This is a small restaurant full of bull fighting memorabilia. The staff are extremely helpful and the food is very good. Visited the place on several occasions and was never disappointed. Recommended

If you want a light breakfast you can get bread with jam and butter almond with excellent coffee and fresh orange juice for 3 Euros. You can have a bigger breakfast if you want. The service was excellent naps well.

It's a traditional bull fighting themed bar. We stopped by mid-evening for some raciones. Does all the usual tapas dishes, nothing fancy, but great if you prefer things traditional.

Everything about our meal was poor. Cheap baguette (you know the kind: paper thin, shiny crust) was hard / stale. My soup tasted like it was made from a can and was unevenly heated (in other words: microwaved). There were even some cold chunks in...More

Local small hole-in-the-wall. Cheap price fixed menu (10.50€), although the locals seemed to be eating items not on the menu. Quality of the food: Meh.

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 —
