Buzzy bistro vibe at bargain price.

Bazaar is arguably the best in Madrid of the phenomenonally successful Andilana group of restaurants, founded by Catalan entrepreneur Lluis Camos. All light, white and woody with big windows, it occupies a key corner site in Chueca. The group's concept is to offer food that looks like expensive restaurant fare at budget prices in a stylish setting, and it works. You can't book and Bazaar is invariably full, so try to get there soon after they open.

Food and drink

A bit hit and miss. Stick to the salads, pasta and steaks and steer clear of anything too tricksy. They don't have the kitchen facilities, the staff or the time to handle anything too complicated. The menu is broadly Mediterranean, with dishes such as vegetable tartlets with romesco sauce, and sea bream with algae and lime. 

Ambience

This is the strong point. Great mix of clientele with plenty to look at.

Service

This is the weak point. Staff are usually rushed off their feet.

Location

In the middle of Chueca, Madrid's gay/trendy barrio.

Price advice

There is a set menu for 9.95 euros for three courses with wine. A la carte, you'll probably spend around 20 euros.

Branches

There are several other restaurants belonging to the same group, including Ginger (Plaza del Angel 12) and La Gloria de Montera (Calle Caballero de Gracia 10). See website for details.
