I read about San Gines before I left for Spain that it was a must try place for churros and chocolate. Well...it was good but I think there are other places that I have been to that served them just as good. If you are in the area, which most likely you will be as it is in the center... More

The churros with hot chocolate are a classic thing to do in Madrid, and a good classic! It's a special thing to make at night, even if you're in Summer!

There's a reason this place has been open since 1894! It's because it's bloody delicious. We were in Madrid for 4 days and went to San Gines 3 times. It's easy, fast, cheap and delicious if you just want to have a snack to go (6 churros for € 1.60) or if you just want to relax and have churros... More

Was in Madrid for a week and read that this was a place to go for Churros, what a huge disappointment! Tasteless and bland, the chocolate was like a really bad chocolate fountain! Don't go, have tasted MUCH better ones at home in Glasgow... Really!!

We visited just after midnight, the day we arrived to Madrid. The place was busy, with people sitting inside and outside on the sidewalk. For less than 4 euro we go one serving of churos. Minutes after we sat down a waiter collected the ticket and brought back the warm sweet delight. It was worth every cent and made it... More

So the chocolat con churros is great, yes, but probably matched a few other places. You go to hang out and see the place, otherwise you missed a small but important part of Madrid. Slightly grumpy service is classic.

I have to say, I have been here multiple times, but this is the first review. We were in Madrid with a friend who has never been, so this is the ultimate experience for her. If you have seen the movie Choclat and fantasized about getting a cup of chocolate like that, you are in for a treat. Not overly... More

This place is amazing. The chocolat and churros are really great, the best you can have in Madrid. Try to have your chocolat and churros on the cellar, it's really cool!

By far one of the best plate of Churros I have had. Left me wanting more but too full to eat more. Great Bang for your Euros.
