Eat with locals in Madrid

Hola Madrid! From tortilla to tapas to sangria, Madrid is foodie heaven! Get an authentic taste of the Spanish capital thanks to our local hosts and their immersive food tours, cooking classes, and dinners in their private homes.

See Madrid like a local!

Madrid is a foodie capital that's full of so many amazing things to do! You can explore the city on foot, taking in the beautiful sights like the Plaza Mayor and Gran Vía. A trip to Madrid wouldn't be complete without visiting the famous Prado Museum, one of the best art museums in the world!

And when it comes to food, make sure to sample the finest tapas Madrid has to offer. The Mercado San Miguel food market has a great selection of tapas, like tortilla and patatas bravas, as well as delicious local products that you can buy and enjoy. Wash them down with a glass of Vermouth and keep on exploring! In winter, make sure you visit the famous Chocolatería San Ginés to get the best churros and hot chocolate in the city.

If you're a music-lover, there are so many local tablaos where you can take in a live Flamenco performance over a pitcher of sangria and a delicious meal featuring a local specialty: suckling pig. It's a unique experience in Madrid that can't be missed!

And if you're looking to meet locals for an authentic dining experience, then one of the best things to do in Madrid is to book an Eatwith event! Our local hosts will introduce you to the best Spanish food in Madrid at a food tour, traditional lunch, typical Spanish dinner, or hands-on cooking class.
