I was first introduced to Gala 17 years ago by Spanish colleagues and have come here every time I'm in Madrid since then. It's traditional, slightly eccentric, maybe a bit run down decor wise and with a short menu but consistently fantastic for paella. The...More

We were recommended to this restaurant. The service was poor and erratic. The paella was salty (I assume to cover blandness) and for a mixed paella had very little in the way of seafood and chorizo. The chicken was an entire drumstick. We didn't need...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 —
