The food was absolutely delicious (especially the torta pastor, which I had)! The food is authentic Mexican food and the staff are attentive and friendly. I plan to frequent this restaurant in the future.

I had been looking for a great Authentic Mexican restaurant for many years in Madrid and Spain and this one just blew me away! The nachos were delicious, the mole tacos flavorful, and the Torta de Tinga was so authentic that I am going back tomorrow!

Cosy, small place with simple interior. The waiter recomended 3 dishes for me and my girlfriend to share, and we loved all of them. I also recomend the pacifico beer, it was lovely along with the food. A must try if you like mexican food.

This place was recommended to me and my friends by Mexican guy. The whole restaurant/bar is also owned by a Mexican. Meal was great and service even better. The guy patiently explained us everything we didn't know, so we could choose just the right meal for us.

A nice getaway from being inundated with local cuisine, which is awesome, but when you need a break from it, come here. I suggest getting a number of items to share. You won't regret the visit.

Flavors are there. Pretty similar to a Cubana Torta from Mexico. Luckily cheese is bomb on this country as well. Chipotle sauce us on point. And selection on Mexican beers. Pastor is almost there, few tweaks will be perfect

We went in after seeing the place had good reviews but were highly disappointed. We ordered the ceviche and some sandwich that was unclear what its content was. The ceviche was a salty cold tomato soup with bits of cooked fish and olives in it served in a glass as if it was a drink. I felt sick after 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.
