Best tortilla in town. If you walk past you wouldn't go in. But I promised it is the best tortilla ever. Must go. Super traditional and simple. It's not a tourist trap.

Taken here by a local guide. Not the sort of place we'd have visited on our own as the entrance is down a corridor leading to the caverns under the Plaza Major. Great tasting tortilla made just from eggs and potato. Highly recommended a visit.

Of course among the tourist places in the area around Plaza Mayor, however just like everywhere else in Madrid the trick is to order the right thing. And here the tortilla with sangria is a must, nothing more and nothing less!

I visited this restaurant, which is under the Plaza Major, as part of a tapas tour. It was very unusual, literally being built in the caves below the city. The service and food were excellent and I would highly recommend it.

first tortilla in my life, I can't complain. This place was perfect, the restaurant was what I looking for. Local special plate, waiter kind and fast. The sangria was good too. Great restaurant

We visited Meson de la Tortilla as part of our Spanish Tapas Madrid tour. It was cool to be "underground" in a cave-like atmosphere. The pacon peppers were awesome. The spanish tortilla was delicious -- obviously their specialty.

I had two different kind of tortillas in this place: one with chorizo and one with onion. Both were very very tasty. It is not neccesarily the best tortilla I had in Spain, but it may be close.

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
