Good local place for lunch

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.

We were looking for a good restaurant Gallego in Madrid and we found it! The quality of the food is really high; however; portions are quite small. Having said that, the overall experience was great. If you're looking for a good place to eat fresh seafood - I would not think twice!

Restaurant, in a touristic street and area, which is definitively targeting local customers (forget speaking English and practice your Spanish!). The food is from Galicia region, i.e. good fish and sea food, and we ordered and shared several dishes amongst colleagues: tasty and at a reasonable price. For the drink we got cider also from the Galicia region. The restaurant... More

The restaurant is really informal and frequented by local people (because of the quality of the food) and by young students and young tourists (for the very affordable prices). I knew that Galician cuisine was one of the best in Spain, and my experience confirm that 100 %. Pulpo is the dish you have to try and will hardly forget.... More

The food is average, but quite pricey, and that is the good bit. The kitchen seems to be in a mess, with the two starters arriving at different times, and the main course ready before the last starter is eaten. Uncomfortable low stools, with loud celtic music - what is the attraction in that?

Though some recent reviews seem negative, we were satisfied with the food and ambiance of the restaurant. Food is just plane and simple as it should be in their opinion, but is tasteful, good at taste. Do not expect fancy things, this is taverna with also service that is not to please you but just serve !!

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.
