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.

The tortilla (or omelet) was incredible here. Unfortunately, that is all we had. It was one of the best egg dishes we had while in Spain.

This is a very old, no frills restaurant where, as their name implies, is known primarily for their spanish omelettes which they call tortillas. One omelette can feed 2-3 people if you treat it like tapas. Their chorizo sausage is also superb. Go there to...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
