Nice ambience, always busy, which is a good clue for what to expect ! We were a large group and everyone really enjoyed their whole meal. Would definitely recommend.

Both the pizza and sweet selection were great. The service from the staff could not be faulted. Would recommend.

The restaurant has a lovely relaxed feel, not like a large chain restaurant. Service is excellent and the food, which we were recommended, was really really good- looked and tasted great. Excellent value for money too. Nice food, nice setting, overall there is nothing I would have liked different.

This restaurant is ok. The food is ok, service is ok and the price is a little high for what it is. Would go back again, although saying that there isn't much choice in Burnham on Sea!

sorry this review is a little late coming! We visited back in November. The restaurant was fairly full. The food was good with no major issues. The atmosphere was a little odd in a way. Much as I love Love over Gold by Dire Straits and one of my daughters favourites, Queen, the music didn't quite fit with the atmosphere... More

Excellent variety on menu. Fast and friendly service with attention to detail. Would recommend Calamari to start followed by Rump of Lamb, cooked to perfection and delicious. Will definitely be making a return visit.

Definitely my favourite restaurant in Burnham-on-Sea! Lovely atmosphere, delicious food and always made very welcome by all staff. Would surely recommend La Vela to all locals or anyone visiting the area
