This is not your typical tapas place. We actually ate here 2 nights for early dinner. NO Siesta here. First the sangria was some of the best, not just some wine and fruit. We went for the pitcher. We had the bomba (potato with ground...More

Like many foreign visitors to Madrid, we wanted to try the local tapas, eat early by local standards (7pm) but avoid the overly tourist places. La Musa was a short walk from our IBIS hotel and was perfect. They serve our favourite beer (Paulaner wheat)...More

An impromptu lunch stop and it was a great choice. We had the potato stuffed with meat, calamari and the tempura prawn and avocado. All were delicious. Very popular with a great atmosphere.

Fun atmosphere with tasty tapas! We were there on Saturday at 11pm and still had to wait 20 mins for a table. Good music and the staff was friendly. Try the tapas from the spanish section!

There are a few Musa restaurants in Madrid. We went to Musa la Latina and Musa Malasana. Both were excellent. This review will focus on Malasana. Every dish we had was excellent. Our server, Javier, was helpful, charming, and welcoming. This is definitely a place...More

Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music
venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair,
narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the
center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends
outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents,
and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on
the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as
many other parts of the city, but this only adds to
