We were delighted to come across Los Gatos on our first night in Madrid. Just a couple of minutes walk from our hotel, it is a small atmospheric bar with traditional tapas and simply great for 'people watching'. We will definitely return with more friends who join us tomorrow.

My wife and I sheltered from the awful rain on Sunday afternoon by popping into this lovely little place for a couple of canas and a little snack. A lovely little place overall with charmingly strange decor, the tapas were good but nothing amazing, the beer was cold and the staff cool but helpful. It was a very convivial way... More

Looks like a great authentic tapas place from the outside (cute decor, family-owned vibe, etc.) but upon eating there, you realize it's just a tourist rip-off. The staff basically ignored me for the first 10 minutes when I was trying to order. Then they microwaved half the plates we got, and upon receiving the bill I was disgusted at how... More

Great but pricy jamon. Had several laughs due to the very varied and fun decor. Why a light pole in the midle of the restaurant?

Ideal for having a few beers before going out. They serve tapas with every glass of beer so don´t go with a full stomach! The decoration is unique, a bit of south of Spain and a bit of vintage decoration. As most of tapas bars it´s crowded in Friday afternoon but the ambiance is always joyous so it´s worth going.

Walked in for a late 2pm lunch and despite being very busy and being a large group, we were allocated a large table immediately. Service was very warm and the tapas and wine kept flowing - pick of the tapas were the pigs cheeks. Very enjoyable and only a 5 minute walk from the Prado.

It gets a lot of tourists, but some locals too. The canapés are pretty good, actually. They have a wide variety. The tap beer is super fresh and tastes great, and the prices aren't astronomical, but they're aren't especially cheap. I love the funky decor. It gets very crowded in the evenings, especially on weekends. The location is great, very... More

Small buzzing tapas bar, full of locals and with interesting decor. Like many popular crowded tapas places, you need to push yourself forward to get some service, and do some vigorous pointing at stuff you want to eat (if like me, you don't speak Spanish). This was one of several characterful tapas bars along Calle Jesus which we visited one... More

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.
