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!

We went here on a Friday night and it was really busy with locals - so that is a good sign. I don't think the food was that great. Wine was served in cups rather than glasses which I didn't like. But atmosphere good.

The restaurant and food is great but unfortunately I had very bad experience regarding one of the waiter in this restaurant (the bigger one as there are two in Madrid). I'm making this review hoping the managers of the restaurant will trace this person. I visited the restaurant on the 03rd of April 2015 with my wife and my daughter... More

This place had come highly recommended as one of the places where we could enjoy authentic food, but did not live up to expectations in the least. The Galician cheeses came with a very dry white bread and had little taste at all (although portion-size was huge), and the patatas bravas tasted too much of ketchup for our taste. As... More

Great value local food with decent sized portions. Won't blow your mind but would recommend to stop for lunch after visiting the numerous attractions near by.

Food was good but not great, service slow and lack of attention from staff. Everyone of them seemed to be unhappy. Just two girls serving and kept saying sorry for being slow, but I think it is just bad management which affects this place. Shame.

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.
