This restaurant, on the Hout Bay Road is in a very popular location about five miles out of Hout Bay on Bay Road junction with Rhodes Drive.

Great to have this beautiful building renovated and back in use as a main stream restaurant. Situated at the top of Constantia Nek, it has ample parking space with very friendly car parking attendants.

Having read all the previous negative reviews we were a little concerned about the booking. How wrong could we be......the service was friendly and efficient the setting delightful and the food well prepared and of excellent quality. Don't be put off.

We had lunch here during the holidays. After repeated requests for menus, water, glasses and to place our order, we waited for an hour for the food to arrive. When it did, it was very tasty. However, we didn't think it was worth the wait. If you go, set aside plenty of time.

I was excited to see the refurbished old Constantia Nek Restaurant and found my first experience less than ideal. An idyllic setting with exquisite views of the vineyards, but service not quite up to the high season hoards, and menu at La Parada somewhat limited, harrowed staff and rigid chefs too busy to consider slight deviations.

Recently revamped we popped in for a drink, average pricing and food going past looked good, some of the old character has been retained which is great, a fair selection of draught too for beer lovers

We took my aged mother-in-law to lunch at this famed fish restaurant and enjoyed the attentive and knowledgeable staff. The lack of soft furnishings means that, when full, the restaurant is noisy.
