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.
every european city has there own version of the grand via. and the grand via in madrid doesnt take a back seat to anyone. you can shop, eat, and go to the theatre. and take in the beautiful spanish architecture
This historic square has a lot to tell . It is also a center of the old town of Madrid - today as the shopping area and restaurant area is around this place it is a very good starting point for walking through the city
this area is is so beautiful and on a sunny day you can take in the beauty of the parks , the plaza, the palace , the cathedral and the beautiful spanish architecture. we enjoyed this area after returning from toledo spain
Very nice place where you are best to reserve in advance, we enjoyed a full lunch with croquets, asparagus, antichoc, the piglet as main course, (chicken was also very good). Service was good and efficient. Recommended.
I visited La Candela with my husband one rainy Saturday afternoon in January and would safely say we had the best meal...ever!
Not only is the food to die for, the experience is simply fantastic by the way in which the staff make you feel. Everyone is friendly and informative and guide you through the experience with a touch of...
"One of my favourite go-to places to eat in the city"
reviewed 2 days ago by Alessandro S
I have never been disappointed by any aspects of my visits to this restaurant. What the place lacks in size, makes up for great value and a nice atmosphere with the staff being very friendly and make you feel comfortable. The Menú is great value for the food that you can get for €10 in such a central location. I...
We were fortunate to celebrate my son's 13th birthday at Algarabia. The chef, Pilar, worked with me months prior to the event to plan a perfect menu for twelve. Each Rioja course was better than the next. The croquettes, pate, soup, fish, veal and dessert were gourmet delicacies. Pilar's sister, Isabel, works the front part of the restaurant and makes...
Wow, what a great weekend in Madrid and made all that more special by having a fantastic time at Amici's. Great location, food was fantastic and we were made to feel special by all the staff. Amici's has a great vibe, relaxed and caters well for families but also extremely attentive with some great dishes on the menu too. We...
