Just off Sol and along Calle Amnistia can be found Cafe de los Austrias. It's just far enough away from the Sol's crowds, street acts, noise and bustle to give a sense of calmness. With pleasant outdoor seating, and seemingly orientated to catch the breeze...More

I had a mini tortilla as I was not so hungry. It came extra dry and in the middle was not baked at all. Like a lava cake, but this was a lava tortilla. My wife had paella and she said it was average.

We stopped in for mojitos and stayed for tapas and more mojitos! Excellent calamari, carbonara and paella! The staff really made the evening extra special as we watched the sun go down over the palace.

We had tapas at the restuarant in January. It's in a beautiful building a short walk from the palace. The waiters were lovely and the calamari was delicious!

A few minutes walk from the Royal Palace, this is an excellent little restaurant. In scorching August temperatures, we sat in the shade outside, not realising until later that the inside was beautifully air-conditioned. A plate of meatballs in spicy sauce, mixed croquettes, a Spanish...More

We wandered over to this cafe because it was near the palace and cathedral and we were thirsty. After ordering water, we decided on the mixed plate of Manchego cheese and Iberian ham. It came with little croutons and we ordered some olives on the...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
