Been here a few times now and every time has been brilliant. Lovely waitresses and very consistent food, it's always the same guy cooking which explains it. One very minor moan would be the liquor coffees take quite a while, which is the only thing I can pick at!

We were a group of 11 boaters who were moored in Hythe Marina overnight as part of a week's Solent cruise. The restaurant looked welcoming and festive with rows of lights. The staff were friendly. The food choice was good and some of us took advantage of the special price mid week offer of pasta ( including the seafood risotto)... More

We used to be regular visitors to this restaurant, first attending over 20 years ago, but a few years ago we noticed a lowering of standards and service so stopped returning. We decided to try it again, and were delighted that the quality has improved. We understand that the ownership has recently changed, and certainly this is reflected in the... More

I reserved a table for 2 two weeks prior so I was very impressed that they had a table waiting for us. We were shown to our table very quickly and were given the option to move to a different one if we preferred. The meal was very tasty... I recommend their Prawn and Scallop Linguine although they did leave... More

I attended with my family and children to enjoy a lovely mothers day treat. The set menu had plenty of variety and the food was tasty and well cooked. Lots of full tummies and happy faces. Staff were efficient and happy to help, even when one of our party wanted a dessert different to the menu.

Fantastic venue for our breakfast event. Thank you to Kamillo & the staff at La Vista who catered for our large event of 45 people this morning. The food was delicious, staff friendly and very reasonably priced. We will use you again. Many thanks. City of Expertise.
