If you’ve ever been to Spain you know that the food in this country is fantastic. If you’ve never been, you’ve heard it. And Madrid is no exception.

My friends from home helped me put together a list with some of the best restaurants, bars and rooftops you should try if you are visiting Madrid for many different reasons. So you are hearing it from the locals! No touristic traps, just pure Spanish flavour.

¡Que Aproveche! (Means enjoy [your food] in Spanish)

Restaurants 

El Tigre – Chueca – Generic Spanish Food

Pez Tortilla – La Latina – The best tortillas in town! (and many types available)

Ochenta Grados – Malasaña – Experimental Cousine

Pim Pam – Metro San Bernardo – Modern Spanish Food

El apartamento del número 5 – Noviciado – Tapas

La Tita Rivera – Chueca – Varied Mediterranean cousine

Travel Tip: Many local restaurants in Madrid offer daily lunch Menus for very good prices. If you want to eat well and for good price, try searching for local restaurants outside of the main streets and ask for their Menú del dia!

Travel Tip: Best areas to go out for a drink and where you can find the coolest bars are Malasaña, Lavapiés and La Latina. In Calle Argumosa (Lavapiés) for example, you’ll find lots of these bars.
