We have visited La Parilla a few years ago when it was all bright and new. The first thing that strike you now when entering and looking around is that it's all a bit tired and worn. I must say that the service also seems a bit odd and confused. From the outset there was a strange feeling of distance... More

Relaxed hen party of 20, for set lunch. Serving staff very rude were told that we had to go and order and pay for our drinks at the bar if we were splitting the bill and paying separate. This was before we ordered! To get our attention he shouted this at us! Got up to order food I had the... More

Came here with my friend for lunch, haven't been to La Parilla for over a year but thought I'd give it a go again as last time the food didn't meet our expectations. Ordered Calamari to start and Duck Breast for the main. I can only say for the price and venue the meal was average.. I have had better... More

I am shocked. We have used this restaurant many times but our visit on 21 February will be last for a long time.. We had the lunch time menu £11.95 for two courses but that is no excuse. Ordered Andulucian style fish of the day and it was awful. It was so small and unappealing. Kick myself now for not... More

I had Scallops with bacon and croutons to start, had difficulty finding the crouton(s) on my plate, it was ok but not one of the best Scallop starters. For main I had the Monkfish, it was tasty but I expected it to come in one piece. If you wanted vegetables as a side dish you had to pay £2.95, which... More

Beautiful restaurant with views over the bay. Myself and husband chose the set lunch meal for £11.95 for a starter and main meal. Service was very fast and the staff don't leave any dirty plates on your table for very long at all. Meals brought to the table very quickly and all cooked well as hot. The chips were amazing!

The salad starter was OK, but the main course had zero taste. Tried adding salt but it was just awful. Have been to many of these restaurants such as the Caesars in Pentyrch and the Miskin Arms, but this is absolutely the pits. Not worth 10℅ of what we paid.
