas" were good and well made. The price was fair enough.

We stopped in for beverages as we were out and about the whole day and were pretty parched. We ordered a pitcher of the Vino Tinto de Verano (which is just red wine lemon Fanta) which is a light and refreshing beverage. But when the bill arrived we were charged for sangria (17 euro) instead of the verano (9 euro).... More

Casual eatery. Not the most impressive food or drinks. But was good refreshment after a football game. Slow staff and OK service.

...I was looking for a decent meal and I decided to stop by...I opted for hamburgers...the bread did not taste that fresh and the meat was ok...waiters not particularly friendly...in Madrid you can find better food at the same price...but if you are starving...

We really enjoyed our lunch here as the quality of the food and the sangria was excellent as was the service! The only thing letting this place down was the cost of it all! The mixed jamon iberico and cheese platter was €18 yet only had 6 pieces of cheese and a scattering of the meats... Definitely not enough for... More

Take a break here for some good value and a good selection of Tapas, staff friendly and helpful. not to be compared to Calle Baja old world tapas but for a high street venue not bad for a quick bite as you shop.

Tasty food, good prices and great staff. Good feel to the place, interesting decor and VERY popular. We had tapas and drinks on one night and went back for breakfast two mornings. All served timely and hot with a smile.

Looks like a cool industrial place but the Tapas were seriously mediocre and the prawns were cold frozen badly thawed and were dodgy. Service pleasant.

toasted bread with ONE white asparagus, THREE slices of hard boiled egg, some cheese smothered on top: 7,50 euros. I am not kidding. Service? What service? Oh, you mean the three different people who dropped off the 'dishes' one at a time when they happened to be in our area. I have grown accustomed to pretend-food, my budget (two adults... More

WARNING: this restaurant is a tourist trap!!! The atmosphere was lovely but the food was horrible. There was a waitress there who was very moody and rude. We ordered two paellas (18€ each) and they were absolutely awful- and we could tell it was definately not fresh. Everything was very expensive, and we found ourselves waiting half an hour for...

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
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 desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
