Lovely food. Lovely welcome. They really look after you well here. My only minor quibble would be that the tables are quite close together and the door opens directly onto the sea front so it can be windy in poor weather.

Hi Adriano, Thank you for your question. At La Bella Vista we have wheelchair access to the restaurant via a ramp, but sadly our toilets are located down a flight of stairs. We hope this is helpful for you.
