I had the nachos, enchiladas verdes, steak and a margarita from this restuarant. They were so good. The margarita was made perfectly! Coming from Houston, I was expecting to be disappointed by "Mexican" food in Spain, but I was completely satisfied.

We ordered nacho and two type of tacos: shrimp and beef. The food is good, but not enough salsa, no guacamole, no lime for the tacos. The chip they used for nacho is too salty.

We decided to try Central Mexicana while exploring the Gourmet Experience. I ordered enchiladas while my wife ordered tacos (pictured). Different than your typical American style Mexican food but very tasty nonetheless. We had hoped for chips and salsa with meal but waiter had no...More

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

Central Mexicana Restaurante & Tequila is a mexican restaurant founded in december of 2010 by their current owners, Salvador Ventura, Marta Gonzalez and Cuauhtemoc Nava. The main focus of the restaurant is to represent at its best mexican gastronomy. Along with an urban esthetic and contemporary design, we offer dishes that can be found in both north and southern regions. We are also big entusiastics of tequila and mezcal, so if you are a ever in Madrid you cannot miss the chance to come and taste our margaritas, wich in many of our costumers words, are one of a kind.

In the last tree years we have opened three other restaurants, inclunding a brand new location in Alicante. And we can only hope to expand in the near future so we can keep cooking and mixing margaritas! For more information please visit our website Central Mexicana.
