This is not a touristic restaurant. This is spanish home style food served in a very modest and old fashioned restaurant. Portions are also very simple but the best thing is that all is delicious and cooked in traditional way. Real spanish food. Lunchtime is...More

I don’t now if you get what you pay for at this place but I can put it this way, the food is cheap and the food is not so good. From what I can understand is this a place the Spanish people enjoy though,...More

I've been struggling finding good Spanish restaurants in Madrid during this visit. It seems as if most spots have been replaced by "tapas" restaurants including a few of my favorites. The weekend menu was 14€. Gazpacho, asado and flan were amazing. This a true Spanish...More

We came across this restaurant when looking for a place to eat after seeing a nearby flamenco show. It had good google reviews and these were well justified. Expect nothing fancy here, just simple tasty food at a good price. We had the 3 course...More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Madrid. Their prices are very affordable, and the menu is like a book--so many options. Everything is fresh and authentic, and the waiters are great as well. All the vegetable "primeros" are great, but I...More

When entering the restaurant it doesn’t really strike you as a place making an effort. But the opposite is true. It may look like a cheap joint. An it is cheap. But the food is well prepared - they know what they do. My oxtail...More

Be prepared to wait in line before being allowed to enter this outstanding center for Spanish cuisine with a stable and growing cadre of followers. But once inside, you can expect excellent food confections at quite reasonable prices. Go during lunch time ( 1:30-4:30PM) weekdays...More

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 —
