We all had lunch menu of 3 choices for 9.95 per person. Thought food was great especially fried white fish and pot brav. Service was... read more

I went with my family. The atmosphere was pleasant and service was OK. The tapas dishes were varied and tasty. It was reasonably priced £117 for 5 of us with drinks (no wine) and we all had churros after for desert. Sadly they were a bit too over cooked and were served with chocolate sauce, instead of sugar, which I... More

We arrived at 9.30pm (which is not a particularly busy time for restaurants) and even then they took ages to get our order. We order a jug of sangria, which is too expensive for what you get (3 glasses basically) and took ages to be served as well. The garlic bread we ordered never arrived but of course they remembered...

We brought our friends here on our reccommendation after visiting previously a few weeks ago, so perhaps it was our mistake to give this place a second chance as we received the same poor service only this time, with an attitude from our 'lovely' waitress! When we arrived we were seated with menus but no wine/drinks list. After 15 minutes... More

Four of us went for a meal, we were attracted by adverts claiming special deals but were disappointed that they weren't available. The tapas were reasonable but not brilliant. We were surprised to find a backbone in the monkfish and we would definitely recommend avoiding the tough asparagus! Pricewise - we ended up paying £24 per person which we felt... More

Found this Tapas restaurant on our latest visit to the New Forest area. We booked a table for one of the evenings. Service was very good from the friendly, attentive and welcoming staff. The prices where about the same as we pay in our local Tapas in south London. All of the dishes we order where very tasty, especially to... More

La Vina has a good atmosphere and a lovely selection of wines. (Most bottles priced at £20). We ordered 4-5 tapas each and this was just enough for 2 of us. Most dishes priced at £5-£8. Tiger prawns weren't great due to the intestine tract being very black..!!! And the other dishes were average. The pork cheek was delicious but... More

The restaurant was friendly and relaxing with excellent service. We had the breads with olive oil and balsamic vinegar to start with, followed by six excellent tapas. What we liked was the ability to order old tapas favourites such as albondigas along with things that you wouldn't normally see on most tapas menus, such as leg of duck in an... More

We had 9 tapas including 2 bravas potatoes plus followed by piela for two. Drinks all round including two large glasses of wine. Somehow squeezed in a cheesecake desert in for all and couldn't eat...
