Servicio muy mediocre de una "camarera" de los años 20. 3 Euros por un botellin pequeño de Cola, 3 por una clara, 2.50 por una botellita de agua. 6 Euros por unas bravas normalitas y 50 centimos por un pan que no pedimos!!!! Ni hola, ni adios, ni gracias y ademas te recogen la mesa para que largues rapido. FATAL!!!... More

AVOID going here for anything. We were just looking for a place to have a drink after a late dinner and it was in a busy plaza. The older lady (who never smiled the whole time) set up a table for us, but spoke no english at all (not that that is an issue usually), but we asked for glasses... More

Stopped at this place as it looked comfortable and the food we saw looked good. Prices were high, though Service was ok. We had three options for menu and had difficulty understanding the differences, but got our order placed and enjoyed our food. Just expensive, which is the norm for Madrid

It's a lovely sunny weekend in October, you're in the old town and you'd really love to eat lunch outside. Unfortunately, thousands of other tourists and Madrilenos have the same idea and, by lunchtime (ie 2pm), every outside table is full, so you either cruise the streets in the hope of finding someone leaving a table, or join a queue....

The square in which the cafe is located is nice. Unfortunately this is a place we will not go back to. For two tinto de verano we ended up paying an extortionate amount....not that we saw a bill or change! The middle aged woman who works here (or runs it) cleared the tables by throwing stuff on the ground. Any... More

They ripped me off and I am a local. I had an argument with the lady because she charged more than was due. I didn't get my money back. The little food I had was good, and the plaza is very nice, only these people make it worse because they trash it (instead of cleaning the table the lady threw... More

Foreign tourists who'd like to pay lots of money for food they've never ordered should go to Cafe Milano in Madrid. We ordered drinks and food and according to the pricelist we had to pay around 45 euro. But the Cafe Milano-staff have their own calculator and showed us a 68 euro-bill. After a long and heated discussion we paid... More

Just as mentioned before, these people are taking advantage of tourists. We ordered a plate of the house for four persons. We thought it was a plate with different kinds of food. We got some cheese, chorizo, bread and meatballs in sauce (as mentioned before in a review). We thought that that was the plate of the house. Obviously we... More

Okay, so the food was pretty damn good, I will give Café Milano that. However, the staff and bill were a joke. We ordered four beers (4 Euros each), three salads (6 Euros each), and a small plate of manchego cheese (4 Euros). We received four beers, three salads a plate of manchego cheese, a basket of bread and five... More
