Went here on a Saturday night at first - was so packed but noisy with locals that we left. It was too loud for us. Came back the next day for lunch at the main bar in the middle (I think it's called San Fernando)...More

If you are in Madrid you MUST come to Mercado San Fernando! It has the best food and the nicest vendors. We loved it.

We were obviously there around the same time as the previous reviewer - same day anyway. The dancing was great - they don't do this on a Sunday in Suffolk! Shouldn't be missed after (or during) El Rastro.
