La Vista - Restaurante Especial
La Vista is located on the beach front in Alcaidesa and is the inspiration of Michelin - Starred Chef Manfred Schwarz.
The setting is lovely as you can see all the way to Gibraltar and the boats docked in La Linea.
The Restaurant is in the care of Manfred's son Oliver, who really does look after you.
La Vista is one of those places I felt would be ideal for Special Occasions.
Birthdays and Anniversaries treat yourself to this amazingly prepared food.
There are two Menus and I chose Menu 1.
First came the Lobster and it was lovely, not only did it taste superb but looked wonderful.
Next course was the Monkfish with red pepper chutney and a ginger saffron sauce.
Roast Lobster on a bed of coconut rice with chili and lemon sauce.
Well then came the Fillet Steak and I really do not know how to describe this so I shall say just heavenly.
Fillet Steak on a truffle gnocchi with roasted mushrooms and Pata Negra gravy.
Menu 2 has the Spicy Duck Breast.
Spicy Duck breast on a bed of mango tagliatelle and roast green asparagus with a sesame dressing.
By now I was really full and had to pass on the selection of cheese but did, due to my sweet tooth have the dessert.
It was crème brulee served with a strawberry salad, did my mouth water, could I have eaten two, yes!!!
When I had Coffee it was getting towards the end of the evening but eating such elegant food was not to be rushed.
The Menu was 65 euros for 5 courses but you could miss a couple of courses and that would work out at 50 euros.
This was a lovely meal and I would really recommend it, go on spoil yourself.
I hope you enjoy fish because two of the five courses are fish.
I had a really enjoyable evening with great food and friendly service and
I know this is a womanly thing to say but the cutlery was beautiful.
