Madrid’s selection of restaurants would blow anyone’s mind, but it is hard to find places which are pleasant and charming with tasty menus, which is why we bring you these recommendations below. We start at La Musa de Espronceda, on the pleasant Calle Santa Isabel, where for 20 euros per person you can enjoy a hefty tapas meal to share. Fried egg in a potato basket, callos, mussels in an exquisite sauce, roasted peppers and other traditional dishes with a modern twist are just some of the options you can enjoy here. At the bar, you can also choose from a large selection of delicious pinchos in an attractive and youthful atmosphere. The actual street corner is a flavourful one, since the aforementioned restaurant is flanked by Bar Benteveo, ideal for a few beers and a snack; and the wine restaurant Mentridana, which opened its doors once again after undergoing renovation works. The new restaurant has undergone a facelift and modernised itself but it still preserves its local and authentic character. We highly recommend its beers accompanied by cured cheeses and meats.

Another street to check out is Calle Torrecilla del Leal, which is home to restaurants such as Casa Pachuco, which since 2012 has been offering modern and light food in a pleasant and casual atmosphere. El Sur is livelier and more informal and you can eat a large selection of tasty dishes without having to worry too much about the price. The dishes are ideal to share and include options such as moussaka, fried eggs with chips and mushrooms and creamy ravioli. It is located between Lavapiés and Las Letras, one of the most vigorous areas in Madrid.

Oliveto is an Italian restaurant which is tasty, cheap and nice. It offers a fantastic menu of the day for approximately 10 euros .

If you like ceviche, Mar Picante on Calle San Joaquín, 5, in Malasaña is an excellent option thanks to its lunch menu priced at 9.95 euros on weekdays and 14.95 euros on weekends, which includes starter, main course, dessert and/or coffee, serving, like we said, one of the best ceviche in the whole city. Excellent value for money.

Not far from there are two Stop Madrid restaurants: one in Antón Martín and the other on Calle León (10), both of which are well worth a visit. Next door at number 12 is Casa González, where you can eat for 20-30 euros per person in a charming place full of character immersed in one of Madrid’s most beautiful neighbourhoods.
