Restaurante tradicional con toques innovadores. Abierto hace 32 anos pero muy cuidado. Apostamos por la cocina "honesta", poniendo gran enfasis en el producto. Carta renovada cada seis meses y siempre con sugerencias de temporada. Decoracion agradable que invita a la sobremesa, sin doble turno. Ambiente de negocios a mediodia.

Great Atmosphere with good food

Took a large party of 15 people here for dinner and we were all impressed. The atmosphere is great, a bit like dining in someones admittedly large home dining room. I tried the mixed tempura starter and then the Beef steak, which was amazing but pretty large. Would definitely come back here.

Just back from 48 hours in Madrid. Gathering with friends or business lunch? this is a super option. The place is cosy and staff are very friendly, but has that certain something that elevates it to far above your average restaurant in Madrid. We were introduced by local friends and we now make it a sure shot when we are... More

This is how my American parents would rate this lovely, warm feeling restaurant. Soft music in the background, candle light and a corner table made for a relaxing setting. We found the staff to be attentive and willing to guide us through the menu. The hake and steak were both prepared and presented well. Wine recommendation was perfect. An excellent... More

Many good restaurants come and go, especially in Madrid, but this is long established for good reason. The menu is relatively short but varied, the cooking first class and the service and atmosphere without fault. It opens at 9.00pm, almost all other diners were local and people without a reservation were turned away because there is only one sitting, which... More

La Parra was recommended by a local as "special" , it delivered. We enjoyed a delicious meal, lovely wines and the atmosphere was fantastic. Given it was a slower night, during holiday, we did get the sense the staff was ready to go home, so don't take the latest reservation time, as you might feel a bit rushed. However, on... More

Six of us went for dinner last night. The menu is a type of fusion international with a Spanish twist. The highlight of the starters was the Toyota soup. Really excellent. For the main course the fish dishes were the best. Three of us had the tempura cod which was delicious. Service was good and we were not kept waiting... More

I've been with few guests at this restaurants a couple of times. Good and fast service, great jamon and good food. The tartare was the only plate that didn't thrill me so far. As the establishment is small I reccomend to reserve a table in case of a weekend visit.

The concierge at our hotel recommended La Parra for dinner our first night in Madrid. We wanted to eat at a characteristically Spanish restaurant and this was an excellent choice. We were the only tourists in the place which filled up with locals by the end of our meal. They did have an English language menu which was most helpful.... More

Sorry to parrot so many of the reviews but this is a lovely restaurant. Very comfortable and stylish without being fusty. Excellent food and wine list. The suckling pig is a must. Two tips. You need to make clear whether you are ordering a starter each or sharing in the Spanish way. Some of the starters are big portions and... More

Staying in Chamberi

Neighborhood Profile
Chamberi
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighborhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
