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!

Just awesome. Best mushrooms ever. A lot of salt, garlic and parsley. And of course Chorizo... Nice people who work there. Hasn't changed ever!

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

Went here for tapas twice over three days. There is a reason it is so busy...... It's because it is so good. Can't vouch for anything besides the mushrooms, but why would you get anything else?

The only thing that makes this place "touristy" is that it is a really fun place for tourists and locals to have some of the best stuffed mushrooms I've ever tasted as well as great Sangria. Shocked that others have said the mushrooms were overpriced, because I couldn't tell you the last time I got a mushroom appetizer in a... More

Quircky little tourist place. Nice mushrooms but maybe not for the price. Felt awkward when the guy on the keyboard asked for tips even though we heard him play 1 song. Staff helpful and polite though. A place to visit literally for one drink and a bite

This place is in one of the stalls under the Plaza Major and if you love sauté mushrooms, try this one. Nice wine too.

This must be the only place in Madrid where you do not get a free tapa when ordering a drink at the bar. We asked for a caña but were given a bottle.. That was all they had apparently... We were standing at the bar and what I must thank them for though is the creepy ambiance and the laughs... More

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.
