This was our first time here and it is worthy of the good reviews. The welcome was warm and the staff charming and attentive. One slight complaint was that my lamb was slightly overdone but tasty nonetheless. Look forward to returning.

Nice setting, and waiting staff were friendly. Our table had steaks, octopus and seafood kebab. Mains were ok, but with little or no vegetables. Butter was charged for separately to the bread, with an added cover charge.
On the plus side the desserts were really good, and a good wine was offered when we asked for a suggestion.

We waited for our orders for 1 hour and 15 minutes ... when we requested the staff to check, they realized our order was simply forgotten. We never ever had an apology, nor a commercial gesture... we would have appreciated coffees as a compensation or it would have been easy for them to just waive the bread and butter fees, but nothing.
It was the worst experience of our holidays. So disappointing...

Mixed opinion. My wife's Moroccan lamb was superb but my sole rolled round a prawn was very dry - been kept under hot lamp? House wine was very 'flowery' with a sweet aftertaste not to our liking and a drier one would be better. Made our comments to staff who seemed to take it on board but no offer of a reduction or even waiving the cost of a glass of the wine. We will pay another visit based on my wife's meal on the basis that mine was a one-off mistake.

Excellent service, waiting staff were lovely, food disappointing. Kids ordered burgers and spotted waiter running to nearby shop to pick up baps... which made me wonder how long the actual burgers had been sitting for.... hoping the kids don’t get sick. My steak was inedible... tasted weird... although my husband ate it.

Used this restaurant last year and was not a great experience. Recent reviews were very positive so we gave it another go. Totally different this year with good food and friendly efficient service.

The food was a very good quality but not fantastic hence the good rating. The service began really well, with good explanations of the dishes and a good pace between the first two courses. After this there was a big delay removing plates and then returning to ask about dessert. A good experience overall but the service prevented us ordering more drinks or coffees.

This is our second visit A Vela, our party of 6 couldn't find fault with any aspect. We received a warm welcome, excellent service and food that was a taste sensation. I had the lamb kebab special which I can highly recommend, cooked to perfection with lovely flavours.
Excellent wine and value for money too.

Run by a great team of people; friendly and efficient. Wish we’d found it earlier in the holiday as I’m sure we’d have gone back.
