Madrid this weekend - Great eats near Hotel Plaza Mayor


Am visiting Madrid this weekend. Staying at the Hotel Plaza Mayor -Calle Atocha, 2

Any recommendations for restaurants/tapas bars around the area. Really really do not want to be stuck in a tourist trap. I appreciate any responses. Thank you

  1. Just do a search on this board as there are tons of recommendation on restaurants/tapas/pinxtos places in Madrid. I would stay away from places in the Plaza Mayor. You're right in the tourist zone therefore, expect visitors but you will rarely find 'tourist traps" recommended on this board.
