we did a lot of restaurants in Madrid but La Musa was our favorite! Go for the degustation menu and enjoy. Deco is great, products are very good so do not hesitate...

A small place in Malasana that is decorated in a clever modern style, this restaurant serves tremendous tapas. I had good sangria as I ate: an amuse of potato wedge with mayo on bread; a bomba, which is a big breadcrumbed and deep fried ball with potato, beef and pork inside and served cut in half on spinach purée with...

When walking in Madrid to find a nice place to eat, we were attracted to this restaurant. As there was no more room outside, we had a table inside. We ordered a variety of tapas, most of them were nice. But there was something that made that our experience here became not a very nice memory, or should we say... More

Food was delicious, music was perfect, the staff were very friendly and the prices are very good ( drinks and a good meal should cost you 40 euro ). Do your self a favor... More

I have to say that the first thing that I noticed was the eye catching sign of the place: various displays each one showing a letter of the name of the restaurant, changing continuously the style of every image. So, once I was lured, I decided to give it a try. And it ended well! The place is small but... More

We went to La Musa for lunch and got good food for a low price. The waiter was friendly and we got our food fast. The atmosphere was very relaxed, it was not too crowded and not too loud. Overall a good experience, I can recommend the place.

Great experience, small place in Madrid yet very popular. The drinks were great, had some interesting Mojitos and Caiprioskas. The food was amazing. We ordered one round and were full as even the tapas were pretty sizeable helpings but we were yet hungry for me and we ordered another limited second helping and stuffed ourselves to the brim. The place... More

What a great find. Recommended by Lonely Planet guide. The food was amazing, the best tapas we have eaten in Madrid. Great service and a relaxed atmosphere. We had the wild board with honey and mustard and a mixed tapas of fish and meat - truly delicious.

You need a reservation normally but if you like Tapas this is it. Great food and service. Could eat out there every night. The emphasis is on modern interpretations of Tapes. Almost an Asian slant. What ever it is a foodies delight and it will not break the bank
