I always visit this place a lot when I'm in Madrid. It always has a great atmosphere and nice crowd of people. The breakfasts are great and very good value as is the lunch deal. Friday and Saturday evenings are always packed but it's always fun having a few drinks at the bar until getting a free table. The staff... More

We stepped in on a Wednesday just before 8pm and did enjoy the tapas degustation for two, made of cold, than hot and finally dessert tapas. Excellent selected food at a very fair price, fast and attentive service. Just a great Madrid experience!

After walking around the area near our hotel, we seen La Musa. Went in for a quick beer and to sample some tapas. Bar staff helped with our tapas order, for some reason i kept saying please and thankyou in french. Food came out and each dish was as wonderful as the one before it. Kids loved it too, which...

Out of twelve or so restaurants we tried over one week this had the best tapas: Outstanding and original flavor combinations paired with good service with a smile. The "bombas" were delicious. I suggest getting a tasting menu and then adding things that you like.

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
