“Atmospheric”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

Having been a frequent diner at this Restaurant for over 7 years I thought it was about time to sing it's praises in Tripadvisor. La Vista has blossomed over these years into the wonderful experience it is today with the décor changing and the menu evolving to meet with the latest trend of Tapas while retaining a lot of the old favourites including the best Platter in Auckland which my Husband and I have shared with a bottle or 2 of wine so many times I couldn't count. The staff have always been and continue to be fantastic in every way. The food always pleases and there is a great selection of wines at very good prices, the new thing being wine on tap which is excellent both in taste and price. I know we will continue to be regular customers and recommend La Vista to all, you won't regret it.

“Lovely Hidden Secret in St. Heliers, Auckland”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

What a nice restaurant for a drink and dinner. We had a few starters and a lovely bottle of wite from their extensive wine list. I have been going to St. Heliers for 12 years and have never noticed this little gem of a place. Great atmosphere, service and food. The sign is quite small so easy to miss. I highly recommend.

“Terrible Service”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

Looking for some lunch in St Heliers today we decided to come to this cafe/Restauraunt. Walking in we were greeted and sent to a table. The atmosphere was amazing but we were left for at least 20 mins without even a motion of acnolgment. Just as we were concidering walking out as we hadn't even been able to even place a coffee order, someone came over and took our order. After a not overly long wait our food arrived. The serving size was a average and was a bit over seasoned.
Overall, I would not come here again.

“Spanish by name”
Reviewed 1 May 2013

La Vista is located on the beachfront at the buzzing end of Tamaki Drive in St Heliers and overlooks the majestic Rangitoto island. It claims to bring a touch of Catalan charm to the area, however, the actual menu also includes some French, Italian and ‘burger’ dishes. In the winter La Vista restaurant is cozy, comfy and friendly. In the summer there is outdoor pavement seating. The tapas selection is great but a good bottle of Spanish wine is quite expensive.

“wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

Ate here with my husband and returned with son and daughter in law a few days later. Excellent food and service. Not cheap but well worth it.
