    Bar el Tigre

    10 reviews

    El Tigre has to be one of the best spots in Madrid if you're looking for cheap drinks and tapas! The bar is always jam packed with people so you have to arrive early if you want to get a spot! You can get a HUGE plastic cup of mojito for only €6 and no matter how little you spend ...

    When you are in Madrid you must stop at this place and have the Chocolate con churros. The chocolate is rich and thick and delicious. Don't get one to share get your own, you will be able to eat the whole thing I promise. Oh, rats - writing about this is making my mouth scream chocolate!

    La Mallorquina

    9 reviews

    Known to many as a Madrid institution, La Mallorquina has been around since 1894, and since then has been providing some of the yummiest pastries to be found in the city center. But this pastry shop also is a great place to grab a cup of coffee, especially in the upstairs salon. If you’re lucky and get a window seat, ...

    If you're looking to impress on a budget, Lateral is definitely a winner! Although there are a few Lateral restaurants across the city, the one is Plaza de Santa Ana is definitely the most impressive, especially if you can get a table outside. The cocktails are to die for! The menu is mostly made up of tapas with a contemporary ...

    Venta El Buscón

    2 reviews

    I was in Madrid for 3 months and this is still my favorite restaurant! Everything is good and the selection is outstanding! Seriously I don't think I have ever been anywhere that I have liked everything. The prices are reasonable and there is a huge selection of everything. Do Not forget to order the Sangria!

    Lolina Vintage Café

    3 reviews

    This cafe is super cute and comfortable and a great place to take a break after exploring Madrid all day. They have a great breakfast combo (cake and coffee) and their carrot cake is to die for! Free wifi is another bonus. The downstairs area is a bit less sunny and more bar-like, but the ground floor room with its ...

    Across the street from opera greats near and far have performed, Cafe Desayunos is old world Spanish charm epitomized. Try the terazza outdoor seating for the full experience. Who knows? If you're quiet enough, you might hear the beautiful sounds of a standing ovation opera performance.

    For English speakers used to being immersed in a world of all things Spanish, this indie-vibe coffeehouse will startle you at the door beginning with English greetings and the thousands of books found on both the entry floor and the bottom, basement level.

    Museo del Jamón

    I just love that there is a place called Museum of Ham. We stopped in for a cervezas y bocadillas and were given some free Jamón to sample, as well. The walls and ceilings are covered with hanging legs.

    La Casa del Abuelo

    3 reviews

    A great place to stop for some delicious port, shrimp skewers (with amazing dipping sauce), and cheap beer. The true experience of a Spanish tapas spot where they don't toss trash in a bin, but on the floor when they're done eating.

    One of my favorite restaurants to have dinner (behind the bar) or a drink with tapas standing at the bar. Located around the corner from our vacation rental apartment (VRBO# 378068) in La Latina District. I have been here about a dozen times and tried many things and pretty much liked them all but these are my favorite dishes: - ...

    It's a Madrid classic. Stick to the fried cod and croquetas and watch for the little bones! Cerveza is a must.

    Mercado de San Antón

    7 reviews

    Strolling through the Chueca in Madrid we find this historic market that has been renovated much like other buildings like this both in this city and in other capitals Europe. The building is divided into three floors, on the first floor we find the traditional market stalls selling food, albeit with a fair amount of posts "gourmet" in foods that ...

    La Bola

    This is a great family restaurant that is famous for its Madrilenian cocido, a stew with vegetables and meats (chicken, pork, etc.). I loved the orange broth and the pasta part of the stew but I was a bit squeamish about the pork and chicken because it was on the bone. I learned that I'm a wimpy carnivore because the ...
