You might miss this place if you're not looking carefully, so make sure your eyes are peeled as you walk down the cobblestones. I am a big mushroom fan, so this place is right up my alley. You don't have to like mushrooms to love it - but "champiñón" is a mushroom, and that dish is their specialty, as you'd... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by local friends and I have returned several times since then. The food is very good, the service very friendly and the atmosphere with a mix of tradition and fun. Fun because of the "pianist" playing entertaining songs that the local crowd will go with. Make sure you stay for a few glasses of... More

Although it's called meson del champignons and I hoped to have many options on the menu but it was worth for the only one they have. We asked a sangria to get a long with and all fine.

Small "mushroom bar" near the Plaza Mayor and Mercado San Miguel. We stood at the bar and had a serving of mushrooms with wine and beer. There are tables in the back and a guy playing the organ (or some type of instrument). It is an old place but has a funky atmosphere. Next time we will sit in the... More

This tiny spot is what I've been looking for, for more than a week! Botin is interesting because it's the "oldest restaurant in the galaxy". But the food is truly mediocre. When you come to Madrid you will want to try 2 dishes before you leave. Paella of course. And roast suckling pig. Every pub and restaurant has both. Some... More

Located in historic part of Madrid, this quirky place does what it says, Mushrooms. Often stop by for Mushrooms and a few beers before heading out and the organ player never fails to get the crowd going

WOW, what mushrooms you can have here! It is a very small, crowded place, but we had nothing but great culinary experience. A must visit place, when you are in Madrid, close to Plaza Mayor.

Be sure to taste the specialty of the house, the mishrooms. They are filled with olive oil, garlic, and ham, really excellent, muy rico!

It has the most superb staff with long memories for old customers . It is a quirky cavern like bar with a karaoke style back room. The front is dedicated to the most delicious mushrooms served muy calliente. The ham is top class, the wine good and the beer freezing.
