    The food was well prepared, and the servings were large for the price. Admittedly, prices are a bit higher but I expect to pay a bit more to sit next to the beach. We got tuna tartar, beef tenderloin, and lamb chops. All were very good, particularly the lamb chops. They do not offer a menú (referring to the Spanish usage of the word, not meaning a printed list of items) right now due to limited people able to be served due to COVID restrictions. Service was typical of Spanish restaurants: it started off strong but we got quiet neglected as time went on.

    Vela Beach is undoubtedly one of the top restaurants around Torreveija. Excellent food and good dining.

    We booked Vela Beach due to the high rating on Trip Advisor and as it was our 30th wedding anniversary we were hoping for a special meal. At the last minute I realised There are actually 2 restaurants with the same name and this one is quite far up the coast from central Torrevieja, but the land train plus 15 minutes walk along the coast road came to our rescue. When we arrived at La Mata beach we found the restaurant right on the sea front overlooking the beach. The trip was well worthwhile as the food was exceptional and our waiter went out of his way to ensure we had a fabulous night. The paella with chicken and veg was delicious but do be sure to order all 3 courses as you won’t be disappointed!

    The service was good. The food was well cooked but the sauce on my fish was to salty for my taste. Overall experience was very good.

    Such a wonderful setting looking out over the sea, the waiters could do with being more attentive and friendly, we waited for 15 minutes for a drink but the rest was brilliant. Do object to a 10% service charge though, the first time we left a big tip not realising there was a service charge, I do think it should be up to the individual whether you choose to reward good/bad service

About the restaurant

En el año 2007, el restaurante Vela Beach – Playa de La Mata abrió sus puertas. Se ubica en la alicantina localidad de Torrevieja y entiende la cocina mediterránea a través de los mejores productos frescos y de mercado.

Pescado y marisco fresco y la variedad de excelsos arroces conforman la columna vertebral de su propuesta culinaria. Comparte el Tartar de atún rojo, el Calamar relleno en salsa marinera; degusta el Arroz de la casa con bogavante, gamba roja, cigala, almejas y mero o las Angulas de trigo con almejas y gambas a la marinera. La Pizza Vela beach, la Parrillada variada de pescado, una Gamba roja a la plancha y el Solomillo de ternera a la sal relleno de foie de oca y trufa te apasionarán.

Como colofón, no dudes en dejar un hueco a los postres caseros del restaurante Veal Beach – Playa de La Mata. El Tiramisú del chef con helado de stracciatella es uno de sus mejores ejemplos. Desayunos, cócteles y terraza frente al mar completan la grandeza de su oferta. ¡Repetirás!
