Bar and restaurant are superb for food and sightseen. Service it is quite slow but in the nature of the slow life style of the place. So if you are on holiday take your time and sit back.

We come to Italy every year and we frequent Vela! Wonderful service, great food, and fantastic view! We are for Hawaii and very critical of seafood because we have such an abundance at home. The food at Vela is fresh and amazing! They are also kid friendly as we bring both our kids and have them going in and out... More

Been here year after year in early June. Superb seafood lunch and beach combination - can't beat their orecchiette anywhere else.

I dream of this place when I'm enduring another Norfolk winter. It's just perfect for a beach lunch in high summer. Quite a relaxed and (I like to think) glam crowd. All good on the menu, highlights being the fish of the day. House wine and a snooze under the umbrelloni on the beach. Aaaah I'm back on holiday...!

Stumbled upon this place many years ago and have come back every year since for the spaghetti vongole and calamari friti. Always a great meal. Book ahead to get a seat outside. Closed December - end of February. 0734.676482

This beach is perfectly kept but a man that looks something like Phil Collins!! Seriously though, the beach is lovely and the restaurant attached is superb. Excellent orechiette alle vongole. There is something magical about swimming in the morning and strolling up to eat an amazing lunch. Unforgettable!

Had a great lunch here today in late September sunshine and 28c looking out at an empty beach with most of the chalets closed for the season - we were so glad that the Vela stays open until November. We had the antipasti freddo and salmon carpaccio to start, both delicious with the antipasti plate a real joy - the... More
