We went out for some tapas and ended up at Meson del Champignon. You can find here a very good ambience, nice people, music, locals, foreingers... everything together. Good location near to Plaza Mayor.

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.

Outstanding visit, garlic mushrooms are a must try! Sangria hits the right spot. After your tour and Tapas bar, good way to spend the evening!

Absolutely delicious mushrooms. We stood at the bar and ate them. Meant to go back for a second visit but ran out of time. They come with lovely crusty bread. Only downside is that the wine comes in a stemless glass.

A historic location in the heart of Madrid, the "House of Mushrooms" has made me rethink my previously negative view on the ground fungus. Stuffed with garlic, Iberian bacon, and other spices, the house mushrooms are definitely going to impress!

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
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.
