We sniffed around Plaza Santa Anna and neighborhoods nearby endlessly, and Lateral (by far) gave us our best café meal. The prices were a bit higher than most, but the food was creative and tasted superb. They have a nice table arrangement that gives you some psychic space from your neighbors.

We ate at the outside seating in the square which was great. The food was really good. We had a fired eggplant dish with a gazpacho sauce that was great. The prices were reasonable too. I would definitely eat here again.

I love it! Every time I come to Madrid I must come here! Lovely tapas and great price! This time the service in the terrace was a bit poor since the waiters were very busy and forgot some orders or took a lot to take the bill..however the quality is excellent and overweights this!

This retaurant is full of youg people on the first level and out of doors. But if they allow, take a seat in the quiet downstairs area. The tables made for two persons are used for four, but this works, especially if you do not order water with your drinks. The sangria was not as flavorful as we have had... More

In a Plaza full of wonderful tapas restaurants, Lateral is the best. The duck ravioli is a taste treat beyond compare. It has the highest quality sashimi. And that is just to mention two!

We had enjoyed several tapas meals last year in Barcelona and so we wanted to share the experience with our traveling companions when we visited Madrid. Upon the recommendation of a local hotel staffer we tried Lateral. Ordering was easy with the English menu available. We were not disappointed and the casual atmosphere added to our enjoyment of the good... More

The location is very beautiful and the service very friendly and fast. The restaurant makes a very clean impression. But the most important thing is the taste of its food. All dishes that we had were flavorless and boring. Even the bread (you pay extra) was a joke. The hamburgers, tastles small meat balls. Even the jamon croquettes like i... More

The interior was tasteful (outside dining also an option but not guaranteed unless you book), and more importantly there was a stand alone cocktail station so I was happy. the menu was pretty much all tapas but offered an assortment of dishes, most of which had small and large options. The cocktails were aesthetically pleasing and made for easy drinking, perfectly... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Huertas
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.
