We went to La vela whilst on holiday at Haven Burnham on sea. I'm so glad we did. The service, food and wine was wonderful. I don't understand the bad reviews on Yell. Well worth the money.

Family of seven including two children under five. Had a great evening at la vela. Food was wonderful and excellent value for money. Although the waitress made a couple of ordering mistakes she was brilliant with the children. We will definitely return here whenever we holiday in the area.

Pizzas offer excellent value for under £10 but to appreciate the full extent of the cooking on offer, try the lamb special of the restaurant for £17. If... More

Midweek visit, early evening. Service was very good, attentive but not obtrusive. We visited with 2 children aged 5 & 7. Food was absolutely spot on, excellent value and a good evening was had by all. Highly recommended for holidaymakers like us.

Hi, my husband & I have enjoyed a fantastic evening meal at La Vela, Burnham on Sea. Great location in BoS, car parking less than 100yrds away & free after 18.30pm. Looks very classy with the dark windows & the interior matched the exterior!! Minimal design, lots of room to sit - not crammed in. Lovely warm greeting upon arrival,... More
