This place is exceptional. It is a modern Spanish market with booths offering every type of Spanish food from tapas to cheeses to fish to cakes and candy. Plus a fantastic wine bar where you can have excellent Spanish wines at 3 euros a glass. We ate our way through this market. We didn't want to leave. The ambience is... More

Someone had a very good idea. Take an indoor market and turn into individual tapas outlets and bars. Fine, if you can get a seat! it's so busy you can hardly move. The tapas are no different to other restaurants, and more expensive! A glass of wine will knock you back 3 euros, and individual tapas anywhere from 1 euro... More

I'll start off stating that the Mercado San Miguel is a tourist destination and you will not find many locals there unless they are also showing tourist friends around. However, the moment you step into the market, your senses are filled the delicious aromas of tapas, paella, chorizito and some very underrated pizza. I loved the tapas, especially the white... More

Great place to enjoy some tapas and wine while mixed in the crowd. It gives a good feel of why Madrid is one place to visit and enjoy!

Recommended by lonely planet as a meal stop on their 2 hour self guided old Madrid walking tour ( a very well designed route) This place was superb. Set in a beautiful wrought iron and glass building and offering a wide range of tasty tapas options. I ate way more than I was planning to! Perfect for a lunch stopover.... More

We went to this Market twice for dinner after discovering it by accident. You order tapas/pinchos and wine/beer from over 50 different markets and then if you can find a stool sit, if not lean on the bar and have your meal. You can have lots of different tastes from 1euro to 15e. Some are better value than others, so... More

Cute market with a wide variety of foods. Some things can be pricey but it is a good place to try a little of everything. Be careful when ordering, at one booth in the front the lady piled items on a plate, even though I only asked for 2 things, popped the plate into the microwave and then wanted 13... More
