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.

“Amazing atmosphere, food, views, music and dance!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

I took my wife here on a recent trip to Dubai. There are loads of restaurants in Dubai so we were hoping it was a good choice. It was a great choice! I can't possibly see how any other restaurant in Dubai or anywhere for that that matter can top this place.

The food was amazing with free tasters in between courses. The live music and dancers were just perfect and the staff were efficient and friendly. It was totally romantic and the views were great too.

We're the kind of people that like to try new places, but if we had one more night in Dubai, we would be back here without a doubt.

The place does not live up to what they offer. The food was really average and service was poor. For the amount of money you could go to another place.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Last month (March 2013) I was staying at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and we decided to eat at the Argentinean restaurant located on the 25th floor of the hotel La Parrilla. The service was great and the food superb. We had booked the table for 9pm. Perfect time for us.

My friend had chosen the wagyu fillet beef. Expensive but he was not disappointed. The flavour was superb. I had the australian fillet which also was superb.

The service was top class and the sommelier helped us choose glasses of wine to match the starter and the beef courses. We were allowed to enjoy our food, after dinner coffees and drinks at our pace, superb! Having ate in a few places in Dubai during the week we would put this one near the top of the list. Of course we were staying on the 18th floor so it was an easy trip home.

“Sceptical Return”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Having visited this restaurant approx. 3 years ago & after having what can only be described as an awful experience in terms of food quality and service we were indeed quite sceptical on this special occasion (my wife's birthday) but felt we had to give it a second chance after it's recent awards for best Latin American Restaurant.
I can now say categorically we were not to be disappointed!
From the greeting on entering the restaurant to the farewell on leaving, we felt as though we were indeed special guests!
The setting and layout is quite nice with a warm ambiance. The floor show with musicians was an entertaining addition that kept the mood high. This made a refreshing change to the usual "chat above the piped music" norm that is fine dining.
We were a group of 5 and after being escorted to our table by a happy smiling hostess, we were introduced to our waiter for the evening, Octavian. He was near faultless. He was friendly without being intrusive but was very professional and more importantly informative, (he knew his onions)!
He helped us with our choices for a "tapas" of shared starters and our excellent steaks. There was hardly a morsel left on our plates when we had finished. Those familiar with the Argentinian way of cooking/serving steak will know how thick they are; I asked for my steak to be cooked medium and my knife cut through it like butter!
The choice of wine was not over the top so it didn't take long for us to agree which we would like.
We all agreed it was a very good choice of venue and were impressed with everything including the attentiveness.
For anyone wanting a complete night out in this area we can recommend starting at Uptown bar which is on the 24th floor of JBH, La Parilla is on the 25th floor. If you want to extend your night's enjoyment after your meal then we can certainly recommend 360 bar (house/lounge music); Though a word to the wise; take your receipt along as you may be refused entry without it; we were asked twice for ours!
All in all a very enjoyable night from start to finish.
