We went to this restaurant because of the personal connection we have with Spain and Latin-America. Therefore we were disappointed the chef didn't quite manage to replicate the dishes as you would find them locally. (Tortilla isn't the same as just an omelette with some potatoes and onions) At least two of the tapas we wanted to order from the menu, were unavailable. On top of that, as we we're only with the two of us we couldn't have the Tapeo and apparently we didn't merit the chef's attention. Unlike the people around us we didn't get an explanation with dishes we ordered. All in all a disappointing evening.

Most of the tapas we wanted were apparently out of season, I didn't know meatballs had a season! Everything tasted and looked like it had come from Iceland's freezer section and just been shoved in the oven. We had an over powering smell of the toilets from our table and the only saving grace was the sangria. I was up at 3am with stomach pains and both me and my friend felt queasy afterwards. The chef should be ashamed of himself. Avoid at all costs!

Loved the fact that both traditional & inventive foods were on offer. We opted for a little of both & weren't disappointed. Lovely setting & friendly service.

Famished, we arrived at La Buena Vista late one night hoping for some fresh sea fare. We were not disappointed! The chef whipped up a delicious meal with flair, and our server kindly recommended a complimentary wine. We felt well-cared for, and thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing dinner.
