Our hotel front desk recommended this place. Not fancy in any way, but excellent tapas variety at low prices. Obviously a local favorite. Service was average for the area, and friendly enough but limited English. Excellent jamon portions. We ate there several times.

Very nice Tapas Bar and restaurant. Beer prices are competitive and complimentary snack come with the beers you buy. In addition there are specials including Tapas and beer at keen price. Staff are friendly and helpful. Seems to be mainly frequented by locals.

We stopped in for tapas (pinchos morunos) and a drink. Great service. In addition to the tapa we ordered, the man behind the counter gave us one for free, plus some bread. Both tapas tasted good but not the best we've ever had. The total...More

The service was professional. Food was ok. One waiter can speak little English that would cater your needs. Many locals frequent the place as it offers varied traditional Spanish foods. There is free WiFi but quite poor. Accessible as it is located on the main...More

many restaurants, cafes and bars in the centre of Madrid (and certainly within easy walking distance of the Gran Via) are touristy and overpriced. But while Valdemeso does seem to get the occasional foreign visitor most of its customers seem to be locals who drop...More

If you want real spanish food de la casa you should visit this place. It's more like a bar-restaurant. You can feel the real spanish climate. Waiters shouting, people talking, lots of noise - I love it! :) it's not a place for family dinner...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
