This bar was such a great find! We were looking for a quiet terrace, but they were closing down so we end up in El Sur, sitting in the (very cute) bay window, and we had drinks and food inside while feeling that we were...outside. Although the sangria, risotto and cheesecake were truly remarkable, what I enjoyed the most was the treatment we got from the waiter, John. I'm definitely coming back.More

Excellent spot! Food is amazing and so is service. Thanks to John who was super kind, a great host. I would recommend calamares and ropa vieja. Definitely a place to return.

Great food! Especially the moussaka. But everything we had was good. The best sangria accompanied by a free shot of limoncello! Would recommend.

I have been sitting outside with my wine, shrimps, salad and enjoying the awesome service and good jazzy vibes. The food and wine was amazing and I recommend this to everyone that comes by. You can sit outside in the shade and the service is...fast! There is no other way I could have spend my Sunday better.More

Decided to try El Sur de Huertas as we were in the neighbourhood & based off the great reviews on Google. We were not disappointed. This is a great little local restaurant with great food & wine & the service provided by Peter was excellent....Especially helping my wife to navigate the gluten free options on the menu. Food & drinks were reasonably priced & it is a friendly & inviting location.More

We enjoyed a really lovely selection of tapas in this small restaurant/bar. The red wine was very nice and the cheese platter delicious. We also sampled the empanadas... definitely worth a try. Good value. Lovely atmosphere (cinema posters line the walls) and staff were very...attentive (Peter served us).More

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 —

We made reservations just to be safe. The tables were packed, service is A-1. The sangria is probably the best I’ve ever had and the presentation is picturesque. The menu is super easy and the portions are plentiful!
