Best mushrooms ever

My girlfriend and I stopped in for a quick tapas at this place. We had a couple of beers, peppers, and the famous mushrooms. Everything was absolutely delicious! It also felt very authentic hanging out by the bar. This place gets busy and for good reason.

Arrived late in the evening with our tapas tour group and had a few things - but we were totally blown away by the place. It was a cave way below the ground. The sangria there was good ... not too sweet - I am not a sangria fan but this was fine and I was given to understand that... More

This place is indescribably weird in the best possible way. Picture Asian, German, and American tourists huddled together in a cave eating mushrooms, drinking cava, and listening to some dude on the electric organ play Pink Floyd, Whitney Houston, and traditional music from every country represented in the room. Also, the mushrooms are delicious.

I also tried it at home / just missed the Iberico Ham to out in it. Yes, it was very good. We also had their padron peppers. Those wee excellent as well. I also... More

Great mushrooms and it can get pretty lively later at night when the sangria has been flowing. Its worth putting up with loud, drunk Americans at least once while in Madrid

The ploace was heaving - around 6pm, our order of two portions (around 8 mushrooms per order) was taken quickly at the bar... More

I'm not a huge fan of champignons, so I was quite sceptic when my friends brought me here. However, turned out to be super delicious!! We only had them as a starter, but we ordered one with and one without ham, but we're fantastic! Would definitely recommend this place :))

Not only are the mushrooms delicious, but the atmosphere is awesome near the Mercado de San Miguel. The restaurant is built in a cave under the plaza mayor - it is original and an unforgettable experience in Madrid. Eat standing up at the bar to save some money and engage in good conversation with the bartenders and other visitors. Menu... 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.
