An array of fun tapas dishes in small glasses, each with its own character. Pricing was very cheap for the quality, and service was fast + professional. Would definitely recommend.

Set in a small lane south of the madness that is Sol plaza, this bar looks unassuming from the outside. We hung around outside until the stroke of 7 pm, and then wandered in for tapas. Seating looks very limited - mostly around the bar...More

We went in there for lunch before leaving Madrid and what a great way it was to finish the trip. The staff was very friendly, service fast and efficient. We had the lunch menu, for 12.50€, that included two tapas, one main dish, one dessert...More

Went in one evening as a part of a tapas bar crawl and glad we did. The waiter/barman spoke perfect English (opposed to my terrible Spanish) and recommended a few dishes to us. Will definitely pop back in if back in Madrid.

Late (well for English standards) dinner. Ordered 10 or so tapas and bill (with a few cocktails) was sub 60 euros so good value for service and quality. Very good English speaking server looked after us well. Favourites were pate, teriyaki sirloin and crispy chicken.

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 —

Nice tavern located on the most central and commercial zone of Madrid (walking distance to la Puerta del Sol and Plaza de Santa Ana). Ideal to make a stop along the way to taste its tapas or to have dinner sitting at one of its small rooms. Very varied menu of Spanish portions and bite-sized appetizers. Kind employees. Kitchen open to the public for directly dealing with the chef. Sangría. Cocktails.
