We recommend an appetizer while waiting for La Maga bife de chorizo (top sirloin steak) to be grilled to perfection. The restaurant’s cellar is stocked with a selection of the best Chilean wine.
Having a seal of approval, being run by its owners and watching the chefs prepare a meal make customers feel at home at La Maga .
Owing to its Italian origin, it offers great pasta al dente and a wide choice of pizza toppings. However, it also serves charcoal grilled meat and fish. Each of the two venues, on the same street, has its own décor and menu.
Eating at the tables on the sidewalk is a great option when the weather is good. Otherwise, customers will find the spacious, well-decorated restaurants quite pleasing. The wide choice of seafood needs no recommendation. Clams au gratin, shrimp pasties and salmon brochettes are but a few of the many delicious dishes on the menu whose ingredients arrive fresh from the Pacific. Wines from Chilean vineyards are the perfect pairing.
The simpler, extremely cozy and bright Buonatesta is just a block away. Italian pasta and pizza with a variety of toppings are on the menu. Whether lasagna, gnocchi, ravioli or a large mozzarella pizza are ordered, a hearty helping of homemade food is guaranteed. Craft beer, good Chilean wine or the classical pisco sour are all good complements.
These are merely three of the many options to share delicious food with family or friends in Pucón.
