Overpriced tapas, unfriendly service, but good vino. If you want something typical Spanish, don’t come here.

Because the restaurant was full, the bartender suggested us to stay at the bar. He served us excellent wine and advised us on the tapas which were delicious. We really loved the place.

We have a very good compost and very delicious drinks at this 200 Madrid taps bar. Just spending some time there might take you back to another time. The drinks were delicious as well. I especially liked the bartender who is very friendly.

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 —
