Whilst visiting Madrid we came across this place and decided to see what the uproar inside was about. It is a small place which was heaving with locals and workers escaping the sun and having lunch. We found a spot next to a dentist chair and some black folk art and ordered some various dishes. The waitresses were extremely busy... More

My wife and I ate at Los Gatos while in Madrid from July 11-15. It was a bit off the beaten path and did not have any tourists, which we liked. We were looking for a place frequented by the locals offering authentic tapas and cold drinks. The tapas were delicious and we could have stayed all night enjoying them.... More

The food was tasty in general and the prices were normal, but the place (floor, toilette, tables) was rather dirty... The decoration is interesting and the restaurant has "character", but the dirty hands of the cooker/waiter are on the cons...also I heard the sound of the microwave so my assumption is that the tapas were not cooked at that time...

Went on a tapas tour and this was our first place. A small but great little bar. They had great tapas but don't order anything. If they ask if you want a menu item just decline. If you say yes they will bring you the most expensive item. If you decline they will bring you free tapas if you order... More

On our first paseo we stopped by this place. They were friendly and kind. A great stop to make on Calle de Jesus!

I went to Los Gatos with a few of my colleagues back in May. The decoration and atmosphere is unique, the service friendly, and the tapas selection is very good. The Manchego in particular was excellent - the best I've ever tried. I will make sure to go back if I visit Madrid again.

I have being going there for years. Always enjoy the decoration, service ( this time so so however), and the feel of old Madrid Taberna. Pinchos and beer are perfect, more sophisticated fare, probably not, but have not tried it. Also it offers an excellent walk through the Barrio de Las Letras in Old Madrid, which is an experience in... More

In a City with many tourists, authentic restaurants are sometimes difficult to find – at least in the City Centre. Los Gatos has been a pleasant surprise which we discovered on a tour from Lavapies to Chueca. We had a local quality control with us and I also speak enough Spanish to avoid pitfalls. Los Gatos has a very nice... More

The Calle de Jesus, (yes, with a statue of Jesus on the corner) is an awesome short street for a tapas/pub crawl. Our favorite.......The Cervecerias Los Gatos. Tiny place filled with locals. Tried both the sangria and local beer on tap. Although many people seemed to be happy munching on tapas, we had just eaten. Such interesting decor, friendly staff... 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.
