Nice Setting. Food underwhelming

This looked OK from the outside so we took a chance. Initial impressions were OK. I ordered the cod. While this came with a sweet pepper sauce, the flavours were incredibly bland. It all looked OK and was cooked properly but could really have done with something more. My partner had some calamari... read more

We ate outside. It is in a good location with a great atmosphere, plenty going on nearby but very little road traffic. Good food. The staff were friendly and helpful, and they didn't rush us at all so we stayed a long time, enjoying a couple of drinks after dinner. It was a little more expensive than otehr restaurants we...

We were warned not to eat too close to Plaza Mayor, so we should have been more careful. This is the classic tourist trap. Tables outside, looking onto the goings on around.... Our waiter looked like an investment banker, and probably trained to be one, judging by his manner (not that I have anything against bankers, but they don't make... More

This restaurant is centrally located coming down from Mercado San Miguel where you can have a wide range of local cuisine at affordable prices. You can have lunch from their varied menu taking advantage of their daily specials, much appreciated by locals. But you could also stop to have a brief mid afternoon "picadera" or appetizers with cider while the... More

Good place near Plaza Mayor and beautiful street. In this restaurant scrambled eggs are very good. We went 6 people and shared scrambled eggs and "toast" each 2 people and it was ok. Extra bread is paid. Recommended

An omen is when on a Sunday night, when all of the adjacent restaurants are full, this one was quite empty. The food was OK, not bad, however, for the price, I would try one of the other restaurants in the area. There are many others to choose from. Service was also acceptable, not great but not extremely attentive. We... More

Looking for a restaurant among the seemingly hundreds near the Plaza Mayor on a Saturday evening, we ended up at the Maestro Villa. The fact that most of the restaurants at that time were packed, but this one wasn’t, should’ve been a tip-off. Hunger however has a way of overriding reason, so we took our places in the main room.... More

We wound up our evening at Maestro Villa, looking to finish off our evening's dinner. It was a beautiful evening so we wanted to sit outside, and Maestro Villa seemed to fit the bill. We had ordered beer, calamari and omelette. Service was quite quick. The calamari was pricey at e16, but we all love calamari, so we thought go... More

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
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.
