Local neighborhood restaurants

Hi. Any suggestions on local, neighborhood restaurants that are consistently good and won't be filled with tourists and be overpriced. Does not even have to be any particular neighborhood.

Thanks

If I tell those restaurants will be filled with tourists like you :))

A couple of clues in the center of Madrid:

El Cogollo on Calle Hileras 6

El Jardin on Calle Calderon de la Barca 8, only for lunch, closed at evening.

Thank you for sharing your secrets. I won't tell :)

I actually lived in Madrid but that was 50 years ago.

We love it here and have returned about 15 times (3 times in the last year alone).

Meant to add that we prefer a restaurant to a tapas bar for this post. Thanks again.

Casa Lucio (Calle Cava Baja, 35; Tel. 913-653-252) is famous for its "huevos rotos" (broken eggs).

Benny,

The OP said "won't be filled with tourists and be overpriced"

Casa Lucio is touristy and expensive.

I like Casa Mono in Arguelles on Calle Tutor. Stylish decor but not too expensive and never any tourists. None of the staff seem to speak English as well which is a good sign if you want something authentic! They do have an English menu though. I know one or two people on this forum don't like it but I always take visitors to Madrid there and they enjoy it.

sorry posted by mistake.

Thank you all for your help.

We sadly leave Spain tomorrow and are hoping to possibly get to one of these today.

Since we plan on eating early we will have to see what works out.
