Southern suburb gourmands danced a jig of joy when the Harbour House Group (which owns Tiger’s Milk, Live Bait, Harbour House and Charango) took over the historic restaurant at Constantia Nek and opened La Parada in September 2016!
Something old, something new
Before it was transformed into La Parada, the building was home to the iconic Constantia Nek Restaurant, which was the oldest restaurant in Cape Town. During the renovations, the architects were very careful to ensure that the refurb did not detract from the beauty and timelessness of this grand old dame.
The century-old building’s exterior was retained, while the interior was lightened and modernised, and the gardens neatened, to provide even better views of the surrounding vineyards, sea and mountains.
La Parada’s menu is bursting with a delicious variety of tapas and sharing plates, which have been carefully conceived by chef Roche Rossouw. Do not – under any circumstances – leave without trying the Serrano Ham Croquetas, served with whole-grain mustard aioli. The famous Rib Eye Steak and Pork Belly are also crowd-pleasers!
Sunday funday at the nek
