Cute spot for tapas!

We stepped into Los Gatos for a quick snack and it was perfect for that. We stood at the bar and choose a couple of tapas that were displayed and had a couple beers. The inside of the restaurant was rather funky and I loved it! It was a busy spot and people lingered around in the front area... read more

Found this place just by walking around. The line at the door and the convivial attitude of the patrons made us realize it is listed in many guidebooks! And rightly so, a great variety of tapas, salads, and a great wait staff. They made us some items not listed on the menu - the smoked whitefish was to die for... More

We visited Los Gatos on a food tour and really enjoyed this stop! The tapas were absolutely outstanding as was the on tap vermouth. The ambiance was kind of sophisticated but warm and fun at the same time. Eclectic furnishings, sparkling fixtures and quirky wall murals added to the experience. A really cool and delicious place to spend a couple... More

This has to be the best place in Madrid to spend an hour or two eating great tapas, drinking good wine, watching people and enjoying the ambience. On Calle Jesus just a hundred meters from Passo del Prado, and close to the Prado itself. Delicious tapas, friendly staff.

One of these restaurants that had been open for ages, quirky decoration from the past good times of Spain. The service and the food are very very good, I recommend the Ensaladilla, it was like eating a piece of heaven. It is not cheap, but it worth every single penny

V close to La Dolores it would be a shame not to visit it too. Nicer atmosphere, smaller, lovely staff and eclectic decor. All a bit mad inside with every surface including the ceiling covered with something. I especially liked the tiled picture of a reclining Goya nude with a padlock covering her modesty.

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

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.
