This restaurant has a great atmosphere, it just has a good vibe about it since you walk through the door. Came in a summer month which means there's usually less going on but it doesn't matter, the food is great as is the decor. A nice place for a romantic meal.

After many years, I have dinned again at La Parra, a Madrid's dinning classic. I have enjoyed as I did many years ago: the food is superb, the service excellent, and the atmosphere as cosy as ever, illuminated at night with candles. It is a beautiful decorated restaurant which has maintained its soul intact through the years. Good place to... More

This was a recommendation from our hotel, and we were definitely outnumbered by Spanish speakers. This was a good thing. Lovely ham croquettes followed by venison with chanterelles and an apple and currant sauce was very good. My other half had a superb Salmorejo followed by excellent suckling pig. Their wine recommend was also very well received. Excellent service too.... More

From the jamon and fan as starters through the Jake for main and a chocolate mint dessert, every course was delicious. Friendly service, discreet but present, all round recommendation.

This was recommended to us and it didn't let us down. The restaurant is so atmospheric and romantic with comfortable seating and nice lighting. A good range of Spanish classics on the menu and a reasonably priced wine list. The service was excellent even though they didn't speak much English (and us very limited Spanish!). Lots of nice little touches... More

This place is relatively expensive, and you definitely need and appetizer as well as the main course or you're going to leave hungry. The food was very good, and excellent service.

beautifull place, great food and unbelievable selection of wines! Friendly staff, nice atmosphere. The place was full during lunchtime, it's not cheap but definitely worth the price.

We were fortunate to have been able to grab lunch before catching a flight out of Madrid. The food was excellent and worth a trip back. Try the suckling pig for something really special.

Description
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. Por la noche, las velas, luz baja y musica hace que se pueda disfrutar de una cena romantica o de amigos sin problemas de ruidos.

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.
