Great food but poor service

I had some of the best cod croquets and calamari of my trip in this restaurant. However, I also had one of the most indifferent waitresses of my trip. They close in the early evening for a few hours but didn’t explain this so I ordered a drink right before they started clearing up around me and... read more

We went here on a Rick Steve's recommendation and liked the food and laid-back atmosphere in this hole-in-the-wall place so much we ate here for 2 suppers-- great mix of locals and tourists down a bit farther from the other Calle de Jesus restaurants/tapas places. The octopus, cod croquettes, pimentos de Padron (small non-hot peppers with salt), the wine in... More

If you're looking for good Galician food for an affordable price this is the place. Don't expect much from the service though.

This used to be one of my favourite places years ago in Madrid, and when I went back it lived up to the memory. The place is quite picturesque, with a genuine atmosphere and a wide selection of very good tapas and dishes (octopus being the specialty), both fish and meat. It can be packed at weekends, it can be... More

We loved the octopus (pulp) stew and the ambience is fantastic if you are looking for genuine, local and intimate atmosphere. Bread was served quickly and all items arrived hot and tasty to our table. Prices were very reasonable and it is located in a nice area.

This small taberna on an unassuming street, C. Jesus, radiates off the C. Marqueses de Cubas near the Congreso de los Diputados, had the best soup , caldo, that I had in Madrid. It was recommended by a local, and did not disappoint.

This was my first experience of Galician food on my first night in Madrid and I wasn't disappointed - our selection of tapas was delicious, but not the best overall compared with other restaurants I went to on this visit. The atmosphere was good and service efficient if not particularly friendly. The pulpo (octopus) tapa is a speciality here, and... More

The food was uninspiring, we ordered croquetas de bacalao (codfish croquettes) and the only place where we could find cod was in the title of the plate. We had to send back to the kitchen an order of bacalao a la gallega because it was cold. The waitress just imposed on us the wine. Never gave me the chance to... More

I visited this place while traveling to Madrid with my husband. The food was good, the pulpo was great, but the service was more than terrible! Not welcoming at all!

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.
