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.

Another world famous place. Cave like you walk to the back of the bar and sit an small benches and stools. The house special is the champinones(mushrooms). During the weekend there is someone on the organ and locals come to sing. A really great night to be had. Great entertainment for all ages. Viva España (as one of the local... More

Go get the mushrooms! My husband and I came to this tapas bar every night during our stay in Madrid to get the mushrooms and a glass of the house red wine. It was affordable and so tasty!
