Great Tapas, Casual Dining

Yes, the tapas are delicious and the wine is good. A bit more original and borrowing from various cuisines, the tapas are still Spanish. Don't know why this cuisine is called "American." A fun place even with the techno-pop background music.

We've now eaten 4 times in this restaurant, so it's about time I did a review! We love this restaurant so much, it's our favourite in Madrid! The first time we visited was for the set lunch menu, we weren't impressed, there was nothing special about it. We decided we needed to return for the evening menu, and we were... More

I like this place, it was a long way for us to get too..............and then a long wait...but it was worth it I suppose. Somewhere my GF used to visit a few years ago as a student. Like I said, a bit of a wait....no real assistance when you get there other than to 'search out for the guy in... More

We came here 3 out of our 7 nights in Madrid. In Malasaña where we were staying, there are many good restaurants, but - especially in the price range - La Musa must be one of the best. We were two adults with a teen and all enjoyed it equally much. The tapas are inspired by world cuisine, Japanese, Mexican,... More

We popped in there to try one of the dishes recommended on TA. Jabali con alioli de miel (wild boar with honey alioli) was simply amazing. My wife had grilled, bit spicy langostinos which were also very tasty. Place has some unusual decor with some installations on the walls. Our impression - although our visit was short - is very...

We went to Madrid for our honeymoon. We found this place in Fodor's book! I was little skeptical but it was better than I could ever imagine. It was so amazing that we cancelled our reservation for the next night and went here again. Every single item we ordered both nights was so delicious. If we are ever lucky enough... More

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.
