We ate here. Good mixed paella. Terrible carbonara and sneaky charges on bread and water but in fairness they took the chips of because of the tragic carbonara. The guys were sound and drink was reasonable

This is one of those places that you can't not visit while in Madrid. Totally worth it specially since El Mercado de San Miguel is there & I totally recommend it. You won't regret the visit.

The two restaurants are rated the lowest in the city. Glad I saw the largest Plaza, but no more than 10 minutes is needed.

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
