Good start with the o cacho tapa as a starter which included 4 bruschetta style pieces with a nicely grilled flank steak on too of the bread along with grilled courgette and a pepper. All of this drizzled with a nice meaty gravy. Good start and good dish to share. Main was the beef ribs on a bed of mash... More

We wanted to enjoy the sunny afternoon with some snacks and more. Unfortunately the team was not really interested to come to the guests. Very untypical. What a pity.

Really good fresh tapas at an excellent price despite being on one of the most iconic / beautiful squares in Madrid. Now with a menu that's translated into English.

Nice restaurant with very nice people. We had a nice diner and coffee for desert. Not a high level restaurant but just very nice and very reasonable priced i would say.

When we visited the restaurant it was raining so we could not sit outside at the terrace. The ambience inside is average. With regard to the food: some dishes were fine, others somewhat poorer.

We were welcomed by a friendly waitress which was the highlight of the meal. We wish the standard of the food was up to the same level. I ordered the steak that should come from the Owners own farm. The meat was below standard and as tough as it comes. The meat was simply not up to scratch with no... More

We enjoyed our meal and we liked the plaza location, but we also felt we paid for the plaza location with somewhat higher prices than the food warranted.

We only came to this restaurant because our youngest is fussy, but said he would eat a burger. However we were amazed by the quality of the food. Eldest said it was the best burger he'd ever had. I had the Galicico beef and it was amazing. Simply cooked, good ingredients. How can you go wrong. Lovely spot in the... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
