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).

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!

Came in here as part of a tapas tour, a quirky little bar specialising in mushroom tapas. Our guide recommended some mushrooms and peppers all washed down with excellent Sangria. A fun spot for a little light tapas

We really enjoyed having some mushrooms with a beer at the Meson del Champiñon. They were amazing and the piano player brought some nice atmosphere. Will come back for sure.

The mushrooms are outstanding, house wine is decent, and the piano player/singer is entertaining. This is one of those cool little places that somebody has to tell you about, or you'd never walk into the place (thus tripadvisor). A fun little hideaway with a fun crowd. Great place to wait for your Botin reservation.

Every time I return to this small Madrid restaurant I eat the fabulous mushrooms they serve there. The menu is not very wide ,but this is a place for mushrooms ,cooked/fried in a very special recipe. If you like mushrooms this the place for you!!
