If you want to try food by a Michelin-starred chef at less-than-Michelin prices, then Vi Cool is a good choice in Huertas. Opened by Sergi Arola to make the kind of dishes the award-winning chef loves to eat in his downtime, the menu features Catalan classics like cocas – a kind of Catalan pizza – alongside a range of hot and cold tapas dishes including patatas bravas and la bomba, a Catalan tapa of minced beef encased in mashed potato – delicious.

Specialising in the cuisine of Galicia, in northwest Spain, Taberna Maceiras is a laid-back place popular with locals that is a great pit-stop if you’re heading off to explore the nearby Reina Sofia or Prado art museums. Try the pulpo a la gallega – Galician-style octopus sprinkled with paprika or the juicy green padrón peppers washed down with a crisp, Albariño, a white wine from Galicia.

It might be a cervecería (beer house) but this traditional, century-old spot, which hasn’t changed much since it opened in 1904, is an atmospheric stop on Plaza de Santa Ana if you’re looking for a bite to eat. Grab the window seat, Ernest Hemingway’s favourite, and enjoy an ice-cold caña (little beer) bocadillos (sandwiches) or raciones (sharing plates) like like tortilla de patatas (Spanish potato omelette), albondigas (meatballs) and croquettes.

Most of the dishes at this modern tapas joint, which has been praised by some of Madrid’s finest chefs, come in full, 1/2 and 1/3 ración sizes, which means diners can mix and match and try a whole range of delicious plates. Dishes range from Spanish home-cooking classics (a cocido – a typical Madrid stew – stock with ravioli) to internationally inspired flavours (pig’s ear Thai salad). All dishes mix local Spanish ingredients with a creative and avant-garde touch.

Restaurante Casa Alberto

Bar, Restaurant, Spanish, $$$

Casa Alberto is a relic from a different era; this traditional tavern opened its doors in 1827 and has been providing locals with beers and vermouth – as well as a menu of local classics – ever since. While these days it’s less ‘local hidden gem’ and more ‘tourist central’, its front bar area is a good place for a drink and a few tapas (there is also a restaurant in the back for more formal dining). This is a good place to try Madrid specialities including callos (tripe), Madrid-style snails and pig’s ear. For the less adventurous, the menu also includes cheeses, patatas bravas and cod tapas.
