We picked La Vida for a birthday meal out on Easter Sunday based on the reviews and it did not disappoint. We were the only people in the restaurant and we were worried that we would feel rushed or that the staff would hover but they didn't. The service was good and the food was excellent. You get generous portions,... More

We stumbled across this place whilst looking for an early meal prior to the theatre. Although very busy (a good sign at 5:30pm!) a table was found for us. The waiter (though he may also have been the owner) was doing it all himself from serving, answering the phone, pouring drinks, whilst also being extremely pleasant and accommodating. The food...

Well what can I say, my husband and i went there on the 11th of February, we were really pushed for time, we only had an hour and a half to order and eat as we were going to the Cinema. We ordered quite quickly letting the waiter know that we didn't have much time, we had a bottle of... More

Had the King Prawns and Fillet. Perfectly cooked. The diane sauce was one of the best I have ever had! Generous portions and importantly - great value for money. Looking forward to another trip here soon!

We booked this because our first choice restaurant was fully booked and we are so pleased that it was. What a find! Excellent choices and friendly service, although one meal did arrive a few minutes after everyone else's. There was a really good range of food on the menu and we had 7 starters, 7 mains, 3 desserts and drinks... More
