I went in Jan 19 and it was really crowded there. I was with a group of people (20 people) and the waiter couldn't even access the whole table (ok, it was a big table, but there wasn't enough space in the bar). The food...More

This street houses over a dozen tapas restaurants and bars, just within a block or two. It is right next to Plaza Mayor, very easy to get to and close to the center of the city. The area's tapas places are frequented by tourists and...More

It was very busy and lively in the night. It was fun walking around and choosing which restaurant to try. It wasn't too touristy (like Mercado San Miguel) yet, so you feel authentic eating there. If you stay more than one night in Madrid, I...More

Despite many trips to Madrid, this was my first venture down Cava Baja, and what a wonderful surprize to find great taverns and tapas of all kinds along the entire length of the street.. diversity, charm, history, fantastic eats and ambiance... starting late afternoon...must do!!!

Although it can be atmospheric, I find it overrated and crowded.....having to work my way to the bar to order the tapas is not my idea of a night out. It is popular though. I would consider a tapas tour here, though.

Very lively area, especially if you stay there. It has a lot of bustle but it's a very nice neighborhood with many options and nice bars and it's in the city center.

We walked down Cava Baja on a Tuesday, early evening (6ish). It seemed dead. A few restaurants here and there, but everything else was closed. We were a little disappointed based on what we've heard.

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

Don't do a tour. You can do this on your own. Most of these places are very small with limited seating. Some have seating downstairs, but it's more fun to sit or stand by the bar! I recommend you start at Taberna la... More
