Neither of us speak Spanish very well and struggled reading most of the menu. It was no problem though because the owner and waiters helped guide us through our meal. They gave great suggestions and we loved everything we eat! Decently priced and great atmosphere. Go here!

Close to our hotel (the Radisson Blu), friendly vibe, inventive and delicious. Loved the generous goat cheese/arugula/nut salad, which we shared to start. My main course was a creatively-prepared octopus, and my husband enjoyed his pork dish. Busy place (in a narrow space) on a weeknight evening, but we didn't feel rushed or overlooked. Would be happy to return.

It's a tiny restaurant in a small road close to Prado Museum. The plates are tasty but really small and the prices are a bit high. It is certainly not a lifetime experience. One of the plates was not freshly cooked (for sure).

My husband and I dined here on our first night in Madrid after a day of sight seeing and tapas hopping. We saw the reviews and stopped by to see if we could get s table sans reservation. Luckily for us, a 9pm table didn't show. We were sat and greeted at 9:30. From the get-go, service was top notch.... More

Visited this restaurant based on its trip advisor reviews. It is very, very tiny. The atmosphere is ruined because the tables are so close together. The intimacy is therefore lost. As you can see from the photo I was served a rotten potato. Anyone who cooks can recognise the telltale centre. I had asked for fries on the side when... More

We called to make sure we could get seats for the lunch special and after getting the okay, arrived about 15 minutes later. The lunch special is a great value, about 14 euros for a drink, 2 courses, and dessert or coffee. I opted for pasta in a creamy tomato sauce that was absolutely divine. My second course was hake,...

What can I say to this restaurant? What also can I say about Pablo the owner? Initially we planned to have dinner in a local and traditional Spanish restaurant. Searching on trip advisor we found a rest 2 blocks from La Tragantua that was full. Asking the waiter a recommendation he gave us not only this, he was guiding us... More

This place hands down was one of the highlights while in Spain. It was my last day and I found this place on Yelp and boy did it not disappoint. We were given a table very quickly and we ordered el menu del dia, which came with an appetizer, main course, dessert and a drink all that for only 13€.... More

I was in Madrid for work (in art) and had to organise a dinner for about ten people. A Spanish friend recommended La Tragantua and we were all so lucky he did. The dinner grew to 16 people, taking up half the restaurant, but the staff couldn't have been warmer or more helpful. The food was absolutely delicious, as was... More

Excellent place!! We made it to the restaurant around 3:30 and we're lucky enough to grab the last table. The host was very gracious and was very excited to have us. Everyone spoke excellent English and helped us with the menu. We sat right by the kitchen and watched everything come out. This made it very difficult to choose our... 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.
