It was a windy evening on the V&A, everywhere seemed busy, we ventured into La Parada and were immediately met with high ceilings. My wife chose a chicken fillet dish on skewers , tender and mouth watering flavours, beautifully cooked. I went for the tapas, fresh garlic and chilly prawns , beef rib in a thick rich sauce and spicy duck croquettes, The flavours were amazing . Our host suggested we try black label beer and a bottle of water, Although slightly more than what we were paying at the waterfront. It was definitely worth it. Under £40

Four of us for tapas lunch. We were looked after by Queen who added real value to the afternoon with her friendly and accommodating table service. We had a spread between the four of us that included the tuna tataki, pork belly, grilled calamari, miso aubergine, rib eye and prawns. All the dishes well presented, in good time and tasty. Together with a few G&T's this, the view and Queen's service made for a very pleasant experience and future return. Bill all in all including a 30% gratuity was R1,690 which we considered great value for money.

My dad and I went to eat here and I can't understand how this place is still afloat. We were shown to our table and it took 20 minutes for a waiter to tend to us. We ordered drinks (coke, bottle of water and glass of wine). The coke arrived after 10 minutes, but we had to repeatedly ask the waiter for the water and wine. We ordered our food and it took FOREVER. When it finally came, mine was ice cold and it tasted disgusting. I sent it back, it came back 10 minutes later, still cold. I decided to just keep my mouth shut and eat it. I had the mushroom pasta btw. I couldn't get halfway through it when I ran to the bathroom and threw up. When we got the bill out mouths literally hung open. The waiter had neglected to tell my father how much the tiger prawns cost, and much to our surprise, 4 tiger prawns cost R450!!! He also told my father that he had to choose starch to go with his meal, not telling us that you pay R50 for that side of starch. Not to mention a 200ml can of coke costs R25! For the price we paid you would expect top quality service and food, but to say we were disappointed would be an understatement. So our bill came to R833. We will never be coming back. The food and the service is terrible. It is a complete rip-off! If I could give 0 stars, I would.

Absolutely terrible service. Even though the food was average the customer service experience for a local is absolutely terrible. Drink orders taken after 30mins and then only arriving 15mins later. A few dishes were ordered and not finished. When requesting a take away, was told that there are no takeaway containers. What was given was pieces of foil for our own packing. Does one expect a creamy mash to be taken away in foil? Upon the manager coming through, we were told that they do not offer all dishes as take aways! Basically not being allowed a take away for what I paid for? Generally more focus being placed on an international crowd in which the above would not be required, but definitely not for a local for a simple take away! First time experience and definitely pathetic on both manager and staff. PS see attached the takeaways

Nice restaurant well located but the service was a bit slow. We waited quite a lot to get the meals and with no forks to eat, we asked and had to wait for 5min to start eating. Then when we received the bill, the waitress have already encircled 10% for the tips and we asked her the reason and said that because we were 6 we should put 10% but we wanted to put a bit less than 10% because we were not so happy in general about the meals quantity and the service (we didn’t even eat during the peak hours).

We visited as a group of 4 three times. The tapas are excellent, and in particular the ham croquettes. On our last visit one of our party ordered the rack of lamb and medium. The first offering was burnt and overcooked. The second came out partly rare. But this was a one off in our 3 visits. The staff are great fun and the location and atmosphere is very good. BUT on our first visit, we ordered chips/fries. The waiter asked if we wanted ketchup and mayo - we said yes. No mention of being charged so imagine our surprise to find a charge for both. There is also not mention on the menu. I spoke with the manager who apologised and said many visitors complain but the owners refuse not to charge despite the feedback. It was not expensive but out of principle no restaurant should charge for ketchup and mayo

We emailed the restaurant before booking to check that they could be able to accommodate me being coeliac and vegetarian. We received a reply really quickly from Ramone saying that this wouldn't be a problem. In the restaurant I was talked through the menu by Nipho, our brilliant waitor, and made a tapas style meal from sides. I had the sweet patatas bravas, cauliflower mash, broccolini and mixed vegetables and for desert we shared the pistachio coated cheesecake which was delicious and tart. My boyfriend had the mushroom pasta and said that it was the best pasta dish that he had whilst in South Africa.

Visited here for late lunch and couldn't have been happier. Food is awesome, portions are much larger than back home in the UK, and if you get served by Thando you're in for a treat. She's a football guru and has an infectious sense of humour. We'll definitely be back!

We ate here a couple of times while staying on the V&A waterfront. You have a choice of spanish tapas or meals of chicken, burgers, meats and a good selection of salads. All priced very reasonably as is the norm in Cape Town. The restaurany is beautifully positioned and gets really busy so some good advice is to make a booking not just turn up. Special mention to Edith who looked after us.

I popped in here for brunch and sat facing Table Mountain. Lots of places have views but this is one of the better ones. Food is fresh, reasonably priced and there are a good selection of small plates as well as meals. The outside areas take the form of a large patio and it's quite a clam feeling space.

We were greeted by a lovely man called Luvuyo he was a very happy smiley guy (he was in training). He recommended what dishes to have with the tapas we had decided to have (I’m glad he did as it went very well with the food we chose) the food was amazing everything was presented so well ! Delicious !!! We will definitely be returning. Kelly & her team are doing a great job! X

Located in the heart of the Waterfront we had a lovely lunch at La Parada. Attentive staff and a good range of food on the menu it was the perfect spot for light or more substantial food. I had the Fillet Tagliata (beef salad) and it was delicious.

Visited here at a busy time of day and unfortunately our experience was not good. Poor service, dropped glasses and meals, wrong food orders and steaks not cooked to order.The food when we got it was of a good quality but the whole experience was not up to standard.

Google should really allow users to give a 0 star rating as this would have been more accurate for this restaurant. I am writing as a concerned patron who used to frequent this specific branch before the pandemic turned our whole lives upside down. How disappointing on my return....what changed since opening ??? So many out of stocks, rather inform the guests of what you do have as this list is much shorter. Waiters running around , but simply just not enough staff on a weekend, dirty windows, which makes me anxcious to even think what the kitchen looks like,kitchen closed in the middle of they day as they are understaffed I assume, or..? Stop only relying on tourists , there are "locals" who want to enjoy your venue too !! Get your act together, there are many other good restaurants
