If you eat here, make sure to order the restaurant's specialty--surliness. We loved our dinner here with friends a couple of years ago, but this time the staff practically threw the food on our table. We had to laugh, but....

We were somewhat reluctant to dine here. Although we were walking in the Parque Retiro around lunchtime and were hoping to find a place in the area with good pulpo, we were hesitant to consider Maceiras, as several recent reviewers documented poor experiences with brusque or indifferent service. We ended up on that street anyway, looking for a different restaurant,... More

We were not able to make it to Galicia on our trip to Spain, but we at least wanted to try some of the food. This restaurant was recommended to us as a possible option. We were glad we took the chance. The atmosphere is extremely casual, almost pub-like, The service was not what I would call "friendly" -- more... More

It's a restaurant for not so formal gathering, kind of sporty bar for drinking. Most of the diners are young, and in casual wear, so families with kids will look weird inside. If you can read spanish, then u may read the 'menu' (more like decorations) hang on the window, it's kind of a unique part of the restaurant. But... More

This casual eatery served us very tasty Galician food for lunch last October. The Spanish menu was written on one side of a circle of thin wood; the drinks menu on the other side. We asked and found that there was a paper menu written in English and German. Between the two, we could figure out what everything was. We... More

Food was very salty, with visible rock salt, and the chicken tasted like airplane food. When we told the wait staff the food was too salty, we were told this is the style, and told this is a rude manner as well. Too salty is too salty in my opinion (also we've been in Spain a while and this was... More

The worst service. They are so unfriendly that is not worth spend your money there. And for what I can read here the food is not any good. They treated us so bad the first minutes that we decided to leave before asking for anything. Thank god!! The neighborhood is full of many fantastic places. Son tan antipaticas que lograron... More

As a "middle aged tourist" I must take exception to the bad reviews. This is a must for us whenever we visit Madrid, excellent food at reasonable prices. They play loud (and beautiful Celtic, like Scots or Irish) Galacian music because, in case you missed it, it's a Galacian restaurant. Forget TripAdvsior reviews here and look at the facts. Opens...

I went to Maceira last night with friends.The place is nice,the waiters not so kind and the food very average.we had the peppers de padrón that was tasty, patatas bravas,nothing special, calamares fritas,that was ok,and rice with prawns that was very very salty and not tasty at all. White wine was so and so. In total,this place is nothing special.

This place filled up quickly shortly after 8. I cannot understand the attraction. The food was Spanish classics, but it was not good. (Cold empanada.) The waitress was very particular about where she allowed people to sit. They played Celtic music very loud. The clientele was mostly middle-aged tourists.
