super location u Der the Plaza Mayor, with friendly service and the best Tortilla (Spanish omelette) in town. Great atmosphere: sit inside in winter sit outside in summer. Lots of tapas to choose from. A real must

The tortilla was perfectly cooked with incredible flavours - definitely the best I have tried. The sangria was divine and the servers were considerate and warm, making our dining experience wonderful. I would come back in a heartbeat.

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!

because "tortilla" in Spanish means something different than the Mexican one. Every time you see "tortilla" in Spain should think in an omelette, any kind of it, but an omelette. And the most popular one is the "tortilla española", the Spanish Omelette. Ok, here you...More

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
