Friends arranged for us to meet them at this Tapas bar as they had been before. The food was so different to the normal Tapas and was divine. We tried a wide variety of food and some we ordered twice, they were so good. The people working there were really into the food and wine and very passionate about everything,... More

Absolutely LOVED this spot. Some of the most amazing gourmet tapas we've ever had. Definitely get the teriyaki steak and crispy chicken.

We had a great dinner at this restaurant. The service was fast and friendly. The food was excellent with interesting combinations of flavours and presentations. We certainly recommend this as a stop in Madrid.

Avoid this place. Poor quality of food and too expensive taking into consideration that. Although, nice staff.

We've been several days in Madrid and visited a few tapas bars which were okay, But this one tops them all. It's a small place so we recommend to reserve a place in advance. We ordered the crispy chicken, mini burgers, sirloin steak with rice, potatoes with aioli, vegetable skewers and eggplant skewers. All the dishes were very good but... More

Description
Nice tavern located on the most central and commercial zone of Madrid (walking distance to la Puerta del Sol and Plaza de Santa Ana). Ideal to make a stop along the way to taste its tapas or to have dinner sitting at one of its small rooms. Very varied menu of Spanish portions and bite-sized appetizers. Kind employees. Kitchen open to the public for directly dealing with the chef. Sangría. Cocktails.

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Huertas
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 — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
