“don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

for "tapas" lovers and people who want to eat were the locals do. have a lunch here, you will find from paella to oysters, from wine to natural juices, is a gourmet experience. just prepare to eat standing in the middle of a big crowd, let yourself go and enjoy.

“What a great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

A friend told us to the visit the mercado san miguel whilst in Madrid, and I am so glad we listened! What an amazing place! You can eat anythjing you like - from oysters and prawns through to croquettas and amazing chocolates. All washed down of course with great local vermouth's and cava's! The atmosphere has a great buzz to it with all age groups chatting and watching the world go by while they enjoy their tapas. In the summer when it is hot, you are cooled down by the fine mist sprayed from the roof.
The only slightly negative thing I have to say is that you need a receipt from one of the stalls to use the toilets, and the lady in their was feisty to say the least! Not all stalls give a receipt so ask for one if you need the bathroom!
The mercado is a must to see the real Madrid - we went back twice once we had found it!

Walked passed this place several times. Looked interesting. Went in tonight for a drink and tapas. I know where I will go again. Such a mix of food, drink, people and fun. Don't miss it. Food is outrageous.

“I found it great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

If you visit Plaza Mayor in Madrid it is a pity if you don't make a pit stop at Mercado San Miguel, now much more than a spot to buy cheese, cold cuts and pastries. Today it is also a place where you can taste wines, taste different tapas and mix with the crowds. It's a very lively place.
Worth a visit and walk around for the ambiance!

“Mercado San Miguel, Magnifico!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Mercado San Miguel is an oasis for the thirsty and the hungry. Within walking distance from Puerta del Sol, Mercado San Miguel offers an abundance of food, both local and international. The array of food includes everything from delicious tapas, fresh seafood, a variety of salads, excellent local wines and sangria, desserts to sweeten your palate, you name it. The place is filled with locals and tourists relaxing and enjoying a good meal. The seating is fun with tall tables to accommodate several people comfortably. The ambiance is casual and lively. We absolutely loved it and highly recommend it to others. Simpy, magnifico!!
