This place is crowded and friendly. It had a great atmosphere. We arrived around 9 PM, and were seated fairly quickly but the restaurant began to fill up shortly after that. They have an interesting menu of Topos. We ordered the delicious avocado and tomato served in a mortar and pestle, as well as the hamburgers and also La Bomba.... More

For those who are sick of tapas that have been sitting out for hours, or of unhealthy Iberian ham, this place is highly recommended. Order 5-6 tapas to share among 2 people. Prepare to ooh and aha. Food is made for you from scratch and there are some fantastic and healthy options - an avocado salad/dip that you mix yourself... More

My friends and I were staying in Malasana and wanted to go to a popular restaurant in the area. Once we arrived it was confusing how to be seated, no one took our name for a while. We eventually got drinks at the bar and the bartender took down our name. We were seated pretty quickly (the place is small).... More

Fantastic little place in the Masalana district. Tried the Degustation menu (15 euro per person) based on the recommendations on Foursquare, and it was fantastic with a slight Japanese influence! Definitely a place worth eating at

Have been to the La musa in Malasana once and the La musa in Latina twice and they are both really good. Think i have to say i live Malasana better cause of the cool atmosphere! The food and the drinks are very good. Love this place!!

Staying in Malasana

Neighborhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
