Great Flavor !!!

A waiter down in the Melia's Hotel recomended this place to me, so I gave it a visit with my Family. Was very impress with the speed we were seated, (the place was "pack", and it was a Tuesday). La Parilla has a diverse menú, it's a bit pricy, but it has great food. There are three rooms... read more

We love La Parilla, it really does provide excellent food. Everything we've had here has been delicious. Our favorite is Churrasco steak - it is the best in the area! It's so large that you can easily split it between two people. It is not cheap however, at $24.99. There are other places in town that do Churrasco for as... More

On our way from vacationing at El Conquistador, we stopped by LA parrrilla. This is our favorite restaurant and every time we are in Puerto Rico we make sure we come for lunch or dinner. The ambience is great and the food is better! Ask for a table in from of the beach. Very nice. Staff is very nice. Today... More

Want to feel the ocean breeze as your taste buds explode? Then La Parilla is your place. After a day of swimming at Luquillo beach (literally 20 ft away across the two-lane road), our family of 6 were immediately seated and began feasting on local cuisine and seafood. The dishes were huge with everyone sharing a bit off of their... More

Authentic PR experience. We sat outside facing the ocean and could not have had a more lovely view. My husband and I split the whole lobster - amazing. Plantain cups filled with seafood were very good as well. Fun experience but very pricey.

I liked the Mahi Mahi in butter. It was one of the cheaper dishes of fish and it was not fried! You can also get fresh lobster and shrimp dishes but more expensive. The cheapest items were the fried dishes but why would you order fresh fish that was then fried?

On our visit to Puerto Rico we stayed at the Rio Mar and went around each evening to taste the local cuisine. We are SO glad we stopped in here. The food is out of this world. I had the Pechuga (chicken breast stiffed with sweet plantains, 2 cheeses and a guava glaze) with the rice and beans, and I... More

I went with my husband, our two children, and my father in law for lunch. There was not a kids menu. We got a big appetizer for the kids to eat off of and an entree for each adult. The food was great. However, the bill was $100. For lunch. And the kids were just eating off our plates. I... More

The food was outstanding as well as the drink. The waiter was a little forgetful, but since he was cute we forgave him. The best meal I've had in PR so far!! Great energy! Stunning presentation of meals!

My family and I made a recent visit to Puerto Rico and had lunch at La Parilla in Luquillo. I had been yearning for a good red snapper and La Parilla served up a plate of stuffed red snapper that was to die for! First of all, the fish was big enough for two. To top that off, it was... More
