With a style of food that makes the restaurant unpretentious this spot serves as the perfect place for patrons to pop-in for any occasion whether it be afternoon drinks and a light bite, a sit down three-course meal or a romantic dinner date. The menu consists of sections that include bar snacks, tapas – their true claim to fame – main courses, sharing options, signature salads, sides and desserts each with an array of delectable options that will leave nothing desired. If you’re keen on a cocktail and a small snack to nibble, we suggest pairing a refreshing Aperol Spritz with the truffle potato chips or the toasted ciabatta from the bar menu. The drinks list also encourages experimentation and is as exciting as the food so do play around with different pairings and ask your waiter for suggestions. The tapas selection is impressive, to say the least, and includes veg, seafood and meat opinions that range from cauliflower popcorn and prawn croquetas to pork belly and everything in between.

The restaurant also boasts an impressive interior with ornate pressed ceilings and an eclectic selection of Spanish style tiles, artwork and seating that makes you feel like you’ve been transported to Spain. The inclusion of a private area in the design is a welcome addition for guests looking to meet, eat, and drink in a discrete space. The Durrage Lounge concept, which is a private whisky lounge, adds to the exclusive ambience of this stylish space. It’s all part of the brand tapping into what people want and caters to patrons who love being a part of the main restaurant mix but also like the option of a more private space too.
From the friendly staff to the live music there’s no denying the fact that La Parada is a true celebration of impeccable food, delicious drinks and a vibe of true celebration that you won’t find anywhere else.
