La Parada lives up to the hype. The food was excellent and the view was even better. Ask to sit with a view of Table Mountain. Our waitress Veronia was excellent and we had a great sundowner at the V&A waterfront.More

Having had a great evening on Saturday we returned on Monday lunchtime for drinks. Not only did we have to wait a very long time to be served when it did happen they were out of stock of the wine we wanted. The under manager...came to try and placate us which was fine but should not be necessary in a quiet restaurant. I got the feeling they were more interested in the higher spend table behind us. How can standards vary so much from one day to another. Get a grip, you are only as good as your last experience.!!More
