No seating available..! If you have kids try a different cafe, very difficult eating with kids! A small bottle of water costs 2 euros while a large bottle costs 1 euro at any other store in the city. There are approximately 20 food stands around in the same facility and people keep running around in order to find available seating.... More

During our April stay in Madrid, we've beet to the Mercado San Miguel twice, both time having drinks in Cafe del Art. First time we've chosen sangria (very nice taste, a lot of fruits added) and second time - Tarta de Limon (creme de limon galleta, chocolate blanco y nata montada). The Tarta costed 5 euro and it was totally... More

This sort of place is why we love Madrid! A massive array of all things Spanish and tasty! It was very busy but in a good way and had a great vibe. Every type of olive you can imagine and some fab sweet pastries and cakes. We would have gone back but ran out of time.

At our first late morning strolling through the streets of Madrid we arrived by luck at the Mercado de San Miguel. Already hungry we decided to eat some thing, It is like a market a lot of stands and little bars where you can choose what to eat. There are tables and sitting places all around the place. There is... More

nice place, very elegant and well maintained. interesting choice of food at quite impossible prices. i think it deserves a visit of 15' of our time... or 1/2 of a hour to have some oysters and a flute... nothing reminds to the original market save the iron of the columns. are we sure that this is the madrid we would...

I hadn't heard about this Mercado before coming to Madrid, and when I found it I fell in love! This is my favorite place to meet up with people because there is typical Spanish food and something for everyone to choose. I can come here if I want Greek yogurt, vermouth, tortilla, tapas, or helado! It's relatively cheap and very... More

I love the wine bar and Iberico Jamon there. You can drink many wines by glass from more than hundred labels I guess!!! The prices are ranged from less than Euro3 up to more than Euro30.- for a glass of different wine. Several good ham shops inside the market. I love it!!!

This is a great place if you are a foodie. It showed the real fusion of food culture that Madrid clearly has. We went twice, once to avoid the rain on Saturday afternoon - nightmare so crowded and whilst the atmosphere was great and it had a real buzz, it was not possible to get anywhere near any of the...

Absolutely loved Mercado San Miguel which we visited every day during our recent trip to Madrid. We sampled tapas from various places within the market, all of which were divine. We drank lovely Rioja and had great espressos and pastries. Can't rate it highly enough.
