Tucked away in the bustling lanes of El Rastro, Madrid’s most vibrant flea market, Bar El Campillo stands out not just as another watering hole but as a testament to culinary brilliance. Amidst a sea of bars where it’s a challenge to discern quality, El Campillo shines brightly, a beacon for those in the know. The young chef and owner, Manuel Urbano, has proven his mettle in the kitchen, offering more than just the typical fare. What sets this bar apart is its exceptional handling of ingredients, creating dishes that sing with Andalusian flair—a nod to Manu’s roots.

A complimentary appetizer accompanying each drink and warm bread served with a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil is just the beginning of a meal here. While the menu might seem like the usual suspects at first glance, delve deeper, and you’ll find dishes with a twist that are hard to come by elsewhere. The insider tip? Ask for half portions of some dishes if they don’t advertise it; you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Prices at Bar El Campillo are scandalously reasonable, ensuring you get top-notch quality without breaking the bank.

The atmosphere is as inviting as the food, with service that’s friendly and sometimes cheekily bold, adding to the charm of this place. Whether you’re a local or just passing through, missing out on this place would be a culinary sin.
