La Vina

The three of us went out for dinner and had a very good meal, the food was excellent and the service was as good. The staff made us feel very welcome and were attentive. However, it's the food that's most impressive, we'd visit again when in the area to try the dishes we couldn't fit in!

We stumbled across this restaurant during a recent visit to Lymington. Had a lovely selection of tapas which we ate in the lovely garden at the back of the restaurant. Good service and nice atmosphere. Will definitely return next time we are in Lymington.

This is a lovely restaurant and we very much enjoyed the authentic and tasty food. However it was very much let down by the slow and indifferent service that we received. I think we may be tempted back by the food and hope we caught them on a bad day.

Went here for a spontaneous dinner whilst down in the New Forest. A good atmosphere, a good selection of Tapas dishes, all very authentic and an excellent wine selection. Service was, OK and the food was OK when it arrived too, simple dishes but the sauces were a bit bland. I'm sure it wasn't but the meat sauce on my... More

On a trip to the New Forrest, coming straieght from A Coruna in Spain, I decided to revisit this unique small town of Lymington. When I saw La Vina, I could not resist: let's see if these English people can prepare tapas...well, they can ! A choice of 3 traditional tapas (I took albondigas ie meat balls, fish with aioli...

We went looking for Italian and ended up in Spain being served by a Greek. So I suppose it was close. What we did not expect was the quality. We just asked Costa to bring us enough food to feed us. Then the next thing it was on the table with us eating like there was no tomorrow. There certainly... More

Great tapas. We ordered a couple of dishes, then a few more then a few more which seemed to confuse the staff. I think they must be used to British people ordering tons of plates at once. They very kindly let me bring the dogs into the garden via the back door even though they're not technically dog friendly.

The food and staff are excellent. We had a small birthday party here and were treated really well with extra special treatment. The food is really tasty and good sized portions. It is cooked to ordered and it shows.

We booked late for a Saturday evening meal, they had spaces,we should have been warned, the tapas was good but the service appalling , we waited for ages for our meal. Even though we were brought hot side plates, they remained completely empty long after they were cold. The ambiance was good though the staff looked miserable and steadfastly refused... More
