Best for Dining alone - Expert review of La Musa Latina

Groovy vibe and flavoursome food at good prices.

Everyone seems to like La Musa. Good for lunch or in the evening, there's something on the menu to suit everyone and there's always a lively atmosphere.

Food and drink: 

At lunchtime they do two set menus, either a three course affair or a cheaper 'wok menu', where you choose between a bowl of noodles or rice with a range of sauces. The main menu is a mix of Asian and Mediterranean dishes. Try the fried green tomatoes and the prawn tempura with avocado. For dessert, the dulce de leche pannacotta is a winner.

Ambience: 

Laidback and relaxed. There are plenty of tables here - including outdoor tables in the square - but it does get busy. And the Junk Club in the brick-vaulted cellar is great for drinks too.

Service: 

Friendly, attractive staff.

Location: 

On Plaza de la Paja, a lovely square in the heart of medieval Madrid with lots of bars and restaurants nearby.

Price advice: 

The wok menu is 8 euros and the set lunch is 11 euros. Main courses range from 8-14 euros.

Other useful branches: 

There is another branch of La Musa in Malasana at Calle Manuela Malasana 18. The same people also run the Ojala restaurant at Calle San Andres 1, which is also in Malasana, despite the address looking very similar to that of La Musa Latina.
