For the price, I thought the food and wine was good. The staff was extremely nice and so was the ambience.

This is a really good bar, very friendly staff. There are lots of small spaces here, which had up to a very large space. Good food and cold beer.

Called in for a beer and were given nice tapas of ham. Called again Sunday afternoon for a few drinks and had excellent tapas. Very busy but will definitely go again.

I was in Madrid on business and stayed at the Westin Palace. Restaurant is quick walk from hotel. Good service, good prices...they made me feel right at home sitting at the counter!

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 —
