Our first visit this week was fantastic. Great food, amazing service. So much so that we changed our plans so that we could go back before we left Madrid. Big mistake. Our waiter (different guy) was rude, there was a noticeable drop in service level and more importantly in food quality. So disappointing, wouldn't go back there.

Hello, We want to apologize if the waiter has been an antipathic with you, since it is not our company policy. But as every human being could have a bad day, although it is no excuse. The food was bad? We do not understand where we fail. We would like to know, to check that it has been able to... More

Terrible service. We were 7 and they brought food for 3 but did no come to say why the remaining 4 had to wait almost 30 minutes for theirs. The steak was terrible but we did enjoy the starter meal.

Looking for a place to eat, we stumbled upon this restaurant and decided to give it a try. Nice decor, average service, good food. The €11 lunch menu was complete: bread, one entrée, one main course, drink (glass of wine) and dessert or coffee. Fellow travelers, we recommend it!

We had two starters (generous portions) and the burgers. The meat was excellent. All in all, a great value for the quality of the food. We also had a great/friendly server.

Accidentally stumbled upon Mezklum while walking around the old town last July. It was baking hot and we were looking for a nice place for an early lunch with tapas. The food was amazing! The service was impeccable. This place must get very busy at night.

Small entrance belies a smart ,welcoming and lively restaurant inside. Inside the decor is modern and comfortable.The food was exceptional with a modern take on Spanish food. Enjoyed it so much we went back a second time and were not disappointed. The service was friendly without being intrusive .

Terrible service. Disrespectful, not Nice. They made a mistake with the check and they weren't Polite about it. Didn't even apologize for the mistake. Just almost kicked us Out. The waitress that has a flower tattoo on her arm was the most rude person in the world. We dont recommend it to anyone. Only to our worst enemies.

The octopus was delicious and the deserts are perfect! :-) We got very nice and surprisingly fast service. The interior of the place is charming, worth spending an evening here! Prices are acceptable.

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.
