11 Euros for 3 courses and half a bottle of wine. This, in the centre of Madrid, would be enough in itself even were the food not full of flavour and the service excellent. A huge range of set menu options offering tasty, straightforward food means that everyone can find something they will like and, having been 3 times now,... More

Came here with a friend after reading the trip advisor reviews. Very basic place but with a fairly extensive menu. We went at night and ate from the a la carte not one of the many set menus. Starters of padron peppers and aubergine fritters were both delicious and huge - unless you have a massive appetite one to share... More

We had to queue outside to get a table at lunchtime this pretty plain looking, no frills restaurant. On entering we found an extensive menu of typically basic Spanish fare. We chose from the set menu: starters of mushrooms with garlic and grilled asparagus - both very good. Our main courses chicken with garlic and cod in tomato sauce were... More

This restaurant was packed full at lunchtime. We went back at8.30pm just when they opened for the evening to get a table. The restaurant doesn't accept table reservations. We loved the ambience and the food. The dishes were honest and tasty, as if cooked at home. We would gladly go back.

My 2 sisters and I were very excited to eat here on our last night in Madrid, however after we made the long trek to the location it was closed! Would recommend phoning before you visit to make sure they are open to avoid disappointment.

This place is mostly full of locals, and for me it's always a good sign! We liked the variety and quality of food we had there. You can chose any dish from the menu or take 2 different dishes and dessert for a fixed price. Fish, prawns, eggplants - everything was very fresh and just cooked. Also liked the service,... More

I visited with my wife and two children and we were welcomed. Unlike a few others we have tried where the prices were high and food questionable, this place was a pleasure. There is something on the menu that suits all tastes; all dishes are simple and fresh. Three of our party had three courses, my daughter had a main... More

We walked in and sat down and felt very relaxed with all Spanish families around us. Old style decor but immaculate service. Three course set meals with many to choose from for as little as 16 euros including a lovely bottle of house wine! My wife chose fish entree and pasta and chicken main course and I chose madrid tripe... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
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.
