Restaurants in Madrid may be the most varied in all of Spain! Whether hungry denizens crave Andalusian classics like gazpacho, the majesty of Valencia paella, the Basque region’s signature take on cod, or Madrid’s own 1001 ways to make pork stew, it’s very hard to go hungry in this town or even eat the same dish twice.

Even though Madrid is miles from the ocean, cool seafood restaurants abound with fresh catches of the day that are trucked in like clockwork.

For those in need of light American cuisine, fun budget cafeterias serving items like fried eggs and simple salads are rarely far away, and all Madrid restaurants offer a prix fixe menu that is often a very economical way to fill up before or after exploring the city. Keep in mind that the menú turístico, often offered at lunch, can be quite large, but those with hearty appetites will find it a great value.

Trendy international eateries, while not as prevalent as many other European capitals, are also plentiful, with heavy emphasis on Latin American, North African, Middle Eastern, and Asian restaurants.
