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

The menu mainly consists of tapas and has a reasonably good range of dishes. The quality of the food was generally very good although the portion sizes are not that big. The service was professional and efficient. In general, the value for money was good however the mixed barbecue was quite expensive for the size of the dish. Even so,... More

We ate at La Musa a few times and they were the best meals we had in Madrid. The variety of tapas spanned traditional, Asian, American and other European. Creative and delicious. Be sure to try the deserts. When we go back to Madrid, this will be the first place we go.

I come to this place all the time when I am in Madrid and it's always excellent! The staff are always very friendly and helpful and value regular customers! The tapas is great and they also do really good cheap breakfasts! No wonder this place is always busy!
