About Mercado San Miguel, Madrid
Madrid’s oldest market gets more beautiful and interesting by the decade! The city renovated it, but everyone was still surprised that it made such a great public space. The architecture is cool enough – Beaux-Arts in steel and iron an glass. But the food… ah, the food. Pastries, tapas, wine and everything in between – it’s 33 stalls of sheer delight.
Heck, they even put up their own steel tables for picnics! The people watching is excellent – tourists from around the centre of the city descend here like flies, and you should definitely join those ranks. The best past is, it’s open late into the night!

It was a nice place. First, I thought it is a bad idea to come here for a dinner. It looked crowded and too many small shops.. But I was wrong! I had a super dinner (in fact the best one) during my 1 week stay in Madrid. So you can find different tapas with almost everything! Meat, vegetarian, vegan, etc. My favorite is a dish based on chickpea with lamb and cow meat. I do not remember the name but it was delicious!
A great place to visit at night for some drinks and a bite to eat. It's an impressive looking covered market where you can order from any of the multiple vendors and eat at central tables. There are a variety of cuisines on offer from seafood, to pan asian, to desserts along with plenty of options for beer and wine - all of high quality. This place can be very busy so expect to have to stand for a little while before a table becomes free. Prices are also comparatively high but English is widely spoken and most of the menus reflect this.
It is a great place to find the tapas you like; thereafter you can take note of them and order it at restaurants away from the Plaza Mayor area. We got some amazing Sangria Blancas that is made with what we think is pineapple juice. It gets super busy. You kinda have to squeeze yourself in during busy hours. It is one of those places if you see a couple finishing their meal/drinks, you sneak and jump into their spot. Will definitely be back.
Fantastic selection of local food and drink. If you want to taste test a wide variety of typical foods and drinks, get down to Mercado de San Miguel. The rich selection of foods are guaranteed to get you salivating. Oh, and the atmosphere and vibe will not disappoint you. Don't expect to taste all of these lovely treats on a budget though... Be sure to take an ample supply of Euro's with you.
If there were 7 stars I would gladly mark them all! Yes this is an absolute 'must visit' while in Madrid! The days are better as the produce is freshly made and put out! The salads etc are not displayed at nights! And by 11:00 pm it starts wrapping up! Go for lunch- the different types of tapas( mostly all around 1/1.50 €! The beers and the wines are inexpensive and it's a great place to spend an hour! Stop by on way to a big lunch for cocktails here and lovely variety of tapas! Super friendly people! Glasses can be taken all over the complex and left anywhere!
