Hey there. This site is a slowly-growing searchable list of my favourite bars and restaurants in Madrid. It’s aimed at travellers and hungry locals alike. There are some reviews already up – check out ‘eat & drink by barrio’ and start exploring. I’ll be adding more bit by bit.
I’ll also be blogging about Spanish food and wine.
In the meantime, if you’re about to land in Madrid, here are three tips that astute eaters should always respect in the Spanish capital.
1. Nobody ever had a good meal in Plaza Mayor. An expensive one, yes. Get a drink, enjoy the beautiful square, and eat elsewhere.
2. If it says ‘typical Spanish’, it’s not.
3. Never eat churros after 10:30am, and never ever order a chocolate milkshake to accompany (yep, I’ve seen it).
Below is a little Spotify playlist I’ve cooked up – music to plan your trip to Spain to.
Enjoy Madrid. And don’t forget to let me know how you got on.
