an absolute rip off !!! if you are a foreigner don't go there. I live just down the road and the owner/till operator must have thought I was a foreigner. 1 Jarra, 1 small sangria and a chocolate milkshake (in a small bottle) ... all for the incredible (not) price of 14 Euros!! They use an old type of till... More

The only good thing about this place was the view! There is no manu at all so they charge you as they like. For same breakfast you will pay half of the price if yuo go to caffe principe which is next door to this filthy overpriced place. Do not go there

We were on our way to the National Palace and stopped here for breakfast. The place was totally empty. We each ordered fried eggs with bacon, orange juice and cafe con leche. Total cost was 23 euros. Fried eggs meant submerging the eggs into a deep fryer. The eggs were fried to a crisp. The cafe con leche was lukewarm.... More

Cafetería para clavar a los turistas incautos. Mal servicio, mal desayuno (frío) y precios de Tokio. Cafeteria to trick unsuspecting tourists. Bad service, bad breakfast (cold) and Tokyo prices!

We got totally ripped-off at this cafe-bar on our recent trip to Madrid. A couple of beers, 2 glasses of wine and 3 small tapas (not very nice!) and the bill was €57!!! The staff were rude and sniggering at us when they saw the look on our faces when we saw our bill which was written on a grubby... More

99% of the time I check trip advisor, this was the 1%. I found exactly what others did, rubbish food, a reluctance to supply menus with prices and someone expecting a tip. Quite why I didn't go with instinct and leave I will not know, possibly just too tired and couldn't be bothered. I kept the credit card receipt purely... More

The food wasn't bad, the place is okay, but the worst was the prices. Beware of the staff, they make everything sound cheap but charge you too much for simple things. We were completely mislead and I would not recommend this place to anyone, because you can have far better food in far better places and pay half. They like... 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.
