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 —

The restaurant closed for renovation from 20 Feb 2017 until 27 Feb 2017 inclusive. Arco Taberna restaurant is a popular dining destination for lovers palates Mediterranean cuisine located in the center of Madrid, in the neighborhood of Las Letras, near Plaza del Angel. Different caps are postulated as a good opportunity to share on the table. Potatoes with mojo are all a specialty. Not least are the garlic prawns, though, the main, which itself shines is the broken hand that holds her kitchen in the preparation of rice. Seafood paella and black Paella are scrumptious. To conclude, leaving a gap for the homemade desserts restaurant El Arco. The dulce de leche pancake well worth it. Plus a dynamic menu of the day, with a menu of weekend that you should not miss it. What are you waiting for?
