Very good fillet... first comes first: starter was good; different salads and other starters... really nothing to complain. Starters have size and taste of a main dish. However I was really missing some meat. The fillet was prepared properly, without killing the meat with sauces. The only problem is the size: 300g.

Good place to eat good and fresh meat from Argentina. Nice place, friendly staff, and well decorated. Rapid service compared to the country average time. A bit expensive though.

Definitely this is the place where I had the best dinner in Dakar during my visits so far. The steak was excellent, the service and waiters were very friendly. Even we came 1 hour before official open hours and they allowed us to enter and order at lest beer. The environment is very nice. Inside you forget that you are... More

One of the best value for money places, especially for meat lovers, although considered amongst high end restaurants of Dakar. The neat setup with the view on the fire is awesome. Highly recommended .

Best meat place in West Africa . The meat quality is truly great. The service is decent but the chap taking the order needs some training as he tends to patronise the client for no reason. There is nothing wrong to ask the good questions before making the order (rather that than making the wrong choice)

Service was fantastic and the food quality was outstanding. Four people, four entrees, three deserts and a couple bottles of wine. Not a drop or crumb was left. Really worth the visit.

It was my second visit of La Parilla and it's always a great experience. The meat is perfect and the staff very friendly.

I personally preferred the outdoor at night time. Order the combination of different meats. The order comes in a sizzling and brazing marmitte

Probably the best local steak I have every had in Dakar. The filet of local beef was very tender for African beef. The plate was very well decorated and the grilled vegetables were excellent. For desert the fondant au chocolate was very good. The restaurant is a bit pricey, but all good food.

Starters were nice but the steak was awful. I asked for medium and I got a well down a bit hard on the outside. The second time It came also bad. Conclusion, try to avoid the steaks!!!
