I heard a lot about this place and their chocolate con churros but to be frank I was more impressed with the internal decoration with its mirrors and green wood panels, with green velvet seats and marble tables. The chocolate con churros was far too sweet for me and the mixture with the fried dough made me feel ill. As... More

We were passing by and thought we would try this. This is a must when in Madrid. Although one portion is enough for two.

nice tasty and cheap chocolate and churros. Didn't really like the chocolate, but was a nice snack in Madrid.

We found it quite easily although it is in a very narrow street and we also found a table to sit. We tasted the famous churros with this thick, bitter chocolate! A divine experience!

Good dark chocolate and churros. Loved the location and atmosphere here. We went mid afternoon and it was very quiet, which was also nice. Make sure to go in the basement (where the bathrooms are) because it is not apparent upstairs that there is a lovely place to enjoy your churros downstairs.

This is not a restaurant, but you definitely must stop for an awesome chocolate con churros in San Gines if you want your visit to Madrid to be complete. Warning: the line might be long and you may need to wait a bit for a seat, but it is worth it.

Have been here on multiple occasions and always leave satisfied (and weighing a lot more!). It is a great experience and such a quaint little street and building. HIGHLY RECOMMEND it as one of (if not THE) best chocolaterías in Spain.

Great churros and chocolate. Staff very indifferent and kind of rude. I guess they don't cater to repeat customers.

00:00 a.m. meeting your fiends in Cueva de Sesamo after a tapas dinner. Drinking jars of Sangria. At 2:00 a.m. going to Joys or Palacio and disco. At 6:00 a.m. you just jump into San Gines and have the churros dipping into the hot thicky chocolate before you go to bed in a Sunday morning. It's the place where I... More

Lovely introduction to the churros and chocolate that is so famous in Spain. The restaurant was crowded but we found a place to sit and enjoy our churros. It is small and clean. There maybe a wait to get your order. However, it is the ambiance of trying something new in a different culture.
