Good tapas place

Very nice, small and cozy place. seems like they've been doing it for years. You have to try to mushrooms here but also the other regular Spanish tapas. during the evening there is also a guy playing music. very good experience

We LOVED this tiny tapas bar featuring delicious grilled mushrooms, green peppers and boquerones (pickled anchovy fillets). We went three different times, and fell in love with their live music, funky decor, and sweet organ player. We didn't speak one another's language but he happily agreed to our music requests--when one in our party requested "Michael Jackson" he played "We... More

This is a very small place. The mushrooms are their speciality, and they are definitely very very good. I would like to know what is the secret behind but they are just delicious. You should give them a try!

We have come to this place based on review in Tripadvisor and it is so good. The staffs are friendly and the taste is very nice. The pepper is not hot at all. I highly recommend this place even you would like to have a quick light meal.

An interesting restaurant that specialises in Mushrooms, although it does have other Spanish fair, such as peppers, cheese, jamon, croquettes etc, (you cant expect a vast selection as its such a tiny room.) the last 3 visits here have all ended with us standing at the bar and eating, and watching what looks to be organised chaos behind the bar/kitchen....

With its piano-bar keyboardist shrouded in holiday lights, cave-like architecture, unusual color scheme, and playful mushrooms "growing" from the arched ceiling, Meson del Champinon's unique ambiance made this visit worthwhile for us. The space is small and cramped, but you'll have fun. We were surprised to learn that there is only one dish featuring mushrooms on the limited menu. The... More

A quaint restaurant with rustic interior using very fresh ingredients. It's a great place to have an appetizer; mushrooms, calamari, or peppers even if you intend to have a heavier meal elsewhere, it's THAT good! There was a musician on a keyboard playing Spanish music...not overly loud , just enough to add to the fun ambience. Wonderful place for a... More

Cheap, quick, and good. menu is limited to the mushrooms, peppers and ham. super crowded but the crowd seems to move in and out quick. the service is quick and awesome and friendly. so simple and so easy but so good.

Simple preparation of button mushrooms, but this place has perfected its technic and used local fresh ingredient and of course with love. We enjoyed these mushrooms so much that we wanted to come every day, staff members are very friendly, the chefs are really put their love in what they are cooking. We shall come back next time when we... 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.
