Great place to sit outside and have a beer or a glass of wine and some tapas. Also good for lunch and/or dinner. Try the Padrón Peppers with a cold beer. For a heartier meal the Caldo Gallego here is excellent. The best thing is that although in the Sol district it is away from the crowded area. Highly recommended.

I was here during Christmas holidays and some friends suggested this bar. When everything was packed and over priced in the city center and all arround Sol, this place turned out to be a one of the best bars I ever went for tapas in Spain. We paid a grand total of 28 euros for 3 people and we bought... More

It was a festival weekend, and every where there were crowds, and street hawkers, and excitement. We were quite frankly worn out when we walked into Neuvo Galicia. From the outset, we were treated like old friends (Okay, not Spanish speaking, but nevertheless friends). Given my very limited Spanish, we selected and the waitress augmented our choices. The food tickled... More

Although the place looks modest, don't let it fool you. It's not like all of the other places around Puerta Del Sol or Plaza Mayor with pictures of food in the front window. We sat outside, there were some locals also enjoying some food and drink there. Our waiter knew a bit of English, and was very helpful. It was... More

We looked for this place on the first night we were in Madrid having read excellent reviews. However on looking in from the outside we thought it looked dingy & very caferteerish so we started to look for another restaurant but then we thought, well why not and I'm 'soooo' glad we did, as it was excellent. We had calamari,... More

We kept returning to this little restaurant, packed with locals. Great staff, freshly prepared food and a buzzing atmosphere. A fraction of the price we paid in an upmarket rerstaurant and better quality. It's crowded, but they always manage to squeeze an extra table in. Our favourite spot in Madrid.

I really avoid tourist traps if I can. This was recommended as a 'local' place, and boy was it. These are the salt of the earth that eat here, what ever that means. Good hard working folk in work clothes. The food was real. The chicken tasted like chicken. The pork, it tasted like pig. Too many places have to... More

The friendly manager of this place ushered us into two adjacent chairs on a 4-seat table despite many other spots being free. Being near the door meant periodic blasting of cold air throughout our meal. The food consisted of reasonably filling portions of average quality. It was strange not knowing how the meals were meant to be delivered to our... More

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.
