“We would go back tomorrow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

At this restaurant you will get a sense of everyday life in Puerto Rico as families celebrate birthdays and guests are welcomed by the owner, waiters and waitresses. You feel the camaraderie and warmth, as if you are in your mother's kitchen. You will definitely get your money's worth as far as portion size and taste. Don't miss this great restaurant.

“Super tasty and very friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Loved the food - pork stuffed with beef in a wine and guava sauce was divine, seafood mofongo was to die for. Cocktails weren't anything special however.

“Good Restaurant - near Gran Melia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by many of the locals, and the food was good. We ate dinners and lunch the next day. Must have the empanadas - and loved their salad!

“Don't let the exterior fool you”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Really, it's okay to stop at the kioskos in Luquillo. The food at El Parilla was incredible. Ask for outside seating for a more enjoyable dining experience.
