Only a block from Plaza Mayor and if the buzzling of the Mercado San Miguel scares you, you can sit inside or out (weather permitting) and have a beer or wine with some great tapas.Tortillas are excellent so are the croquetas and the cheeses. Mostly tourists but that doesn't make it any less than. Reasonable prices.

This is a informal, dark-brick subterranean cavelike restaurant that probably serves hundreds of tortillas espanolas a day. The staff is clearly used to tourists - they break into English and attempt to take charge of the ordering - but there were lots of locals eating there too. There is actually not a lot for the waiter to direct in a place like this where the specialty is a single item - we got some house wine and some cheese on the side, but the focus was the tortilla. Ours was superb - slightly crispy on the edges, creamy in the middle, and fresh from the skillet. Not that cheap (maybe $75 for the wine, two sodas, a tortilla for four, some cheese, and another side dish), but we never saw a menu and it's possible the native customers were getting a different price.
