I had read about it and since we passed on the way, we dropped in. We had the porros instead of churros. It was OK, but nothing special I really didn't think that they were any better than any other churros we had. Atomosphere is nice, since the people serving are smartly dressed, prices weren't ridiculous, but that is about... More

We were directed by the Hotel staff to go and enjoy the best ever Churros with Chocolate.... it is down a very pleasant walk from downtown ....and it has been in its location for as long as the Madrilenos can count back....on their walls there are thousands of pictures from people that have visited this Chocolateria over the years... service...

The churros are surprisingly bland, and the chocolate is mediocre. Just not good. Absolutely a tourist trap. Old school cafe atmosphere, but do not go out of your way to go here.

If you are not Spaniard and are in the area, you should try chocolate with churros. This is a very typical place for that. Spaniards have it around 6pm, for the afternoon snack, or after a night of dancing in a disco (it can be 3 or 4 am). Even though the churros weren't very hot last time I was... More

We went there with high expectations, being very fond of churros. The churros was just ok, and the experience was underwhelming.

We went there as we learnt it is a "must see". Very delicate but do not order to much. You will soon have enough. for our family it is something we will try once.

Came late at night for beer and chocolate. Fairly busy even at the time of day. Was quite nice churros. Great bar area. Really retro with lots of photos. Worth a quick visit

We had our first snack in this place when we arrived in Madrid. It was rainy afternoon and a plate of churros dipped in chocolate and a cup of coffee are perfect for this kind of day. The service in this place was not so good though, they kept us waiting for a long time, the people who came much... More

Im a big churros fan and I have eaten in many Churrerias in America, mostly in Mexico. When visited San Gines I really understood the origin of the original Spanish recipe. About the food a Churros order and a Chocolate to dip the churros is a must. The chocolate is not any I ever tasted before. it is really intense... More

I believe this is a best place to try Spanish churros and hot chocolate, the hot chocolate here is the best I have ever had. It is said chocolate is 75%, warm and tasty. A seat is hard to find from morning to midnight, really amazing. In fact we went there everyday during our holiday in Madrid, sometimes twice a... More
