Puerto Rico: Wedding Dinner - La Parrilla
You've just gotten married on the beach in Puerto Rico, and now you need a GREAT place for dinner for your group (2 - 30 people). On the East side of PR, the place I highly recommend is LA PARRILLA RESTAURANT in the Luquillo Kioskos (the Kioskos themselves are not to be missed: 60 bars, restaurants, and an art/jewelry studio all side-by-side on the beach 50 feet from the ocean in Luquillo, see my blog-specific on the Kioskos coming soon).
They have been doing this for over 20 years - started as a small burger stand - and have now grown to 4 kioskos wide and is one of the most popular restaurants on the island. With their recent renovation they now offer 2 levels of patio dining (2nd level will be done in by December) with gorgeous ocean views, as well as 2 indoor air-conditioned spaces that can all accommodate small to large groups.
The first thing you see upon entering La Parrilla are the lobster tanks, filled with large Caribbean lobsters, and beside them whole snapper on ice. The lobster are very popular and you can have them grilled, steamed or broiled with seafood stuffing, all are awesome! The snapper is typically deep-fried whole, another island specialty. The rest of the menu consists of steaks and seafood Puerto Rican style (the whole menu here: http://www.laparrillapr.com/menu.html).
La Parrilla is a great restaurant perfect for special occasions, and an ideal spot for your wedding dinner! Contact info:
