Food and drink
The idea is that you get what you fancy from different stalls - seafood, cheese, canapes, charcuterie, oysters etc - along with wine, beer, draught vermouth or whatever else you fancy, then find a space at one of the high tables in the middle. I like the Argentinian empanadas (spicy pasties) and usually have a plate of prawns from Morris, which doesn't look as fancy as some of the other stalls, but is cheaper and great quality.
Nearly always busy with all sorts of people. Quite touristy sometimes, but never overwhelmingly so. It's become quite a celeb hangout too.
A lot of the stallholders are experts in the produce they are selling.
Right by the Plaza Mayor and a few minutes' walk from the Royal Palace.
If you just want a couple of canapes and a glass of wine, you could spend less than 5 euros, but it is very easy to get through 20-30 euros without really trying.
