We found this place a couple years ago and it immediately became a place that we visit when we are in Madrid. It opens at 9 p.m. The decor with the menus on wooden discs (traditional also available) and the wooden stools make you feel at home. The pimiento peppers are amazing!! We also do the jamon and croquetas. And... More

After a cold day in Madrid a meal at the Taberna Maceira was an excellent restorative. The food is hearty and simple served in generous portions and accompanied with some beautiful crusty bread. No wine list to speak of but the wine by the glass was OK. The dining space is pretty basic but OK and the service was brisk.

Lots of character to this spot in a road full of tapas bars. The bagpipes confused us for a while, but once we got to grips with the wine served in earthenware pots and the rustic ambience, the food arrived. We ordered dishes to share between us and as I didn't take notes, I can't remember exactly what we ate,... More

This is very "typical" food of Galacia, the northwest of Spain. It is VERY informal and you must be willing to make the best with a Spanish menu. Carne (beef) was by far the best dish - fried so that it is crisp on the outside and perfectly tender inside. It is served with peppers and fries. We also had... More

Their English was a bit spotty, but the food was very good. We ordered tapas and were happy with the variety and flavor, especially the soup, the croquettes, and the hake. Toward the end of the evening, the proprietress brought all the tables a flaming brandy drink on the house - I think it is queimada - which we enjoyed... More

My old, good memories of this place are only that: memories. Tonight the food was barely acceptable, and the service could have been much better. As they say, you should not try to revisit the places were you were once happy.

My wife and I visited the restaurant for lunch and had salted peppers and a plate of cheese with bread and a bowl of dry white wine. Yes a bowl which adds to the ambiance.

This is a Galician bar with small dishes from the NW of Spain. The atmosphere is quaint, with bag pipe infused music playing, and the staff friendly. They did not speak much English, but they had a English menu. The food was good but not spectacular. We had a Galician soup, razor clams, and a pork/potato dish.

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.
