This was one of my favourite areas of Madrid. The plaza itself is very nice surrounded by lots of cafes and restaurants. However take a walk down the streets surrounding the plaza and you will find many bars and places to eat. Could come back...More

This square of Santa Ana is one of my favourite corners in Madrid. At least when I look for a "busy" corner and not for a "hidden" one (I will go over hidden corners in Madrid in next contributions) for the first beer of the...More

The plaza is surrounded by restaurants where you can opt to eat inside (air-conditioned) or in their outside tables in the Plaza. It is very popular and has options from breakfast to night dining. You are never rushed in this very relaxed atmosphere.

Several restautants always open even when most close. Relatively inexpensive sangria and ham and cheese plates available for a snack. In the evenings, varieties of street performers pass through, from flame throwers, and of course musicians.

We walked through this Plaza several times during our stay in Madrid. We even stopped at one of the outdoor cafes for a drink and appetizers. It has far less traffic than many of the other plazas in the area. It is more relaxed and...More

The Plaza de Santa Ana surrounds are plenty of nice places to drink something of have a dinner for every budget. Get earlier (9:00 p.m or a bit before) to get a table. After 10:00 p.m everything will be full.

There are some cafes and restaurants. Not the best food you can get in Madrid but ok for a drink outside.

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 —

They're all ok... Depends on how you like tapas or if you prefer raciones. I like the tapas at Lateral but the service sucks big time. If you feel like eating tapas somewhere else you can go to other places near Sol, like... More

We had dinner at one of the restaurants on the plaza (don't remember which one, but facing the big hotel it was on the right side). I had delicious grilled salmon and a salad. There are lots of "simple choices" with fish or... More
