After searching through the Internet and magazines to find the perfect place to take my boyfriend for his birthday I decided on La Parilla in JBH.
The date fell in the middle of Ramadan and when I called for a reservation I was told that due to Ramadan there was no entertainment. Apparently there is usual belly dance type entertainment.
We arrived at 8pm (thurs eve) and we were the first into the restaurant. As it was very quiet we asked of we could walk the grounds of JBH first and come back later. They were very happy for us to do this and we got some great pictures of the Burj al Arab on our walk.
We were seated near to the window which had perfect views of burj al arab and a marina and very quickly our drinks order was taken.
I placed my handbag on the floor beside me and a waiter ran over and gave me a cushion to put my bag on!
We ordered 8 tapas style starters, a steak and a mixed grill. The waiter didn't have a pad and paper but memorised the whole order (including some adjustments) and repeated it back to us! Amazing service!
We were worried our order may be slightly wrong as we ordered so much and he didn't write it down but everything came and was perfect.
The chef gave us a 'complimentary starter' before bringing out our very nice and well presented tapas. The steaks/mixed grill was cooked to perfection.
The ambience was perfect too.
We were too full for dessert but there was a great selection.
As it was my boyfriends birthday the delivered a chocolate cake (enough to feed 4!) for us to have. Which we had boxed to take home.
The chef came out before we settled the bill to ensure everything was ok with out meals. A very personal touch.
I was meaning to tell me boyfriend about the entertainment but totally forgot as the night was perfect. The hostess apologises as we were leaving that there was no entertainment.
Total bill with a bottle of wine was around 1400dhs. Every penny was worth it!
(Entertainer book has buy one get one free meals for here too).
Thank you la Parilla for my best meal in Dubai.
