We loved the history of the place, and the tapas is great. There are a lot of unique decorations through out that if you are lucky they will tell you about. It is a family owned place that has some cool roots. Try the traditional vermouth.

Very characteristic place specialized in all types of tapas (also some vegetarian options), a duty to explore the culinary traditions of the city. What a pity that sit is hard.

Nice, small tapas bar on Calle Jesus. The tapas are fine, the service is helpful, no complaints about this place, I just feel there are better places to go on this block.

Los Gatos is on Calle Jesus along with about 9 other excellent tapas bars. We tried many of them and were not disappointed. It was very crowded for a good reason.

Stopped in one afternoon for some Tapas and they were very good. The help does not speak english very well but all you have to do is point at what you want and they will get it for you.

Charlie makes this place "Cheers"; strangers become friends, tourists, locals. Super assortment of tapas in case. Each bar has different beer on tap, Los Gatos is especially good. Just had to return from last Madrid trip in 2007; and this place is still tops!

My wife and I decided to do a proper tapaceria when visiting Madrid. This was the second bar we visited and the gambas and morcilla were excellent. The bar is a visual treat and the staff quite engaging.

Crowded bar, almost empty restaurant space. Mediocre rabo de toro, inedible perdiz, about twice what we paid in other places.

We all enjoyed the food although the restaurant is small and a little cramped. The waitress helped with the tapas selection, which was delivered quickly. We weren't rushed but it did feel a little like that as the staff were so busy. We paid around €100 euros in total.

If you don't know what you want, they will order for you. Busy, lively, great tapas on toasts. On a street filled with tapas bars, start here and move on in either direction. The fish tapas are excellent here.

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.
