La Parada Constantia Nek

This old barn has been reinvented a few times over the years, but I think the latest reinvention by the Harbour House Group of Restaurant could be a goodie and here for a while.

The Old barn is actually split into two restaurants namely Harbour House, for a more formal seafood dining experience and the of course La Parada, a more vibey tapas styled informal setting.

Our waitress was very knowledgeable and quite attentive and offered advice on which dishes would be best to photograph as of course everything tasted amazing.

Sadly I am allergic to shellfish and was unable to try the Gambas or Prawns as they are more commonly known, my family were licking their fingers and smacking their lips and the two Prawns and as per father and daughter combo, it’s two of the best Prawn Dishes they have had.

The tapas filled us up and we sadly couldn’t even get to the mains or dessert, but we heading back for sure, to get to the rest of the menu.

The food came out quickly and service was excellent. Found the Restaurant staff to be very friendly and helpful, though some of the patrons didn’t seem as welcoming. But this too shall change.
