Went to La Vela one evening just to have a nice meal and unwind from a stressful week. We were blown away by the food and service and ended up feeling as if we had planned a luxury night out!

I rarely eat three courses at a restaurant but I made an exception here. We started with garlic bread and calamari - both were full of flavour.

Hubbie and I had the rib eye steak medium and the boys had margarita pizzas. Steak was lovely and tender, well presented with chips and a tasty side salad. Also had the peppercorn sauce. One of the best steaks I have ever had. Plates were cleared. Excellent friendly staff too!
