“Amazing food & great service”
Reviewed 9 June 2012

We've eaten at La Vina twice in the past month and both times it's been very very good.

The service is very efficient and friendly and the tapas is so tasty! Having had mediocre tapas in the past I wasn't that keen when my other half suggested trying La Vina.

Boy was I proved wrong! The flavours in their food are amazing! The meatballs are out of this world! In fact all of it is just lovely... Writing this review is making me want to book a table!

10/10 on all counts!

“Fantastic food, great service and a relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

We had a great meal here. There was one person in our party who had not eaten Tapas before, the staff were brilliant they explained the menu and experience and gave great suggestions for a good cross section.
Those of who had Tapas before thought the food was really good... an authentic flavour!
We would definitely recommend and will be back again very soon!
Thank you to all at La Vina for such a great evening.

“Great find!!”
Reviewed 2 June 2012 via mobile

Fantastic authentic Spanish menu, with some dishes exceeding our expectations based on eating in Spain. More expensive than a tapas bar equivalent in Spain, but still great value compared with normal uk prices. Lots of attentive and friendly staff - highly recommended!!

“Love it!”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

Had the three tapas with bread and dips lunchtime offer for £8.95. Everything was very enjoyable and tasty. The octopus was especially good, just soft and sweet, not at all rubbery. King prawns very good and bread & dips nice way to start the meal. Could really see a good evening could be had drinking wine and eating tapas. Wish I'd tried the serrano ham which looked stunning. Will definitely be going back for more. Excellent value and very good food. Give it a try!!!

“No complaints!”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

My partner and I ate here last Saturday evening. We just got in without a reservation as it was pretty full with a lot of groups and a big birthday party. Nonetheless, the service was quick and efficient, the food was delicious and well presented and the atmosphere lively and buzzy. Would thoroughly recommend it.
