Great service!

Friendly staff. The place is enchanting, and the food is everything you would expect from one of the oldest restaurant in Madrid. Highly recommended.

Because the restaurant was full, the bartender suggested us to stay at the bar. He served us excellent wine and advised us on the tapas which were delicious. We really loved the place.

My wife and I arrived this morning in Madrid, where she had attended Madrid University in her junior year at Rider College. We had a wonderful day acquainting ourselves with the city and chose Casa Alberto as the place to have our first dinner. We were very happy we did. The atmosphere was wonderful, enhanced by every table being filled.... More

We have a very good compost and very delicious drinks at this 200 Madrid taps bar. Just spending some time there might take you back to another time. The drinks were delicious as well. I especially liked the bartender who is very friendly.

One of the more atmospheric of the old tabernas of Madrid, Casa Alberto has been around since 1827 and occupies a building where Cervantes is said to have written one of his books. The secret to its staying power may lie in the vermouth on tap and excellent tapas at the bar. Dining at the establishment on the evening of... More

A very nice tapas bar with excellent service. The tapas were quite interesting and maybe not what we had expected but made it so more fun to taste. The interior was also so genuine which made our evening so nice. I do recommend to come here.

booked this online prior to going, having read reviews and mentioned in guide book. Buzzing place right in heart of nighlife. Very authentic, good food but limited if a vegetarian which one of our party was. Fairly good value, and worth a visit.

Lovely restaurant. Beautiful old world interior in which to sit and enjoy great Spanish food. Staff is welcoming, and service is excellent. Would suggest making a reservation since the dining room always seems full. If you prefer, can have drinks and tapas at the beautiful, intimate bar.

we had been recommended to Casa Alberto by a friend who is from Madrid and we booked ahead of time and were glad we did. The bar and restaurant are small but extremely atmospheric and very busy. We ate at the restaurant at the back and it was intimate and old fashioned but it felt like the real Madrid and... More

We walked in at about 8pm on a Friday, and we chose to sit in the back (the front is tapas, the back is the "restaurant"). I read that the staff was rude, however, we found them to be very professional and patient. They're not chatty because they are quite busy. The meal lasted about 2 hours, but this Spain,... 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.
