Amazing value for money!

Four of us went there for lunch recently and had a great meal! The grilled asparagus and berenjenas rebozadas were delicious for starters, and they had some delicious fresh grilled fish and escalopes for the main course. Plus a pudding, wine and bread, all for 10 or 11 euros, astonishing! And the... read more

We found this place due to the trip advisor reviews and so glad we did! £11 for starter, mains, dessert, bread & a bottle of house wine.... Seriously great value and the food was authentic! The deco is nothing to write home about, but the food, service & value certainly is! You have to try the aubergine fritters! If it... More

This place is the working man's paradise and will remind people who knew Madrid of the 1980's as to why this was such a wonderful place to visit. Abundant fresh food offered at very reasonable menu del dia prices are a must with bread and wine appetizer main course and dessert for under 15 euros. The atmosphere is puro casttizo.... More

We finally got a table after tryin three days in a row. The secret was to go before 1:30. They serve various fixed priced three course menus. They bring the starters to share - which was nice. If you order the 16 euro priced fix meal your wine is included - quite the deal. Our desserts were great too -... More

This should be the most valued for money restaurant in Madrid. Three of us had EUR 11 set lunch. We got one bottle of white wine, 3 starters/main course/desserts. The food is average but considering the money we paid, we were pretty happy with the meal. By the time we finished our lunch and leaving, there were more than 20... More

Went there at 12:40 pm because it said on TripAdvisor that it was open. The sign on the door said open from 1:00pm. So, a bit confused, we peeked inside; they saw us. As we kept waiting at the door, someone came out after several minutes and told us in Spanish that it's not 1 o clock yet! Harshly.

The food is tasty with large portions and generous supply of wine. For the price can't be beat. The service is brisk energetic with a history and fun. I tip well (20%+)and made the second and third visit very entertaining.

The service in this local restaurant is excellent. The staff have limited English but the menus have clear translations. The fixed price meals (from 10 euro) are great value . The food is generally well cooked and we espcially enjoyed the grilled asparagus, berenjenas rebozados, albondigas and the crema catalana. The fries as is often the case in Spain were... More

I go there every time I'm in Madrid. I is not only an unbelievable bargain but some dishes are excellent. For the first time I tried the pork on the arm joint bone (Gammon) and it was as good as you can possible ever hope for. Wish I was back with our favorite waiter having comfort food!

Staying in Huertas

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.
