“A must do for any visitor to Madrid.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

I probably could of spent the whole time of my trip here. Its a great place to wander and try delicious tapas, sherries and wines. The atmosphere is bustling especially after 10pm and you can struggle to find a seat, however its just as nice to wander with tapas and wine in hand around the market.

Tapas prices vary from one euro and up, you can easily spend a lot of money here as the tapas is so tempting and at one euro you can think bargain, but once that little greedy monster starts........ The stalls vary from fish, pickles, olives, sherries, cheese and cava so there is something for everyone. A great place to go for a quick snack or for a whole evening of people watching and eating.

“Treat to your eyes, treat to your stomach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

In the heart of Madrid, a modern version of a city market. Always packed with people! Watch out for thieves! Vendors would offer you to taste their stuff - go for it! Too crowded to my taste, but would definitely recommend to visit.. and if you are lucky and patient - you may get to have a yummy sandwitch right there !
