Wonderful views and the food is good. Service was a bit slow and caring. The menu is casual as most restaurants.

An appetizer we didn't order arrived we ate id t thinking it was a free nibble...it was delicious but I still don'rt know what it was...we paid for it happily.

We arrive and nobody hosting but after we asked if there was anything available we were told there was a space for one. One of the waiters saw us but did not look like he cared. So! We decide to take the menu and seat ourselves. 10 minutes later the waiter came and just ask: you know what you want?... More

We visited La Parcela twice - for drinks one evening and then another night for dinner. The view is wonderful with the ocean on both sides of you. The staff was very attentive on both occasions. I specifically wanted fish tacos and they were delicious. Very nice restaurant, definitely recommend.

The only good thing about our visit to La Parcela was the great view. Our dinner started off with mussels and 2 glasses of wine. The mussels were in a white wine sauce. The sauce was good, mussels were over cooked and barely anything in the shells. Our server was not present to bring us napkins, but was able to... More

Came here on the recommendation of the hostess at Por Que No when we couldn't get in due to no reservation. The restaurant is your basic open air building, but is very quaint and has great views of 2 sides of the ocean. I ordered the tuna, and I have to say it was one of the best tuna steaks... More

I've never eaten more than appetizers here, but they have a really lovely Pina Colada, and the views are spectacular. Located on a point, with ocean on both sides, the last time we were there a troup of white faced monkeys was visiting. Their antics were adorable! The setting alone makes this place worth while.

My friend and I were in the mood for some seafood. I had heard of this restaurant and had seen it from the water while surfing. We arrived just at sunset. The dining area has a view of the ocean from either side. Looking north or south. The sunset that night on the north side was amazing. The service here... More
