la parada – tapas bar in kalk bay

very nice, very nice. We really enjoy the interiors of this new venue. Lovely that the space is open to the pavement…,

rustic coloring, great artwork, inclusive the large hams hanging from the ceiling :-) , generally not mad about TVs in venues but it is not overpowering here and will do a great job at times.

The staff is knowledgeable and friendly without being “in your face”. The menu is mouth watering, my favourites are the octopus salad, house tapas and prawn croquettes. The paella is only available in the evenings from 19:00 onwards and to be honest was a little disappointing, more of a risotto than a true paella. I am confident they will improve on it!

Overall, full points and they will see a lot of us – perfect for a quick bite, drink and chat after hours.
