The outside is beautifully old fashioned and belies the size of the establishment. The restaurant is at the back of the bar area and it is decorated traditionally. The bar is really buzzy and busy with local drinking and eating tapas. The staff were really...More

Having read a lot of reviews of places in Spain (in English) there are often misconceptions and false expectations from tourists who don’t necessarily know how things work in Spain. I had the same experience in Italy, it took a few times to get a...More

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 —
