We liked it so much we had it twice! Atmosphere is boisterous with live performance and a gruff-looking but actually very friendly owner (?) Order the peppers to go with your mushrooms!

We found out about this place during a Food Tour which we took in Madrid (also recommended as well); the mushroom and peper were SO GOOD that we had to come back 2 more times, specially the last night before leaving Spain.

Came for lunch after exploring the surrounding areas. Next to Plaza Mayor. The mushrooms were what caught our eye. The other tapas are standard to most surrounding restaurants. Their mushrooms are the champions. Well worth a try.

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. At the end of the dinner, the whole dining room were singing in good companion. We gave the piano... More

- 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

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.
