There a few locations and while in Madrid, I ate at two different locations. The beer, food and the service was all unique and fun and tasty. I recommend it for the experience and if on a budget, you can not go wrong. It is crowded so the better times to go are during off peaks times around early AM... More

We had a few bad experiences with cheap eats in Madrid, so i remembered this place from the last time I went. This is typical spanish food, autenthic, home made, super tasty, of excellent quality. Service is classy and competent, makes you feel at home. As a mediterrean, I couldn't ask for anything better than this.

When we first saw the first Museo Del Jamon not far from the Prado , we were impressed by the marketing . We then found another one at the Puerta del Sol and concluded that it was a chain restaurant . Very good food but it takes quite a while to be served !

Great place to eat cheap, you have a great, big sandwiches for 1e, you have a 0,3 beer for 90 cents. If you order just a beer you also get tapas (free snacks with your drinks). People usually stand around, but you can also find a place to sit. If you are visiting Madrid, you should not skip this place.

This place is split into a ground floor tapas bar and upper floor restaurant. We didn't make any reservation and have to queue for 20 min before getting a table for lunch. The place was packed more with locals. The main attraction here is of course jamon. It was good, but not the best we had tasted while in Spain.... More

I love Jamon Serano and Jamon Iberico.There was many gusts and rushed at standing counter on ground floor, however we took a dinner with table on 1st floor. This is the typical restaurant in Madrid, so you must visit there.

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.

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.
