I booked the place for brunch for a group of 13 people. I had to pay the total amount upfront. The mimosa eggs were way overcooked and hard. The positive point was the croissants, as good as real French ones. Don't know what happen to...More

The place is a franchise of French cuisinne some years ago it was very good but now a days service and variety have fallen down. I never were able to drink a Bordeaux wine there. Quality is good but as it used to be.

My husband and I had a wonderful lunch at this place. He had the Marget (duck) and I had fish with a light leek and butter sauce. It was divine! The service was very nice as well!

Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once
home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de

from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to
them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —
