I went to La Parilla with friends to celebrate a birthday. I chose the set menu which was £13.95 for two courses. I had soup to start, leek and potato which was adequate, and as I am a vegetarian, chose the beet root and goat's cheese risotto. When the risotto arrived, it looked like something a dog had vomited up! It was bright pink, and resembled playdoh, all I could taste was cheese, and I love cheese, but this was grim.
There was no structure to the dish, not a grain of rice in sight. I picked around the edges, but with the best will in the world, it was undedible.
I sent the meal back, and told the waiter I could not eat it. I was asked if I wanted anything else, but it was quite late, and as there was a limited vegetarian choice, I declined.
I asked what I should do with regard to payment, as I'd eaten the soup, and was told I would be charged £5.00, which I paid.
Another friend had the hake, which was also sent back as un edible. Everyone else's meal was ok.
My advice to anyone going to La Parilla is not to expect a great meal. At best adequate, at worst expensive slop.
