We often wanted to eat outside the standard Spanish times and staff here were happy to comply. As we were staying in the hotel (Regina), this was convenient

As we come to the end of a fine trip to Europe, we look back on some very good meals. None was better than the one at Amayra. We started with a white fish with caviar followed by a creative appetizer with cured ham with cranberry jam on toast. Just the right combination of sweet and savory. Next was a... More

Went there with my boyfriend on a 50% discount offered by the fork. Food and service just awesome. Only thing, we were given a menu where paella price seemed just too high (31 euros/person). Maybe a bit too much.

Amayra is in the Hotel Regina, where we stayed, and was more than handy. The food was fine, and the bar staff was helpful. Husband was there enough that he knew where the English language menu was, and figured out what he could eat on the menu by the time we left. We enjoyed actually watching the jamon iberico actually... More

We went for the set paella menu, which was very resonably priced. 3 courses and a drink for around £20. Had a couple of choices for each course. Restaurant looked fairly up-market, in an easy to find location, right next to a metro station. Food was of a good standard, and the perfect amount. Only criticism was the prawns could've... More

We had a reservation for having dinner at this restaurant. It was closed menu that we found through a website. The service was excellent, the dishes where local and super tasty and we ended up pretty full. 100% recommended!

Was staying at the Hotel Regina, so ended up eating dinner 3 nights, 2 nights at the restaurant and one night at the cafe. At the restaurant on the 2 nights had vegetarian paella with a glass of house red wine. First night felt it was good and on the second night was average. Had Flan for dessert on the... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
