“Great find! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

Went to La Vina for an evening meal with a group of work colleagues as we regularly do in Lymington. We were probably your typical annoying large group of ladies, couple of people turning up late, taking a little while to decide what we were ordering, lots of drinks orders etc! However, the restaurant staff were brilliant and very patient with us! Having worked in the industry myself I appreciate how awkward it can be serving groups! The restaurant wasn't too busy which helped as well but our server was great. Decor really nice too.

We ordered lots of little plates between us and had a couple of paella portions to split. The food was fantastic, very flavourful, so much to choose from and all hot and well cooked. I particularly liked the squid in chilli and garlic, goats cheese croquettes and the chicken in mushroom sauce. All was lovely, no complaints at all, other than I wished I hadn't have been so full so I could try more!!

Hope to come back to take advantage of the lunchtime offers and will definitely recommend this little gem to others. Beats the usual prezzo/zizzi or going to the pub!

Had a number of tapas dishes and found the food to be tasty and generously portioned - service was attentive and the décor nice. Would go back if we were in the area

“Scrummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Delicious food in a lovely informal atmosphere. Attentive service, the staff were knowledgeable about the menu and the choice of wine was excellent. The tortilla was so good we ordered more, and we also loved the monkfish with chorizo. We will definitely eat here again next time we're in Lymington.

“Great Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

We ate here on the two nights that we stayed in Lymington last week and could not fault the food or the service. Across the two visits we tried a range of dishes and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. Particularly the squid with chorizo and pork cheeks. Delicious would do definitely go again and would certainly recommend it!
