Went there a little after 8pm and place was pretty empty. Great, no line! Sat at the bar hoping to get some hot yummy churros. Churros came, but they weren't hot and tasted like they were cooked in old grease. Chocolate also tasted off. Two bites and the rest was left uneaten. So sad, cuz I really wanted to support... More

This is a chain type of cafe but don't let that scare you! The service is not great, it definitely seemed like our waiter was annoyed that we sat in his section. But don't let that bother you! Make sure to try the chocolate sampler! It's a great way to try a variety of chocolates and they even have a... More

They have the bizarre rule that if one of your friends is arriving late, even though there are plenty of empty chairs around - 5 free then, 1 empty at our table too - even 1 table available next to us, the latecomer is forced to seat by himself at the bar. I guess with that rule, they will always... More

This was not a bad service,this was a bizarre service,as they didn't know exactly what to say and what to do. With a little bit of training,this would get better. The mediterranean chocolate was tasty,the churros not so much. Not as hot as I expected and a bit oily. I won't say "don't go there!" but I'm sure that one... More

I had the worst customer service experience in Madrid here. Churros were really cold and oily, all you could taste was oil, chocolate dipping was also very cold and too thick. You need to be very careful with service staff here, they're really dodgy, they purposely over charged me and gave me the wrong bill. They thought I wouldn't check... More

The chocolate is very special and tasty, but is not the normal cup of chocolate, look like a jelly (jajaja). You must to taste it. There are not much options, but is a good place. Also the chocolate shop inside is very good, for a special gift.

Was looking forward to this place on a recommendation but it was the worst visit of my trip. Bad service - got the order wrong and couldn't be bothered. Staff so unfriendly and quality was below average. Don't waste your money. Go elsewhere!!!

We compared another place with Valor and found Valor's chocolate thicker and tastier and so we think Valor is the best.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
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.
