Arrived in Pucon after a long drive just in time for a late lunch. La Maga is well located and casual and the service efficient. We had sausages and provoleta as appetizers, both heavy dishes, but they were good and enough to share. We all had meat, after all, this is a "Parrilla". The filet mignon and the lomo vetado...

This restaurant was bustling with energy. Excellent steak options and quality service. Felt a little rushed but once we settled in, the pace adjusted fine. Good location for walking around the downtown area before or after the meal.

The meat is very good, but it is heavily overpriced: we paid $180.000 CLP for 4 adults + one 2-year-old child. The garnishes are poor. The service is good, but the infrastructure not so much: it has no parking lot (we had to park 3 blocks away and with no security at all - thefts are fairly common in Chile),... More

This restaurant has a limited menu. The portions ar elarge. The meat is good. But in all it seems a bit overrated to us. The service was good. It was quite busy.

This was somehow only the second time in 12 years that we ate at La Maga. It was for my birthday lunch. This pisco was just right. We shared a filet mignon with pepper sauce. It was cooked perfectly. The live musician was really talented. Pricey and packed but it was worth the splurge.

Went with the wife. I have been coming to eat at this place for about 8 years now and never dissapoints. The prices have gone up considerably though. It is quite the expensive restaurant now a days. Friendly and attentive staff. We had the Picaña a la Tabla, plenty of meat to shate between 2-3 people with a Ensalda Mixta.... More

Went to La Maga with group of friends to celebrate a birthday and were attended to with fantastic service from the second we arrived. The steak and sides were recommended and did not disappoint, excellent wine list topped it off! Must visit whilst in Pucon :)

If you want steak, this is the place. Very large restaurant with lively action -- people come here for great food and fun. The selection of steaks is overwhelming, but when in doubt, a staff member or members who understands English will help you. Their number one requested meal is rib eye but this in not what rib eye is... More

I went here cause my father is a meat lover, he was really satisfied with the food we ordered. The size of the meat its really good and worths every dollar or chilean peso that was expended.
