Visited this restaurant with my wife. Servings were tiny, we had a hard time finding the scallops amongst the mushrooms. The waiter was unfriendly. How the manager had the nerve to charge EUR 18 for that is beyond my imagination. If you eat t he bread be prepared to pay 1,50 € for 2 pieces as "servicio"!! 47,50€ for :... More

This place caught our attention as a more casual spot and there was a lot of movement from locals. As we enjoyed a few drinks here we also tried the house specialty of really good mushrooms and also the zucchini flowers were really intersting to try as well. A place for those really interested in or mushroom lovers.

A MUST if you love mushrooms. The rest is fine, as in a good Spanish bar: pulpo, morcilla con confit de cebolla ... Staff nice and even joking.

Small, authentic restaurant, crowded with locals, old school waiter and excellent choice of mushrooms (delicious morchella for example).

I returned to this restaurant with some friends from abroad in the hope of sharing my past experience with them, and was shocked at how things had changed. Servings were tiny, we had a hard time finding the foie amongst the mushrooms. How the manager had the nerve to charge EUR 18 for that is beyond my imagination. A total... More

Will never go back there again. Had been to El Cisne Azul about 4 times before and it was very good. Now it is a complete rip-off. The portions are half of what they were while the prices are twice as high. The ‘boletus with foie’ had only a minuscule portion of foie while before they served a nice piece.... More

I came to have lunch with a friend. All girls. EVERYTHING was good. It's all about mushrooms. We had the zucchini flowers in wine salt and truffles oil. SPECTACULAR appetizer. For lunch I had the boletus mushroom with scallops, my friend had them with foie. We both loved our food. It was great to know that the Prince and Princess... More

Staying in Chueca

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
