A quaint restaurant close to the art museums. The service was excellent and the food was a very good value, especially the daily special which we had. Would happily recommend it.

The Olsen is an institution that you share with great pleasure. Every time in Madrid I can't resist in going there alone, with friends, alone again. Everything matches, the decor, trendy but simple, food very well done, an outstanding wine selection, including wines from all...More

The food here is fantastic!! I had braised pork & it practically melted away from the fork - delicious. Try the plater with mixed vodcas, which correspond to the tapa like starters, really nice for 2 or 4 people. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

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 —
