For market lovers this is above average - including on price. Shame about tourists being so rude and not respecting the queue (I am ashamed to say a group of incredibly rude British teens from a private school made our visit there absolutely unpleasant!). Lots to buy and eat.

Lots of good choices for all appetites. It is a place to eat, not shop. Check out the pinchos of olives with every option on a toothpick and fresh seafood galore. Vegetarian choices available. Full of tourists vs locals.

Busy market, with a vast choice of different food. Cured ham, cooked fish, seafood & even a little far in the centre. Great place to visit!

I love food so this place was amazing to me. It is a collection of small shops all under one roof which are selling their produce and small tapas sized meals. There is a huge variety from fruit and vegetables, ham, sushi, cheese, cakes, chocolates etc. All reasonably priced and places to sit at tables and bars. All food is... More

Crowded, crowded, crowded! So many people come here to watch, to eat, to drink and to buy for take away. Lots of tapas, seafood, cakes,sweets, wine, beers and much more. And you can buy what you like and then sit at a table in this magnificent old building. Lively, funny and delicious - and just a little overpriced compared to... More

The locale can get very busy during the evenings. So if you prefer a less crowded opportunity to sample great food visit before 8pm. The food sold here are high quality bites (not meals), so it can be a bit pricey in comparison to what you can get around, but it is very good, specially the seafood variety. Anyone for... More

We went on a Saturday afternoon. This place is way too crowded. You're pretty much eating while standing in a crowd. It's an okay experience If you're a tourist and happen to be in the area. I would have enjoyed it more if it wasn't super crowded.

This is one of the many open space markets in Madrid. At least 15 restaurants, stalls, and bars in the space all selling tapas, wine, sweets, paella, sushi, and others. As with all tapas/pinxtos places, can be very crowded and you'll have to be pretty loud to get the attention of staff. Just stroll around and try everything. One near... More

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.
