We visited this on a Sunday before Christmas and it was unbelievably busy. Even on Monday a working day, it was very busy at lunchtime with Spanish family diners. The food variety is amazing. And it's worth going just for a look of the iron and glass structure as well as the contents and the people!

Lots and lots of busy little stands all under one roof, banging out food and drinks of every variety, meat, fish, cheese, coffee, wine, beer. All great little speciality stalls, there was a lady just making amazing mojitos on a ting stand, oyster stand stunning. The place has a beautiful hum/buzz about it. Get there soon!

Nice looking building, close to Plaza Mayor. Tapas looks great, but are a bit pricey.Worth a visit there.

Definitely an interestinf experience for a foodie like me as you can try several different flavours under one roof! Definitely recommended!

Went here on a public holiday so it was very busy. Maybe a little overpriced but you're paying for the atmosphere and a great building. Great section of food and alcohol available. Will definitely go again next time I'm in Madrid.

A place to view and eat anything you want typical from Spain. The variety of desserts is heavenly and the paella super delish.e Extremely busy but excellent service from the vendors that do their best to satisfy the hundreds of tourists. Love it, despite how full of people the place was.

It's a great market for some different and local food with nice drinks. However, if you go after noon it'll be hard to even walk around. We first went there and left in 10 minutes because it was too packed to think about anything. We returned the next day around 11:30 for brunch and it was much better.

Thank Julia M

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood 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.
