A lot of market stands with a wide variety of the authentic Spanish food. Don't expect tourist tapas inside here. The downside is, it's still a tourist attraction and so the food and drinks are expensive here. Nice to walk around and enjoy some food and drinks to experience.

If you enjoy trying food and wine with a difference that is freshly made, culturally relevant, and tasty go here. It was so much fun walking around choosing what to eat with a glass of sangria or wine in hand, and then standing at a bench with other patrons to enjoy your prize. We talked to some interesting other international... More

Go there when you are really really hungry and you will be in heaven. The variety is huge and the quality amazing. Reminded me of hawker centers in South East Asia. Why do we not have more places like this in Europe?

All the spanish flavours are in this market. Wines, beers, cheese, calamari, fritata, sweets and a lot more flavours. If you like to have small bites from a lot of kinds of food this is the place. Preferably send someone to find a table while you are choosing food and drinks, because there are many people inside. Dont miss it.

Tapas galore, good wine stalls and beer trollies. Unique set up, grab a drink and wander around the numerous fresh Tapas stalls, buy a nibble and sit and enjoy.. If you come to Madrid, take the time to spend a hour or so late afternoon early evening to set you up for Dinner.

You must visit mercados in spain, it is nicely set, crowded most of the times, you find weird culinary stuff here but it is interesting to see, smell and taste

I really reccomend this place to any one! You can taste many kinds of tapas as well as beer and sangria ( especially white)! Keep your receipt for using toilet, otherwise you will pay again (50,-cents).

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
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.
