Just OK

The restaurant is very nice looking, just outside La Plaza Mayor, across the street from El Sobrino del Botin, the oldest restaurant in the world. The prices are above average, indicating a tourist trap. The garlic soup was excellent but expensive at 12 Euros. The eggs I ordered were just OK, as... read more

We chose this restaurant, because it was in a great location, and the menu and prices looked ok. But we did a mistake. When we came in we had to wait for a menu, waiter was really unpleasant. I live in Spain for a while, so I and my friend chose meals what we know, so we were expecting good... More

I agree with some of the other reviewers that this is a tourist trap. The restaurant is conveniently located near Plaza Mayor and looks like a nice restaurant. I went here with my parents on 31 December as most of the restaurants and bodegas were closed in Madrid. The quality of the food is not bad, but the cod filet... More

Our second night in Madrid and we walked the streets reading menus to see if something different could excite us. While this restaurant was relatively empty the Ox Tail on the menu got our attention. The waiter was well dressed and very efficient we both had the Ox Tail and a bottle of excellent Spanish Rose. There was a complementary... 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 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 which were OK but once again the... 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

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.
