Great restaurant, service and atmosphere. The food was excellent and La vela is well worth a visit if you are in the area. The Linguine Gamberi was something else.

Nothing was too much trouble, very accommodating and pleasant staff. The meal was excellent, staff were very quick to suggest meals to eat and the service was very quick. We were chatting about old times and didn't at any point feel we were being rushed to leave.

Very tasty selection of food on offer with very good service and welcoming atmosphere. We were a party of six and the meals arrived promptly and everyone looked at each other's meals and wished they had ordered the same, always a good sign!

I had a thoroughly good time whilst eating at this establishment. I had the calzone which would be considered expensive for Burnham restaurants but was very enjoyable. I also had a very reasonably priced beer which contributed to a great evening

We eat here probably about once a month. The food is lovely and we can eat at 5.30 with our son, so that we're not out too late. The staff are all friendly & welcoming. This is, or at least has been, one of our favourite places, however.......the menu gets changed too much and some of our favourites have disappeared,... More
