I would have rate the place with five stars just for the place, the food and the prices. But "El Meson del Champiñon" have a piano man who can play songs from everywhere (even Korean songs) which you can sing along.

- good food - good quantity - good quality - nice location - nicely priced. The only improvement should be quicker service and English speaking personnel.

Have some mushrooms, padron peppers and some wine for a delicious tapas stop. Tables down the back but standing at the bar is more fun. Touristy but good fun

Both had mushrooms simply cooked with a bit of chorizo, parsley and lemon juice. 2 chatos of red wine in an olde worlde atmosphere. Staff are very friendly.I know it's touristy but, you can't fault the mushrooms or the service.

This place is awesome. Get a cup of cheap but delicious sangria and a plate of the mushrooms and you're set. This is some of the best food and drinks we had during our stay in Madrid.

We came here for what they are known...mushrooms. So it's small mushrooms stuffed with chorizo, garlic and I believe a little parsley. They're cooked in oil and that's it. They've got trays upon trays of this stuff and it's all I ate when I stopped in. Don't bother eating anything else here because if you made it here, eat what... More

This was part of our Devour Tapas Tour and it was one of my favorites, the Mushroom Tapas were so good. I believe there were dining seats in the back but we stood at the bar and had our tapas and Sangria while standing. I do recommend this place, great service and good food.

Do not miss the small cave bar under the Plaza Meyor. The whole staff is friendly, welcoming and a blast to be around. Try the Sangria and Mushrooms!

Great little place!! Food was wonderful! Live music too!! make sure you have a few euros to tip the man, he will not ask you again if you do it the first time and he is worth it. One server running the show and he is also great! This place is a must if you like olives and mushrooms!

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.
