in small restaurant. Perfect personal attitude of main waiter, probably only one guy can speak english, he explained to us which seafood is available and best, which wine could be suitable - really great job. Red prawns has been one of the best I eaten.

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

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 —
