Good value dinner and special atmosphere

We arrived just before 9pm when the restaurant was still quiet. It filled up quickly afterwards. This is not the place for intimate dining or haute cuisine, but we liked sort of "raw" atmosphere supposed to be authentic for Gallicia. We enjoyed the Albarino wine (strangely served in iced bowls) and... read more

This is a very authentic place as far as Galician cuisine is concerned. Works best if you go with at least 4 people so you can order many plates and share. Service is prompt, and, typically Sapnish, without smiles.

Excellent value for money, hard to find in this place of town. Authentic fresh Galician seafood and welcoming staff. Will definitely go back next time I visit Madrid.

We came here the first evening with a group of 5 extremely hungry students that had just arrived in Madrid. We found this lovely place in the street of our hostel. Lots of bread, meat, tapas and drinks (sangria and wine) later, we still had to pay less than €20 each. Three of us took a mixed grill plate, but... More

As a family of 5 we stumbled across this restaurant by chance and we were not disappointed. With a small, rustic feel we were made to feel welcome. Menus are available in a variety of languages. Wine is served in a little bowl which is rather novel and the food was lovely. After a few meat heavy days we wanted... More

Came here after a recommendation from a friend who lived in Madrid for a year who said this was her favourite restaurant - it certainly didn't disappoint. Unique rustic decor, wine served in little bowls - the place has a very authentic feel. The food was delicious, full of flavour and felt like I was eating a home-cooked meal. We... More

It is quite touristic place .it's included in all guides.someone can complain that it has lost originality but in reality Maceira deserves 5 stars....the Galician tapas are all excellent : el pulpo las navajas los medinolles ... The serving is quite fast and rough but honestly who cares if you want to try the best traditional Galician tapas

This is my top favorite restaurant in Madrid because it has great Galician sea food. However, be prepared for a few unpleasant details: first of you, you will sit on not very comfortable wooden benches and very close to other patrons with limited space for moving around. Secondly, if you get there too late (and I mean after 9pm), you... More

I came to here by recommendation and at first I was a bit disappointed, as I thought it would be a restaurant and not a bar. Therefore I was expecting a properly set up table, with table cloth, napkins and all that. The place is tiny and packed, tables are very close to each other and that there's not much... More

I had some of the best cod croquets and calamari of my trip in this restaurant. However, I also had one of the most indifferent waitresses of my trip. They close in the early evening for a few hours but didn’t explain this so I ordered a drink right before they started clearing up around me and ushering people out.... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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 neighborhood, 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.
