My partner and I discovered this place as part of a Madrid food tour. The mushrooms were so wonderful that we went back there again on our last day in Spain. I would possibly consider travelling to Spain again to eat these mushrooms.

We were on a foodie tour with Devour Madrid and this was our 2nd stop. Absolutely delicious mushrooms, but the main prize for me was the flash-fried Padron peppers! I could have eaten platefuls of those little things!!

So good - we ate there twice. Standing at bar is cheaper than sitting in the back roo with the odd organ player.

We came here just to try out one popular dish that we've been hearing a lot about - their champinon tapas (grilled? sauteed? stuffed mushroom) for a quick bite. The place is situated across the Mercado de San Miguel right along a side street behind Plaza Mayor where you'll find lots of restaurants and taverns (tabernas) down the alley. With... More

Small Tapas and Bar restaurant located in Plaza Mayor, Madrid. The Grilled Champignon with Jamon Serrano and Olive oil is their famous specialty. Other Tapas available and their Sangria is excellent.

Been going there since I was a kid a couple of times a year (especially when it gets colder). Over time I've seen it attract more and more tourists, as such their food offering reflects that as well. I'd highly recommend sticking to the mushrooms (which are sill fantastic) and not going for too many other 'raciones'. Pro tip: dip... More

We dropped in this cosy tapas bar to check out these mushrooms we had been hearing a lot about. The ambience was really cozy, with a spanish singer and a nice interior. Also, the waiter agreed to have a batch of vegetarian mushrooms made specially for us upon request. The tapas were tasty although a little expensive, but that is... More

First some background about myself (and my companions): although it was my first time to this establishment, my cultural background is Cuban, an ex-Spanish colony who's cuisine is nearly identical to Spain's, therefore the flavors and ingredients were not unknown or new to me in any way. However I found 2 big reasons why I couldn't get into this place:... More

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!

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.
