Food is ok, although the croquettes arrived half warm half cold. The Service from the waiter is poor (mainly attitude), ( current tense, we are still here but felt so compelled to write a review!!). The paella is good nothing special. We felt unwelcome, cannot understand the previous good reviews??? Plenty of better places in Madrid.

Had few disappointing meals in this restaurant. Terrible food with really bad flavours. There's this pineapple dish with prawns, that was a disaster! Pineapple piece wasn't even cut and cleaned properly, it still had the skin around it! It was also covered in some gross pink dressing! Chickpea dish with meat was mostly thick pieces of fat and bones! Everything... More

The server was very honest about the different food they had in terms of its strangeness. We had the seafood appetizer and pork sausages for starters followed by lobster entrees ending it with their recommended dessert drinks in coffee. Friendly service and decent prices.

We were around Sol, so we had a look around and decided for this place. we ordered for 3 tapas: Jamon croquettes, the shrimp omelette & baby calamari. I found the omelette extremely oily, not bad in taste though and the croquettes a bit heavier than in other places. the service was nice considering it was very full. make sure... More

Me and my friend went to this cozy restaurant to eat our first paella, and at first bite the flavours exploded! A lot of food with perfect cooked shellfish. The staff was very kind and effective. Recommend to people who want to eat good week cooked food in a relaxed placing

Been here numerous times and have always enjoyed it. Sometimes just get their great salad and a tapa with their very well priced wine. The lunch (dia) comes in enormous portions with wine/beer. The only item I have ordered I did not care for was their bland paella. Very friendly staff and good food at great prices. I visited some... More

This restaurant offers the usual Spanish tapas such as tortilla, freshly made and croquetas etc.. it is good but not exceptionally different from the other places Whereas their steak is absolutely delicious and the portions are not for the faint hearted!! 14 euros for that amount of meat is a very decent value People next to us we're sharing it......

Another enjoyable night in these local tapas bars. We went here for an evening meal got a seat and ordered some drinks. The atmosphere was buzzing with people coming and going. The staff were very friendly and kept our glasses topped up. We ordered paella for tea and what a plateful we got. It was lovely and well worth a... 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.
