The Spanish capital is full of restaurants, bars and places where you can enjoy the famous tapas. Gastronomy is a fundamental part of Madrid culture and this is noticeable as soon as you land in the city. It is not difficult to find meat stores on every corner or markets full of first class products in each neighborhood. This shows how important cooking is in this city, and that beyond being just something traditional, it is something full of feelings.

Being the capital of Spain, perhaps the prices of food in restaurants are just a little more expensive than in the rest of the country, however, if you compare the prices to the countries of the region, you will be able to notice a big difference. Since in general in Spain eating in a restaurant is not so expensive.

Let’s start with the most basic, a coffee, but let’s make it clear that the prices are standard, because they obviously vary depending on the neighborhood and the business. The average price of a cup of coffee in Madrid is 2 euros. Let’s continue with the traditional breakfast, a sandwich, a coffee and a juice, all that would cost around 5 euros. Fairly good.

When it comes to lunch, an entry would cost 5 euros and the main course about 10 euros. A quite reasonable price. Continuing with dinner, a starter costs 5 euros, the main course 10 euros and a glass of wine 3 euros. If there is room for dessert, it would cost around 4 euros.

In short, Madrid is a gastronomic paradise. It is a beautiful city, the capital of Spain that has one of the most exquisite cuisines in the world and also the price of its dishes is quite good compared to most European countries.
