I recently visited this establishment, after hearing many great reviews and even some locals recommending it. I was disappointed, and much prefer another Churrería just down the street, near the Monastery of Las Descalzas. The chocolate here was not very good, and the churros were more greasy than at other places. Add to that the lines and gruff service, and... More

These Churos were very good. It's a great place to hangout and grab a coffee/tea and some dessert. The outdoor seating is the best especially with the street view. The place actually serves real chocolate that tastes amazing unlike others that are sugared down like here in the US. You definitely need to try it in in Madrid.

I was excited to go here considering it's reputation and my love of churros. Don't expect a friendly welcome or relaxed ambience, it was pretty frantic when I was there for breakfast at 10:00. But the churros are quite nice and the mug of thick chocolate quite delicious. Six churros was a lot for one person and you can't get... More

San Gines is one of more tradicional chocolateria in Madri. You can taste a churros or a good chocolate cake. There are a lot of photos of personalities cover the wall. Besides, is so close to Enjoy Club and it is open durin 24 hrs!. So, I suggest to go there before to come back home, and after to dance... More

Very bad experience. After 10 minutes past our order I got up to check if I can pick the ordr myself, and was shouted at to sit back down. The choros were very dry, greasy, and manufactory like. Not worth the money and the trouble!

It's a special breakfast. It worth to try once if you visit this city. Even it opens long hours but it still busy when we visit there.

I'm not a chocolate fanatic like my wife so a cold beer was fine by me but the churros were worth the trip finding it. Lots of history on the walls and a window into the deep fryer to see how the churros are made.

This lovely little chocolateria became a Madrid institution. A visit to the city would not be complete without trying the chocolate con churros,

After seeing the ratings and reading the reviews... It was very disappointing!! Don't expect much from the cafe apart from plain churros with not so tasty chocolate. We went midday which is not recommended with people hoovering around you waiting to pounce on your seat, not pleasant! The chocolate was not sweet at all and the churros were plain. Can... More

We went there for "chocolate con churros". Great experience. The waiters are talented and very friendly. If you are in Madrid, San Gines is a must.
