Further to a previous thread, I've just returned from PDC and visited La Vela restaurant twice in one week it was that good :D
If you fancy quality Canarian food as opposed to the abundance of mexican, italian, chinese, etc etc then this is the place to go. Thank you Isobel for bringing it to my attention, I'm very grateful :D
They offer tapas or restaurant style meals, the place is nicely decorated, the people are friendly and the food is fab! Last visit, I had canarian potatoes with mojo sauces, canarian chickpea stew and beef stew. There were about 15 potatoes, the chickpea stew also had lean fillet of pork, the beef was melt in the mouth and came with some gorgeous home made chips. I couldn't get anywhere near eating all of this really tasty food and it would have easily fed two people. For this and a half bottle of rose (they opened a full bottle and let me drink half!) cost just under 19 euros. Amazing value. There were a couple of ladies on the same night chomping happily away at a really impressive looking paella.
This is a fairly new restaurant and I very much hope that they do well.

Hi Anne. I read the other thread but am still having trouble working out exactly where it is. Is it located just off the main strip? Perhaps you could give me some pointers as to what it's near. Visiting for the 7th time in February with family who haven't been before and would love to be able to take them out for some really good meals. Thanks very much.

Sounds like our kind of place. Didnt know it was open. Will be back out in april must try it. If its on Doramas nr oriental world i think it's the street that leads up to the Irish Viking and Los hibiscos apts.

Hi there guys, yes it is in Calle Doramas. If you approach the casino so that the sea is directly in front of you then turn right so the sea's on your left, you go past American Indian, then Ruta 66 and Asiatico. When you see Oriental World on the corner of Calle Doramas, turn right keeping Oriental World on your left and La Vela is opposite a closed chinese restaurant, Slow Boat or something. Bon appetit! :D :D

Ah - know exactly where it is now. Walked up and down that hill several times a day for 10 days in November and didn't even notice (stayed at Jable Bermudas apartments - saw the empty chinese though). Will definitely give it a try. Thanks for the recommendation Anne.

Keeping my fingers crossed for them :) Hoping that they'll have much deserved success Isobel. I've found so few canarian style restaurants, and this one is particularly good. My mouth's watering now at the thought of that last meal now :lol: :lol: :lol:
