Nice place to have something small to eat and drink, also buy jamon. Prices are acceptable and location is central.

Good, simple food at very inexpensive prices. Sandwiches and cold cuts, soup and full plates! Beer and wine. It's a bit cheaper if you eat at the bar, which is also good if you're in a hurry.

The mtj close to placa del sol is probably the most crowded of the city. We were attracted seeing it always so full, and we soon understood that it was because of the prices. Nevertheless we got a very nice Plato de queso y jamon,...More

good food, I can see not just a tourist joint (which usually fare well for food quality) in that there are clearly quite a lot of 'local' spanish clients too. A word of advice to those visiting the one near the museums the spanish style...More

You eat and drink standing and the place is not clean but that's part of the experience...sandwiches and beers are ok (and super cheap!) and the atmosphere is good..there are definitely better places in Madrid but if you are a tourist you should visit it...More

The waiter was the best, we got a table outside without booking for 10 people, the food and drinks were amazing. And all for a reasonable price. I definitely recommend this place to anyone.

It's not the only "Museo del Jamon" in Madrid, but maybe it's the most famous thanks to its strategic position in Puerta del Sol. Crowdy, service very fast and rude, we decided just to drink a beer and leave cause it was very difficult to...More

This is not a fancy place (Favorite locations were near Sol and across from Prado -- Completely different feel). It is where we would stop by daily for a couple of quick beers and a plate of ham -- Bargain at 3.90 Euro! Don't miss...More

This was my favorite restaurant in Madrid. I ate in several different ones. Service is very good. Food is great and reasonably priced. Loved the croquetas, tortilla, jamon iberico, chorizos, and sangria.

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

Yes, there are two shops near the hotel. Because I don't remember the street names, you may want to check with the front desk staff. The museo is fantastic! Note the packaging for the ham does not meet US agricultural... More
