I went to this place with friends at the end of November. I guess you really needed local knowledge to know about this place which wasn't far from the hotel where I stayed. Fabulous value for money you get bread, 3 courses and half a bottle of drinkable wine all for €11.00. That's pretty remarkable value for money serving up... More

After many good visits. On this occasion with reservation included with hours of anticipation, on arrival we are informed that there is no availability. Which makes our dinner of friends in a good place totally disappear and ruin the moment.

We went for lunch with a friend who lives in Madrid and frequents this local favorite. It is so popular that there is almost always a wait. We were seated after 15 minutes. There menus of the day are either 10 or 11 euros. They include a starter, a main course and a dessert. We all had the garbanzo soup... More

We walked by this restaurant one evening and noticed it was packed, with many locals. So we decided to eat there the following day. We cannot say enough about the quality of the food, the reasonable prices, and our fabulous waiter Joaquin. He was quick, efficient, and a very good sport considering that I first knocked over a carafe of... More

An inexpensive but good eatery mainly used by locals. You can order a la carte or pick from the inexpensive combinations that include starter, meat or fish and dessert. With this comes wine or beer and bread. They are very busy so don't expect a lot of attention during the meal which is fine. Three waiters hustle and get it... More

It's not the first time I went to this restaurant and every time I go to Madrid I always go back. It offers a very cheap menu of the day with a great choice of first and second courses including a drink and dessert. All on the menu are typical and traditional spanish dishes, all warming and down to earth... More

It you stick to the menu, that will give a choice of drinks, bread, selection of first dish, second dish and desert. Their Cocido Stew and the Garbanzo soup are excellent, I have become a regular...

11 Euros for 3 courses and half a bottle of wine. This, in the centre of Madrid, would be enough in itself even were the food not full of flavour and the service excellent. A huge range of set menu options offering tasty, straightforward food means that everyone can find something they will like and, having been 3 times now,... More

Came here with a friend after reading the trip advisor reviews. Very basic place but with a fairly extensive menu. We went at night and ate from the a la carte not one of the many set menus. Starters of padron peppers and aubergine fritters were both delicious and huge - unless you have a massive appetite one to share... 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.
