“Surprise great meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

Didnt want to eat at the
hotel Almirante restaurant where we were staying because hotel was a little pricy and really didn't want a three course meal . So we got in car to search for a pizza place etc. after a drive towards El Campello came across a very quiet looking restaurant advertising pizzas within their menu. We crept in not sure but soon were relieved by the greeting and the pleasant way we were shown to our seat. The decor was very naval with boaty stuff everywhere. We ordered a couple of different pizzas and bottle of house white. When they arrived they were huge and I have to say the best we've ever had. ( and we toured Tuscany and Umbria last )September.will certainly go back again.very pleasant evening.

“Good dining guaranteed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

I have dined in La Vela on a number of occasions, but recently had a birthday celebration there and must say that with the views of the sea, the attentive and friendly staff it all helped to make the occasion even more special.
What I love about La Vela is that there is something for everyone. The menu is (as many have said before me) very varied, but not overwhelming. My father in law is a real, traditional meat and veg person, so for him there was an excellent choice of stews and meats, my mother in law and I had an array of fish and seafood dishes to choose from, whilst my husband and kids ordered steaks and pizzas, which all arrived on time, with none of that " just start, don't let it get cold" whilst you wait for the other dishes to arrive. Make sure you put La Vela on your must visit restaurant list!

“What a pleasant find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2011

Wow. I stumbled across this little restaurant and initially thought I'd skip it as I saw "pizzeria" on a sign outside the restaurant which put me off somewhat.

A couple of nights later I took my girlfriend there for dinner. What a pleasant surprise! We shared the house salad, and both had the salmon for our main. I'm gluten-intolerant and it was quite refreshing to see from the waiter's response that they knew all about gluten - in fact their pizzas and pastas are all available gluten-free!

The salad was made from the freshest ingredients - and my girlfriend and I were of the same opinion that the salmon was the best had ever had! Cooked to perfection.

I took my parents there a few nights later and we were all equally impressed. By the way you have to try their sorbet - out of this world!

Great service, great value - and a relaxing, nautical atmosphere!

“A welcome touch of France nearby Alicante”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2009

We went to La Vela together with a couple of friends living in the region and considering it worth a short excursion.

The maritime decor is a matter of taste, we rather liked it. The menu is a slightly eclectic mix of Spanish, Pizza and French cuisine. We went mainly 'French' and enjoyed both the change from the average local restaurant and the quality of the cooking on its own, which was rather good. While the food was better than average, the prices kept in the normal range.

After a pleasant dinner we agreed with our friends that "La Vela" can be worth a detour.
