We enjoyed our first meal here, tapas sitting in the winter sun. Perfect. The food was very special and it set us up for a great city break. You should come here at lunchtime when it is not so busy to eat, relax and enjoy.

Went there on the last night of my stay in Madrid, was within 5 minutes walking distance of my hotel. Had tapas menu, so the usual dry bread & small pack of picos was given. Had an order of onion soup which was a tad too salty for my taste, added pepper to temper it. Then had potato bravas, the... More

Sits in a picturesque little square which has a wealth of nice looking bars and restaurants (as do many of the surrounding streets). An absolutely perfect spot to while away the afternoon in the sunshine whilst drinking and eating plenty of their wonderful tapas. The Spanish omelette is the best I’ve ever had as they don’t overcook the egg so... More

For those who really know and appreciate 5Js bellota ham, a must. There is not a lot to add to this. Order the bellota ham, the bellota ham croquettes. The tomato salad is a poem as well.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. We sat outside and watched all the excitement out on the street. They gave us a delicious complimentary seafood starter. They had a great cheese plate and seafood paella. Wonderful wine and a good value.

worth trying this bar also for good wine and delicious tapas. Crowded so be patient - the service was slow but they have a lovely terrace where you can sit, eat and people watch.

Very slow and bad service, the chorizo was as tough as a stone, they didn't bring salt, their coffee is sour and is extremely diluted with milk. Never again.

Looking for a non tapas meal for a change, we were not disappointed here. Good mains, we had pork shoulder (beware if you want it well done!) and then I had the fruit salad for dessert. The photo on the menu is what you get. I counted 9 different fruits inc star fruit, kiwi fruit and strawberries. Great value at... More

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
