“In this place you can take the "traditional" bocadillo de calamares. A must for all the people that visits the centre of Madrid.”

“This should be your choice if you want to eat in the Plaza Mayor itself. I mean, eating in Plaza Mayor is pretty cool. It's very kitsch , but it can also be cool. This is one of the ancient restaurant around here. Old school. I eat here with my wife every month or so and I never complained. I am very strict with food, so trust me. I also don't choose a table directly on the Plaza Mayor, because that's a very touristic thing to do and I prefer to eat in the inner yard. There is a fantastic tartare. ”

Bar
“ Bocadillo de calamares!!! Parada obligada si vienes a visitar Madrid (o si eres de Madrid, tienes delito si no lo conoces) y quieres tomarte una buena caña de cerveza, unas bravas y sobre todo un buen bocadillo de calamares para abrir el apetito. Trato cortes y educado que no quita que disfrutes lo máximo posible de uno de los lugares emblemáticos de alrededores de la Plaza Mayor. ”
