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!!!

Excellent steak restaurant. Good service and great tasteful dishes. Friendly staff and a great choice of steaks. The combination of meat dishes is great and will fulfill your hunger. Nice touch to bring the hot cheese sauce out. Definitely a place where you have to go.

The food and service at this little restaurant were way beyond expectations. It is a little pricey but by far the best I've had in Dakar so far. The steaks are excellent and the sausages were among the best. Well worth the trip.

This restaurant is situated in the centre of Dakar, close to the Presidential Palace. It says that the meat is imported from South America (Argentine Grill) and you can taste that! Although it is the month of Ramadan you can still sit on the terrace outside the restaurant. The owner chef discusses himself if you are early (19.30h) the menu... More

This restaurant is a little gem of a find. Great service and friendly ambience. The quality of meat served is superb. I had Chorizo to start and the Lomo for main served with mash. I didn't want it to end! Quality and service always consistent. Definitely worth a visit. Can't see how anyone would be disappointed.

Thank Jonathan W
