We wandered here late on a Sunday after seeing a number of restaurants in the area on Trip Advisor - fortunately we didn't read the poor reviews. We thought it was great! Yes - busy and the waitress was harried but service was good and the food was outstanding. The green peppers are a must, the steak tapas delicious and... More

After reading a veritable avalanche of one-star reviews, I spent a bit of time scratching my head, wondering how we could have had such an amazingly great experience, while others simply could not slam the place hard enough! My theory: This is a restaurant that is a victim of it's own success . . . a place that, having become... More

Two years ago we found this gem, and then when we returned to Madrid we came back to visit because it was SO good. Each time it was DELICIOUS.

The location of this restaurant is extremely good, right next to the prado museum. Inside there is a chaos going on. Everybody is screaming like if we're in hell and people are celebrating with beers. The waiters are nice but they have no skills . Today our waitress dropped two plates within 30 seconds and she continued walking as if... More

Stopped here as it looked like a charming little place to have tapas. Waitress needs to start smiling (most miserable face I've ever seen, and a bit of dry shampoo wouldn't go astray either). As we sat down a waitress threw a basket of bread at us! We asked for dipping oil and salt 3 times until finally had to... More

Attracted to this restaurant because it was very busy both on the sidewalk patio and inside, and busy usually means the food is very good. Went inside and got the last table. Waitress did not understand English and the menu was only in Spanish. We showed her what another family was eating on the patio, and managed to ordered the... More

Food is not bad but the service is horrible. They throw the dishes at you. They forget what you ordered and then they do not apologize. I would not return ever to this restaurant.

Our first lunch at Madrid, we walked in, 5 of us, at around 3 pm, which apparently is not late at all in Madrid. We got a table at the far end, and could see that the servers were rushed off their feet. The menu cards are quirky, handwritten on wood, and so a little difficult to read and decipher.... More

Despite being with a fluent Spanish speaker, the 'service' was distinctly hostile. The food was also unremarkable. We had octopus which was OK, clams which were fairly unexceptional, a salad which was some iceberg lettuce, tuna and hard boiled egg - not great. Can't think why I'd eat here again, unless nowhere else was open.

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.
