Nice bar for a drink and some food. The place is full of newspapers from all over the world and it is a quite typical bar from Madrid.

Wonderful selection of tapas, including the ubiquitous ensaladilla rusa (best in town in our view) and a huge variety of traditional tapas. Great for a quick snack or for longer if you sit at the back where the more comfy seats are (meant for longer...More

Went in as the weather turned too cool to be walking outside. Ordered 2 red wines and they are good, served with hot meatballs!

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

from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to
them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas
receives a fair amount of spillover from the center —
