“Good food, great value, the best margaritas; let's keep these guys around!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

La Vina serves one of the only authentic Margaritas around. No mixes here; they are pure and potent. The two young chef, waiter, proprietors do it all and try very hard to please. Having had the ribs, steak, chicken and fish I cast test that their food is fresh and prepared well. A little less sauce on most dishes would probably work. They do a great salad that is huge and entrees are large as well.
The season being what it is this year La Vina deserves our support.

“What a great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

We were looking for something a little different with a little extra and we found it at La Vina. A lovely garden restaurant just off the main road featuring the work of local artists. The sea bass options were incredible, especially owner Memo's grandmother's recipe called the De la abuela. Lots of ambiance, good wine, helpful and friendly service. So glad we found this gem.

“Great little find just off Colon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

We found this place on Sunday night when a lot of the restaurants close or are closed early. It is set in an interior garden. We had wine and salads to start and the salads were full of fresh ingredients with a wonderful vinegar and oil dressing. I had White fish with a Veracruz sauce that was delightful and my boyfriend had Chili Relenos stuffed with cheese and shrimp. Both meals were served with a variety of vegetables including cactas.

“Small Gallery Setting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

My meal was fine but overall the menu and location are fairly average in this town with lots of choice. But they serve good choice of wine in nice glasses - the latter a rarity in town.
