This little bar offers a great selection of tapas and the prices for drinks with or without tapas are very reasonable.

Right on the seafront, perfect views. A warm welcome with menus in many different languages. Ordered a pizza which was very tasty, La Vela has a vast array of lovely dishes. So many to choose from, spoilt for choice.

We had a lunchtime fish platter for two with a glass of white wine for one and a large beer for one. The total price was €21. The food cost €16. The seafood selection was wonderful, beautifully cooked, nicely presented and the flavours were to die for. We most definitely will go back.

Tried the set tapas menu. Wonderful selection and we could hardly finish it. Friendly staff. Came to less than 20 euros for both of us. Was within walking distance of Evanida Park, even for hubby who can't walk far.

Thank gladysScotland
