A market place with good food

It's a indoor marketplace with many different booths. There are beer, wine, desserts, tapas, oyster bar, and more. If you are nearby, you may want to grab a bite in there.

The food or tapas here is amazing ... variety and unique.. it's good for groups of friends to hang around and go about tapas tasting if you aren't sure of where to begin

This covered Market contains plenty of different food stands offering local specialties made of fresh and quality ingredients. The prices are a bit high for a food market experience but the food quality is equally higher. A smart alternative for any tapas seekers. Expect some queue at all stands but not more than if you had to go to a... More

Have eaten here on numerous occasions, at different times of the day. Lunch is always heaving. Quieter later in the afternoon and early evening. Busy late evenings at the weekends. There is food here for everyone. The stuffed olives are a must. But if you like ham, cheese, seafood, fruit, deserts, wine, beer.... it's all here, in the most exquisite... More

For market lovers this is above average - including on price. Shame about tourists being so rude and not respecting the queue (I am ashamed to say a group of incredibly rude British teens from a private school made our visit there absolutely unpleasant!). Lots to buy and eat.

Lots of good choices for all appetites. It is a place to eat, not shop. Check out the pinchos of olives with every option on a toothpick and fresh seafood galore. Vegetarian choices available. Full of tourists vs locals.

Busy market, with a vast choice of different food. Cured ham, cooked fish, seafood & even a little far in the centre. Great place to visit!

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
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.
