Fantastic service from waiter Riaan and fantastic food as always.A must visit when in Riebeeck Kasteel.

Had the MOST! enjoyable lunch for 5 (and a half), delicious food and attentive service from Rian in lovely surroundings. Not a run of the mill menu, highly recommended and a credit to the valley. We had a toddler with us and she was served...very promptly with an appetising meal! Hats off to all!!More

The last two years have been understandably tough on restaurants, but that shouldn't be an invitation to let standards fall. For a time, La Parilla stood out from the pack, but our last two visits gave us the impression that something is amiss. The admittedly...somewhat rustic decor is now looking frankly uncared for, the menus are old and rather too well-used for these COVID-sensitive times, and service is haphazard and lacking professionalism. At our last visit for lunch, we both ordered dishes that included avocado - sliced in the case of the quesadillas and guacamole accompanying the fishcake - and were shocked to be served avocado as hard as a brick. That's seriously not on.More

Great food, great drinks, great service. Came here for an early lunch with my husband and baby and the ambience brought back some nice memories of a trip to South America. Riaan provided kind, attentive service, and we felt relaxed and welcome. Definitely recommended!

We stayed in Riebeek Kasteel for 3 nights and visited La Parrilla 2 nights in a row - that's how good it is! The food is great - relaxed, fresh, vibrant Mexican/Mediterranean vibe - the wine is all local from the Swartland region, the outside...courtyard is cosy with incredible views of the mountains, and the service is excellent. Our waiter Riaan looked after us on both visits and was friendly, attentive, and helpful. We will definitely return to La Parrilla and will be recommending it to anyone visiting Riebeek Kasteel and the local area.More

Thank you La Parilla (and especially Riaan) for a very special night with live music, amazing food and the best pina colada I've ever had!
