"I ate at my parents'." ?

Then it could be your parents' apartment, party, gathering, mobile restaurant etc. The sentence specifically mentions "house".

I've eaten at my parents' house.

Is it wrong?

I would say "I have eaten" to describe something that happened a long time ago. If I say "I ate at my parents' house," I mean today.
