“Excellent food!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

We found this restaurant on trip advisor, decided to try it out. We were so pleased that we did. The steaks are awesome we also had shrimp and lobster followed by tree leches cake and chocolate cake. Our whole dinner was wonderful. I loved the laid back atmosphere. Th e prices are get affordable. The staff was very friendly and understood English well. If you really love your server tip in cash. If you use a credit card for th e tip a percentage of the tip goes to the owner.

Hi there,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are so happy you enjoyed your dining experience with us and will surely pass along your positive comments to our team.

Your advice about the tips to the waiters is great, however, I only wanted to clarify that the percentage they lose is to the bank which is quite high at 7%! All credit card transactions cost 7% on the total sale, including tips! So definately, tipping your waiter in cash is better for them.

We hope you had a fantastic holiday in Puerto Plata and hope to see you again the next time you visit the area!

Kindest regards,
Joanne (and the team)

“La Parrillada Steak House”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

A decent eatery with BBQ entrees available. Service very good, congenial staff, presentation nice, a little too much salt from the kitchen. Atmosphere a tad gloomy and dated, lots of street noise, driveway to restaurant is a rough dirt roadway. Other competitive eateries in Puerto Plata give La Parrillada a run for their money. We'll give it another try in future.

“Best Dinner out yet!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

After having travelled to POP about 17 times..we arrived in January for a longer stay skipping the A/I ..after much reading on Trip Advisor we decided to try La Parillada tonight..what a fantastic experience start to finish..Having worked in the food service industry for many years I commend Joanne and her partner on their choice of staff!! Excellent attentive service from Yaneri and all the staff.
The food was superb..my husband and I tried the mixed grill with a side of grilled veggies!!, friends had T-bones and a Surf n Turf..all enjoyed their meal. Joanne,the proprietor came to our table to talk with us and ensure everything was ok..we will be back for sure!!

“melt in your mouth steak”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Four of us chose to have our last DR meal off our all inclusive resort and chose La Parrillada after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor.
We went on the evening of Feb 10 and requested a seat on the patio. The weather was warm with no wind and we were close to the massive grill they use to cook their fabulous steaks. Because the restaurant is literally beside the traffic circle, there is endless opportunity for entertainment with passing scooters, plice vehicles and the odd pedestrian.
For appetizers we had shrimp cocktail, mozza sticks and the ribs. Everyone split the dishes and enjoyed them immensely. The shrimp were huge. Each dish was presented nicely too.
For supper, two people had individual steaks and my husband and I split the chateaubriand for 2. The beef was cooked to our request on the grill just steps from where we sat. The meat melted in your mouth and was incredibly flavourful. The sauce with the chateaubriand was tasty and delicious with the meat. For sides there were mashed potatoes with cheese, side potatoes and yucca - all of which were enjoyed immensely.
We tried several desserts including the three milk cake, Afformada (sp ?) which was vanilla ice cream with a shot of both espresso and amaretto - my new fave! and one person ordered plain vanilla ice cream which came in a martini glass with delicious chocolate wafer cookies as a garnish.
And at the end of the meal we were offered free shots of Mumajuana (again sp?) and toasted our wonderful vacation.
Our server was delightful and friendly and the co owner came by and chatted with us frequently and took group photos.
I would recommend this restaurant highly! We had a great time and a great meal with some fabulous friends.
