“Super tasty and very friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Loved the food - pork stuffed with beef in a wine and guava sauce was divine, seafood mofongo was to die for. Cocktails weren't anything special however.

“Good Restaurant - near Gran Melia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by many of the locals, and the food was good. We ate dinners and lunch the next day. Must have the empanadas - and loved their salad!

“Don't let the exterior fool you”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Really, it's okay to stop at the kioskos in Luquillo. The food at El Parilla was incredible. Ask for outside seating for a more enjoyable dining experience.

“Felt Like Family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

The waitress who helped us made us feel like family! My husband and I sat in their outdoor seating. The weather was very nice. The food was delicious and very fast. The waitress was kind enough to help guide us in what to order as we are new to Puerto Rican cuisine. Prices are extremely reasonable. The sangria was to die for as was the monfongo! The only "con" for me was the restaurant was a real challenge to find. It was next to Aquatika Resort (that is a helpful tip, believe me). They were open until 7pm which is late for the area (most everything closes at 5pm). It was a pleasure to experience some real, fresh, Puerto Rican cuisine! Thank you!!!
