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!

If you don't like mushrooms, this is not the place for you. They specialize in a stuffed grilled mushroom. Be careful, it's super hot when you get it. The staff has been working here for decades, as evidenced by pictures of them on the wall.

These have the be some of the best mushrooms you'll try - this places specialises in them so it's worth a visit. The other tapas is also very good too, albeit anything bread based wasn't particularly good as the bread was very stale. The service is very good and there was a musician playing while we were eating.

We came here as a stop on a food tour of Madrid. Be sure to get a tutorial from the proprietor on how to properly eat the 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.
