The tour menu has a good price for restaurants at that area, but ham is the house's speciality, so stick with him. I've ordered melon with ham and I enjoyed it a lot, as the flavours of both balance each other. Then I ordered ragout...More

The place looks inviting. There's jamon hanging everywhere, a traditional bar with drinks food in the center at reasonable prices...but the food and service is just OK. I guess if you're a tourist it may seem cheap and fantastic in the city but if you've...More

Never been in a place like this before. Its half butchers shop, half bar. Two euro for half a pint and a sandwich. Brilliant atmosphere, bustling with people, yet still got served very quickly.

It’s a must, you can choose a great variety of wonderful jamón serrano, cheese and other things too. Great taste and excellent quality. Stop by wherever you find one, you will not regret it.

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

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
