“Gourmet Style Market”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

I dont really know how to describe this market... It is like one big gourmet market where you can taste, in litlle serves, a little bit of each type of cuisine: japanese, italiana, assador, seafood, tapas, desserts, wines... you have a stand for each one of these on the 1st floor. Downstairs you have a fair, where you'll find the fresh produces to bring to your home. Everything is neatly arranged and exposed like if you where in a museum. It is a feat to the eyes.
On the 2nd floor you have a restaurant and bar with a nice terrace, that even on those cold winter days is warm and cosy. Here the waiters are busy and (maybe therefore) not so nice.

“Great foodie destination”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Walking in, you realize how big this space is. It's huge.

First floor is a food market, lots of selections, great looking produce.

Second floor is tapas stands, sweet and savory alike.

Crowd is mostly locals, mainly young folks many on dates, not too many tourists.

Less hectic than San Martin.

“Feast for the eyes”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This market is located the really colorful neighborhood of Chueca. The first floor is a traditional market with different stands for meats, fish, fruits, charcuterie, etc. There is also a slightly hidden Cava bar that has some really excellent croquettes. The second floor is full of specialized tapas stands, all of which are delicious, although they get quite crowded at lunch so you're typically left to eat standing up. The third story has a restaurant with a bit of a limited menu, but the food is very good, and an outside terrace for cocktails. Overall a really fun place for a weekend lunch.

“Calm but charming...”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

This location is suggested as a quieter, less "touristy" alternative to Mercado San Miguel. It is smaller and a good 15 minute walk from the major hub of the city but it is definitely worth a visit. Like other restaurants, this collection of food outlets serving everything from Italian to Greek starts getting crowded closer to Spanish dinner time (9 pm) so its best to arrive around 8 for dinner to grab a place. Great selection of food and reasonable prices, only downside being the bathrooms which are located in the restaurant above, where you have to walk through the terrace and all of the restaurant each time you need to go. Give this place a try if you're tired of frequenting San Miguel and want a more hassle-free experience.

“A foodie's paradise!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Much less of a tourist attraction than Mercado de San Miguel, this is the place where the Madridians shop for their cuts of meat and fresh produce.

Several tapas options to choose from, and the complimentary wifi is an added bonus!
