Nestled at the top of Constantia Nek you will find La Parada. You know it’s Constantia immediately if you come in from the Hout Bay side because of all the expensive motoring toys to be found at the front door.

The perfect way to arrive


This is obviously the place where the locals hang out, listen to loud music, drink tequilas and eat some great tapas -really good.

Or try this if you want to hold on tight

If you want to avoid the loud music, get there for early lunch or go in the midweek if you can. Ask the management when the music is lowest. Believe me it is worth it.

Fabulous salads

The food’s great, not very expensive, tasty and delicious.

Calamari done to perfection


Order from the extensive tapas list, calamari three ways, heavenly patatas bravas, crunchy potstickers, superb pork belly, crisp colourful salads and prawns.

Succulent prawns

Finish off with traditional churros. Can’t think of a better way to pass the time with some nice company.
