So you want traditional meaty Madrilenian food, but your partner is vegetarian? No problem.

A stalwart on the Madrid restaurant scene, La Botilleria de Maxi is unpretentious and oozes character. It’s a good choice for a cheap sitdown meal when sightseeing or for a late lunch on Sunday after the Rastro flea market.
