I was excited to try this restaurant, but it was a very bad decision. First, they charge €1.50 each person for a stale piece of bread without asking first if we wanted it. Then we ordered the food was overpriced. €6.50 a bowl of Gazpacho and €10.50 for scrambled eggs with mushrooms. The waiter forgot two of our plates, and... More

Taberna Mariano was a great find for me. It is located a block or so behind the Palace Hotel within walking distance of the Prado Museum. Mariano is small, only about eight tops, so you will have to arrive early to be seated promptly. I ate lunch there on two consecutive days and locals had taken every table by 2... More

A casual place for locals, moderately priced. Excellent peppers (pimientos), either grilled and salted or with that delicious ventresca (tuna). Good boquerones al vinagre, too. My friend speaks for the croquetas, which I personally have never much cared for. But she says they're good. House wines are reasonably priced and perfectly fine, and the gruff but welcoming patron and his... More
