I visited this restaurant, which is under the Plaza Major, as part of a tapas tour. It was very unusual, literally being built in the caves below the city. The service and food were excellent and I would highly recommend it.

first tortilla in my life, I can't complain. This place was perfect, the restaurant was what I looking for. Local special plate, waiter kind and fast. The sangria was good too. Great restaurant

We visited Meson de la Tortilla as part of our Spanish Tapas Madrid tour. It was cool to be "underground" in a cave-like atmosphere. The pacon peppers were awesome. The spanish tortilla was delicious -- obviously their specialty.

I had two different kind of tortillas in this place: one with chorizo and one with onion. Both were very very tasty. It is not neccesarily the best tortilla I had in Spain, but it may be close.

Mesón de la Tortilla is located really close to Plaza Mayor, the attention was really nice and the waiters were very friendly (which seems to be rare in Madrid, they tend to be rude with customers in most places). If you come to this place...More

The tortilla (or omelet) was incredible here. Unfortunately, that is all we had. It was one of the best egg dishes we had while in Spain.

Visited this restaurant as part of a tapas tour. The restaurant ambience is fairly basic and seems to be made in almost a tunnel. One one needs to bend and go to different parts of the restaurant. Once inside, the food is great.. It serves...More

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
