I'm heading solo to Madrid in September and will be on my own most of the days as my hosts will be at work. I'm looking for some reccommendations for bars/restaurants in the cheap to mid-range price that are quite solo-friendly. I quite like to sit about and read and drink wine and take my time over eating general, so probably not for me is the stand up at the bar, scoff tapas and move on thing for my day time munching.
Anywhere in the city is good, as I'm not going to be confining myself to tourist spots.
And seafood is always a favourite...
