My boyfriend and I ate here in August. We went for the 30 euro deal which is for two people. They did not provide an English menu but the waiter translated as much as he could and obviously we did not mind anyway! The deal includes some olives to begin. We were then given bread which we paid extra for... More

The place is really nice and the staff is friendly. But, if you're searching for a typical Madrid's spirit, maybe this isn't the right ambiance. La Musa is more a like bobo-hipster, as you'd find in Paris. The decoration is nice and cosy. The "bombas" (potato&meat) are really good, but the chicken "na brasa" (bbq/smoked) is not amazing, but still... More

Craft beers are sold there with side snacks. Given taht it is a tapas bar, you can also eat there. The interior design is creative. The staff is friendly, likes to smile and take care of you.

Locals may recommend not going out before 10pm for a meal in Madrid...but by 11.30pm, when we arrived from the airport, most places nearby had stopped serving food - except La Musa. We were welcomed into this friendly and colourful neighbourhood bar and the full menu was produced. Very authentic caipirinhas in hand, we could then take our time to... More

We were looking for a light lunch close to the apartment we had rented in Call de San Andres, and tried La Musa. Pleasantly surprised. The small place was crowded with locals, loud music and had an inexpensive choice on the menu. We had the pork loin with apple and gespacho soup (in a glass).Freshly prepared and accompanied by glass... More

We just had a great meal of tapas. We tried a variety of dishes and all were well presented and tasted divine. Easy to find and would highly recommend a meal at La Musa if visiting the centre of Madrid.

Thank Millettd

Neighborhood Profile
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 the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
