Description: A true taste of Latin passion. Samba beats, stunning views and authentic Latin American cuisine gives La Parrilla a particularly warm and welcoming atmosphere. A meat lovers paradise, the restaurant offers an alternative dining destination for quality food set against a 25th floor vantage point. With a name that literally means 'The Grill', La Parrilla exudes sizzling meats and Latin American style from the every moment you arrive. With cooked to perfection signature steaks and spectacular views across the Arabian Gulf and the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, La Parrilla offers a world class venue that simultaneously combines grace and traditional flavors in a Dubai elegant setting. Although La Parrilla is rapidly becoming recognised as the place to visit for an impeccable steak selection, the restaurant also offers a surprising choice of seafood and vegetarian dishes for those who don't fancy the highly recommended Wagyu Beef main. Suitable for a lavish evening out or a great romantic venue to impress that special someone, La Parrilla offers a dining opportunity to taste the regions flavors and experience a refreshing blend of culinary excellence alongside luxurious surroundings. **Please make a reservation before arrival.

“Good meat, great dancers!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We went here based on TA recommendationd and weren't left disappointed.

The food was good with my medium-rare Lomo cooked to perfection, very juicy and extremely tasty. The service was also very good although 1 slight comment would be to leave more time between each course. Whilst we had a latish 9pm sitting we could have done with more time to sit and appreciate the good food that was being served.

If you do go you have 2 options. You can sit by the window and get a greta view of Al Burj/ Dubai or sit nearer the middle where you'll get entertained by the most fantastic and flexible tango dancers with great South American/ Spanish-type music making a great accompaniant for the evening.

The wine was also good but like the rest of Dubai pricey, but hey you need a decent red to help appreciate the good red meat.

Thoroughly recommended and worth a visit and on your way out drop down a floor and have a couple of cocktails on the 24th floor at the Uptown Bar.

“Great service, very poor steak!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

I had read the rave reviews prior to visiting La Parrilla and I had high expectations. Firstly we were told that all the window seats had been booked and were sat in the middle of the room, ordinarily this wouldn't bother me but in the 2 hours we were sat in the restaurant nobody was seated at the 'reserved' tables.

The service was impeccable and the waiters were highly attentive, that I cannot fault.

However, the steak was very poor, for a up market, high priced steak restaurant I expected so much more. In addition at 13AED for a Pepsi I really dont expect the waiter to come out with a can and then pour it into a jug, just very down market.

“La Parrilla Fairy Tale”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Once upon a time in the land of Dubai...

There was a night of great steak, attentive and must say good looking staff, washed down with a great red wine, music, latino dancing, finished off with a magical amazon desert of trees and foggy churros.

You have to try it! Oh and looking forward to trying there new brunch.

And everyone went home happily ever after.
