Finding places to eat that are open earlier than most Spaniards eat can be a challenge. This centrally located restaurant was open at when we wanted a meal at 6:30 PM. We enjoyed the food, and there were a number of vegetarian options on the...More

This place is one of my favorites in Madrid because they serve you with the most delicious tea (which is hard to find in Madrid) and the staff is so nice.

When you are a vegetarian in Madrid, your choices are quite limited. I had lunch here and it was ok. We were the only people there, as it was almost 4 pm, so it felt a bit soul-less. However the food was fine and the...More

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
