Eating in Madrid

Madrid has become one of Europe’s culinary capitals and its atmospheric barrios are crammed with taverns, tapas bars and worldclass restaurants beloved by locals.




The Mercado de San Miguel is one of Madrid’s oldest markets

La Latina is Madrid’s best barrio (district) for tapas. Head to the streets around Calle de la Cava Baja. Here you’ll find Almendro 13, a charming tavern where locals queue for traditional tapas with an emphasis on quality rather than frilly presentation (; Calle del Almendro, 13; 1-4pm & 7.30pm– midnight Mon–Fri, 1-5pm & 8pm– 1am Sat & Sun; tapas from £3).


One of Madrid’s most beautiful markets, the Mercado de San Miguel has undergone a major renovation and is now an inviting space strewn with tables. The stalls are outstanding and you can order tapas and more substantial plates at most of the bar-counters (; Plaza de San Miguel; 10am–midnight Sun–Wed, 10am–2am Thu–Sat; tapas from 75p).
