Madrid recommendations requested - with vegetarian options

Hi friends,

I am visiting Madrid for the first time. I am accompanied by my partner who is also here for the first time and in Spanish speaking.

We are staying in the Plaza Santa Ana area. We are looking for suggestions for restaurants that have a decent quality and variety of vegetarian options in the menu. Eggs and cheese are fine and all vegetables, bread too.

We have tried restaurant artemesia which is good but looking for other options too.

Also any suggestions for a great restaurant that serves Tapas with some vegetarian options and also the same for Paella.

Finally, on a separate note, which is truly the best chocolatier? We tired cafe valor and it was below expectations, not bad just not great.

  1. Unfortunately, I don't have an answer for you but I will be visiting Madrid in 2 weeks, staying in the same area, and have the same request. If you find places that you liked, will you please post them? We do eat shellfish, but not meat and very little fish. How did you like Artemisia? It's on my list of places to try. Thanks!
