As its name indicates, the highlight of this restaurant is the grill. Right in the heart of Madrid’s Barrio de las Letras, La Parrilla del Mago is a good option to enjoy quality meat with friends or family in an informal environment.


La Parrilla del Mago is small and with a fun decoration featuring vignettes of cows, cardboard cow heads and wood-panelled walls, along with recycled furniture?tables, chairs and wall benches.

The grill boss is Argentinian Luca Rodríguez. With top-quality Roxa meat from the Somiedo mounts, the range of dishes is exquisite. As a starter we recommend creole pastries and grilled artichoke hearts. Then try a classic steak, baby lamb ribs or a delicious brazed chicken macerated with spices for a week. If you don’t feel like grilled food, order veal escalope a la Milanaise or the baby lamb stew. And if you’re more into fish, the menu features grilled fish of the day.

Desserts include, among others, pannacotta and mango tiramisu.

A meal at La Parrilla del Mago is about 35 euros, all included.
