Our Hotel told us about El Mollette which was around the corner from our hotel. Quite a limited number of Tapas but each one more than enough and cooked to perfection. The wine was very reasonable and we drank too much Rioja as usual.

Ordered the artichokes with foie, some artichokes were not warm, others were hot. Had octopus, that was not bad, but small. Iberian pork was good, but fries at bottom were not hot, sitting in pool of oil. Definitely not the best meal in Madrid.

What makes this place good is the food and the intimacy of the setting - what makes it great is that you can come back after five years' absence and get a handshake and a kiss on both cheeks. Fresh roasted artichokes with a foie...More

The special of the day - artichoke with fois gras sauce. Heaven. Rest was good. Nice atmosphere. Very small - just 6 tables. English was not a problem. Very nice.

This was hands-down the most amazing meal we had while visiting Madrid. We started with grilled asparagus, followed prawn risotto, then tuna tartare, and finally, fish cheek. We even had room for a little dessert and tried the cheesecake with vanilla cream sauce. Everything was...More

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
