Popular place with good quality products

Very popular place for trying the jamon, close to Sol. The downsize is that you have to stand as there are no tables and chairs. Still, it is well worth a visit.

We stopped in the first time for a quick bite, and e dead up staying for hours. This is not just a restaurant, it is an experience. If you go on a weekend (we did) you might find people waiting 3 deep to order at the counter. It moves quick. The sandwiches are off the charts good. The plates of... More

One of numerous in Madrid but my favorite one. Not a place to linger unless you choose their seated area. It is about a cheap beer ( not a cheap as it was which was a real deal) and an inexpensive Jamon sandwich. Usually packed and you have to squeeze up to the bar to order and hopefully remain.

This is a simple place, so please don't expect a 5-star dining experience. But the service, taste of the food, and everything else was somehow comparable to all of our 5-star experiences. Standing room only. Belly up to a counter spot, and just start ordering what you wish. Sausage, Beef, Fried items, Cheeses, their special of 1 Racion and 2... More

Just brilliant food, every time I visit Madrid I make an effort to go to Museo del Jamon. The walls are lined with Jamon legs that you can buy, they are smoked to perfection, the tapas is lovely and the chaos and hectic atmosphere brings out the vibrancy of Spanish food-culture. Can get very busy though!

What a great place! Simple, straight forward, packed with people The hum of everyone talking while they stand around the bar, completes the great taste of the ham as you wash it down with a beer Step in - grab a bite - and get on with your tour in the wonderful Madrid

Food is so-so. Paella too oily. Jamon a bit too thick and too dry. Tenderloin in set menu not great--overcooked. Waiters are not too helpful. They just want to finish getting your order.

Cheap sandwiches but don't expect a lot. I wouldn't recommend dishes from the card as we took one and it wasn't impressive. Nice ambience, a lot of locals.

We had some ham and cheeses here in the evening among many other people in different ages. Very affordable and tasty, so crowded and busy which were making the atmosphere fun and special. Loved this place, will definitely go here again.

have been in town for business. After good company and food with friends, I tried to have dinner on my own. Too many locations, too less experience. So I endef up, at Museo de Jamon. Food was ok, but nothing special. The service staff acted like tourist catchers. Not my cup of tea! If you do not know an other... More

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.
