The good reviews on TripAdvisor for this restaurant are generally written by the more experienced critics -- and those are the ones you should trust. The menu is extensive, as is the wine list. The dishes were well prepared, and the lamb shoulder main course...More

This place cannot handle allergies or dietary restrictions. They pretend to, but don't understand or care. The staff is basically pushy. The room is cramped, waiters kept crashing into my chair. Some food was better than others, but nothing was fabulous. I wouldn't recommend this...More

The food was just ok. Mr Esteban was apologizing all the time for the bad service and food quality. The overall experience was a bad one. The price very high. Any way we will not come back. Sorry Mr Esteban.

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
neighbourhood 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 —
