We ate here based on Trip Advisor comments but we were very disappointed by the quality of food. Many posts had mentioned the aubergines with honey, so we tried them - tasteless inside, soggy batter outside. The duck had so much cold gelatinous fat to get through. The salmon and mango looked so dated that Beverly in Abigail's Party could... More

After having s very bad experience at the Rotunda in the Westin we set out to find another place for dinner and found this as it was highly rated on Trip Advisor. Glad we did. The place was small and cozy and packed - a good sign. The service was great and the food even better. The eggplant was amazing... More

When you enter the place via the bar it's unimpressive and look like any bar in Madrid, once you enter the restaurant it's like a different place. Restaurant is cozy and not very large but the food and service is excellent. We ordered eggplant with honey and they were amazing! The rabo de toro was excellent and the tortillitas de... More

If you go to Madrid and are looking for slightly less common tapas with an excellent service and great value for money, look no further. We were originally going to go for TriCiclo, a restaurant which many on Trip Advisor think will in future win Michelin stars and many awards. Upon calling there, we were turned away because the restaurant... More

5 min walk from Plaza de Santa Ane. Went to the restaurant for dinner on a Friday evening. They have Tapas on one side and a cozy bistro/restaurant on the other side with perhaps 10 tables. This review is for the restaurant. Small menu, but nice variety. I tried their special that day which was a salmon marinated in gin... More

My husband and I were blown away by this restaurant and was hands down our favorite in Madrid (we also went to Viridiana, Taberna Malaspina, el tiempo, el Mercado and Vi-Cool). I selected it after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. We had the duck liver mousse, eggplant fries, and special seafood in tomato broth dish among other items. We came back... More

A small but warm and friendly cafe style restaurant offering a simple but tasty menu at reasonable prices. Friendly, efficient staff combined with good quality food and speedy service make this a good option for an informal lunch. In an attractive part of Madrid. I would go back again for sure.

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.
