Good mushrooms - worth a flying visit only

Small place so gets very busy as it's on most Tapas tours. Mushrooms are delicious but thats about it. Definitely worth a short visit - red wine and soda is great with the mushrooms.

As the name suggest (House of Mushrooms), the specialty is mushrooms. If you don't like mushrooms I'd skip this place but if you do, the "décor" and delicious mushrooms will be a highlight of your tapas crawl.

The mushrooms are still special as is the building, I'm afraid it's a bit 'touristy' now but well worth a visit.

This is a fun and quirky tapas bar. Best to visit as part of a Tapas bar crawl - you don't need to spend hours here. Felt like going back into a time warp - very 1970's. The keyboard player with his bowtie and waistcoat playing "sing-a-long" tunes, the weird décor and a fun crowd. Just stay for 30 mins... More

Came here on a food tour of Madrid, we had the mushrooms and Tinta (red wine with soda water, very refreshing). They were quite delicious! This restaurant knows what it's good at and sticks to it.

Title: The vegetable Mushroom, lol! Only had 1 night in Madrid and this was a really fun excursion. A friend took us here and it turned into a really fun night.

I came here with my family - a party of four. The tapas was good but it wasn't mind blowing. The mushrooms were done really well and the peppers were quite delicious but I wouldn't be running back any time soon to try it again. It was a cute little place but I felt it was slightly overpriced.

This is an adorable little restaurant that was cozy and cheerful. The people that worked there were loaded with personality. They seemed genuinely happy to have us there. We had a variety of different foods and the stand out was the mushrooms. The live music was fun too!

This tiny tapas joint is located at the corner of the San Miguel Mercato! This picturesque tapas bar with very friendly personnel serves basically only 2 tapas variaties: Pimiento pardon and obviously the house specialty of mushrooms on hot plate(Plancha)! This place demonstrates how delicious “simplicity” can be! Good quality olive oil, a tiny piece of Iberico in the mushrooms... 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.
