We visited here as a group of six and found Casa Alberto to be one the most friendly and authentic tapas bars and restaurants in Madrid. We arrived at a super busy time with no prior booking but were still made to feel welcome, we received little plates of complimentary tapas whilst waiting for a table and were regularly updated...

We have been coming to Casa Alberto for 5 years (12-18 month gaps) and it never fails. The barmen (we have seen the main 3 on each of our visits) are delightful, the food, wine and vermut are always good and squeezing into a space at the bar is a joy! We will be back in four weeks for another... More

Casa Alberto used to be a favourite! We hadn't been in a few years and are sad to say we were very disappointed with our recent visit. Service was poor; prices were high... Formerly a classic, now a miss!

Try ham croquettes, chistorra, and Andaluz calamari for lunch and have an excellent dinner in the restaurant, which opens at 20:00. Don't forget to make reservation for dinner.

Casa Alberto is among the oldest eateries in Madrid and the décor and atmosphere make that apparent. The food is a s good as anywhere else and so are the tapas. It is located in Calle Huertas, right off Plaza Santa Ana, one of the best areas for tapas crawling in Madrid since it has a huge density of bars... More

Bad-tempered waiters and food gone bad (I had to throw calamari away because they smelt bad). A total disappointment!

We were looking for a good time at night with our friends and we ended up at this place. It was such a pleasant surprise. Food was excellent, I strongly recommend 'ensaladilla rusa' and try everything, because we tried many dishes and all were delicious. Our waitress was very gentle, I think he was even more surprised than us, because... More

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.
