Great food and drinks. Please give yourself the pleasure of looking at all the great stuff under the roof and on the walls. So detailed and wonderful. Good mixture of locals and tourists. Absolutely fair range of price / value.

We had our dinner last Wednesday and enjoyed the local food in a cellarlike restaurant with an allegro con brio service! Reasonable priced variety of local dishes and a good beer make our evening and pleasant experience. Will definitely return here on our next visit to Madrid!

The problem with Los Gatos is that there are a ton of other places in Madrid with either better or cheaper tapas (or both). The food is decent, the price is a bit expensive but the atmosphere is quirky and enjoyable. You will probably have a satisfactory experience, but nothing to tell your friends about.

We wanted to like this cerveceria/ tapas bar, but thought it was overpriced for the quality of the food. The noise level can be way up there. The food comes out fairly quickly, and you can feel like you are rushed to finish up and move on. Maybe it is only the impression of a visitor to the City, but... More

Went here for tapas. Had some Jamon Iberica, Manchengo Cheese and Pork Cheeks. Jamon was fresh and delicious, pork cheeks were so tender and in a well suited sauce. Would be perfect with bread. Service was efficient and friendly

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

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.
