What travellers are saying
- Every time we go to Madrid, we always visit Mercado San Miguel.
Still remember when it opened in 2009.
It was so nice and the food was so great.
Over the years it has become less attractive due less appealing food.
This meant that we hardly ever ate there for the last 5-8 years even though we
always visited it during our stays in Madrid.
This time it was like being back around 2010 and the food was really fantastic.Written 27 November 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Grerat place to try different foods, lots of tapas. Restaurant on the top floor gets crowded pretty fast. Bottom floor has a great selection of hams and cheeses, and mistura ice cream which was great.
The Italian place was great, and the fish place on the 2nd floor too. Lots of people, plenty of places to sit and chat!Written 30 June 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Huge market. Lots of stalls and antique shops, heaven for people who wants to buy curious and old items. You can find clothes, stuff for the home and places where you can drink or eat something in there, too. It's worth going in the morning, after that it usually gets crowded. In any case, it's worth going there at least once.Written 22 April 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This street was one of the highlights of our trip to Madrid. It might only be a relatively short street but it’s one of the best. It’s a warren of tapas bars, with around 50 or so in the one small area. We started at one end and made our way along them, picking and choosing in a random sort of way. The street follows the curves of the original 12th-century city wall and in some of the bars like Posada del Dragon, you can still see remains of some of the wall.
Our top three places were:
1. La Concha
2. Pousada del Dragon
3. Casa Luca
La Concha was our absolute favourite. A tiny place full of character that served an amazing vermouth cocktail and complimentary tapas. They make their own vermouth which they sell at €12 a bottle. We left with our backpack clinking because we'd bought two.
GETTING THERE: 5 min walk from Plaza MayorWritten 10 December 2020
- I was mostly very impressed with the cleanliness of the store, the huge selections of clothing in all sizes and the ease of trying clothing on without huge lines. Every member of staff was most helpful.
My only disappointment was the home section which basically barely exists. I was looking for gifts to take home and was somewhat scratching around for non clothing itemsWritten 1 February 2020
- You should always go where the locals recommend. So we went to La Lopez in Mercado Anton Martin. The food is excellent, ad is the wine and beer. The staff are really friendly and very welcoming. Would definitely recommend.Written 11 March 2022
- Great market, very friendly with fantastic range of produce. Craft stalls, food stalls, bars etc. Much less touristy than San Miguel (less flashy, cheaper and more authentic).Written 27 July 2022
- Hi everybody. The Plaza de los Pintores is a plaza in the heart of Madrid where local artist gather and show their paintings. Sorry to say that at the moment the plaza isnot open due to the virus. They hope to re-open soon.Written 5 December 2020
- This is a Sunday market in Plaza Mayor. There are many vendors here selling stamps and coins. Very interesting to look at.Written 9 February 2020
- We went up to the top floor where they had lots of gourmet food. I found some Spanish cookies and candies that will be good gifts for family and friends back home.Written 23 July 2019
- Great ham, superbe selection… service ok, fast and efficient. Not a super friendly touch but got what I needed. The ham was real nice, properly served with a good house wine.Written 21 October 2022
- We went to this Market while walking around the streets of this lovely area. This is quite a large market place. There are numerous shops. There are fashion shops and deli shops and everything else in between. We did not actually buy anything but the prices looked quite reasonable and would buy almost anything from here if the need arose.Written 9 July 2019
- This is the best market I have been to in Madrid. It is not a tourist market at all but a market for everyday food shopping at much more reasonable prices. There are a few cafes around the market too.Written 17 July 2018
- We wanted to get away from the touristy mercado experience. Mercado Barcelo fit the bill perfectly. We had a lovely lunch with locals (no English menu) on the top floor at Cafe Barcelo and enjoyed roaming the floors to admire the fruit, vegetable, fish and meat stalls. Noted that the Cafe advertised desayuno (breakfast), which if we'd knoiwn earlier would have saved a lot of money on the okay but expensive hotel breakfas.Written 6 January 2020
