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.

Ordered the tenderloin steak, this was one of the best steaks I've ever had! We got a table in the window which shows an amazing view of the Burj al Arab. As it was a birthday meal they also brought over a complimentary dessert.
All in all a great visit and we also managed to use the entertainer voucher!

Thought we'd give this place another go, as I thought I may have been over-harsh with the review after my last visit. Unfortunately I was completely underwhelmed again.

Friends ordered the T Bone, I ordered the Sirloin on the bone. Everyone found the steaks quite tough to cut and chew, although they were reasonably tasty.

Thumbs up for the friendly service and entertainment on offer.

If you like big steaks and aren't too bothered about the quality of the meat, then you would probably enjoy it here. Other than that, there are many better places in Dubai to eat Argentinian steaks

We visited here for my fathers birthday and it was absolutely gorgeous. A few starters and 3 steaks which were all cooked to perfection! Amazing view outside and the dancers are a great surprise.
I'd definitely go back here!

This is a lovely setting with great views over Dubai. The food was fantastic and served to the table. The music however was very loud and the dancers were not for me, though others seemed to enjoy the entertainment.

Visited with my family (27 May) and had booked well in advance and requested a window table overlooking the Burj Al Arab and Persian Gulf as it was a special meal to celebrate my wife's birthday. So glad that my request was fulfilled as the view from our table was just stunning. We arrived at 18.30 just as the sun was starting to set so we got to see the Burj transform and light up as the sun gradually set in the distance. Just stunning. So book in advance and get a table by the window and make sure you are there before sunset, you won't be disappointed.

The same superlative can be used of the food. We used our Jumeirah half-board vouchers with a 180 AED supplement per person so nt necessarily the cheapest evening out but worth it as an occasional extravagance I guess. I had the rack of lamb chops with a side of thick-cut chips. The lamb was cooked to perfection. Delicious! Children are also catered for so don't worry about what they will eat. The portion size was also quite generous so by the time we got round to having desert we had to leave pretty much half of ours.

As for the service, that too was brilliant. The waiting staff were friendly, informative and very attentive. Presentation of the food was also good. I ordered a JD and Coke at one point and I was presented with the JD in the glass and the Coke in a separate small jug - a very nice touch I thought.

Finally a word on the entertainment. This started around 19.30 initially with a some live music/singing, nothing tacky, which just enhanced the atmosphere just that much more. During the course of the night there were also several dance performances of varying styles performed by a very energetic couple that even managed to keep the attention of my easily distracted young son.

Definitely will be visiting La Parilla the next time I'm in town - even if I don't get a coveted window table.
