Seafood done right

Whole fresh sea bass served with potatoes, olives and tomato. Perfect straightforward seafood. I wish this family restaurant was around the corner from home.

Warm evening and did not have a reservation. Were welcomed by Jr staff who who were friendly. Sr staff ignored us completly and focussed on the italian guests. The appetizers were tasty (sardines, fish salad) and main course delicious. What was mega annoying is that the kitchen was disorganized, they not once delivered all dishes at the same time. Had...

We come here several times a year, but the atmosphere in the summer months in this seaside town is just something else. Young, old, families,young people, grannies and grand dads all out quietly enjoying themselves. The seafood at La Vela is just fantastic. Always best to book a table at this popular restaurant, and ask for one outside on the... More

We go here often and we're never disappointed. The food is good and the portions are generous, the service is good, the setting is good. Good food and good service - what else do you need if you're eating out? Oh and the wine's ok too!

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
