2nd year we have been to this restaurant. all round lovely restaurant in a lovely location. Had the 35e set menu and we struggled to eat everything.
Calamari was a little dry but that could just be our taste.

We had the best steak we have ever tasted here. The sides and sauces were also amazing. Could not believe the price either - very reasonable for such a high end restaurant. Will definitely return and would definitely recommend.

The location of the outside bar at the Restaurant las Columnas on the waters edge is splendid but sadly the same CANNOT be said for the service. On 2 occasions within the past month,we tried to get a drink. I waved at two waiters who seemed to acknowledge me but never approached. On the first occasion we gave up and left along with another customer who was sitting close by. On Saturday night, along with our son and his lovely girlfriend ,we decided to relax before going to the Subset for dinner at 9 pm. We arrived at 8.15pm and although there was evidence of waiters going back and forth to the restaurant, none of them showed any interest in my party or the party beside us. I managed at one stage to attract 2 waiters who seemed to be hovering outside the restaurant door, they acknowledged me but went inside never to be seen again. By 8.30pm,I begged my husband to leave as it was getting cold and we still had not received any service but he thought we should hold on for another couple of minutes. Finally,a waitress approached just as the people beside had got up to leave, their order was taken first, ours next and some others on her way back..all written by hand...no electronic ordering device which is used in most bars and speeds up service. Finally, a few minutes after our neighbours had been served, our order was delivered at 8.40pm. We had time for only one drink before leaving for dinner. The bill came and we were overcharged for 1 extra vodka costing 5 Euro. That was finally sorted and the waitress apologised.
The location of this restaurant is superb but the management is really lacking. We had planned to have 2 drinks there but because of their poor service,we only had one...they lost out on over €23. The bar Needs to have a Permanent structured place serviced by a full time barperson. Walking back and forth across the road to the restaurant is utter madness...have they never heard of time and motion studies. We ate in the restaurant on one occasion and when the general manager appeared ,we were ignored and made to feel like the poor relations! We regularly eat at Vela beach at La Mata and their other restaurants,so recognised his very tall frame. This time, in this stunning restaurant,there were about 4 tables occupied and when we left and walked into Sunset,we were relieved to see only one empty table which proved to be ours! I do not think we will risk trying to get a pre dinner drink there in future...not good for the temperament. Should they provide a dedicated bar, then I may give it another chance.
I should also add that the wooded settee beside us was very badly broken and dangerous...would never be permitted in the U.K.

Restaurant is still going strong and the presentation of the food was again very good. Interesting way of serving, and quick enough. Food was good and portions big enough.

I have now been to both Vela Beach La Mata and its sister restaurant in Torrevieja -- and both deliver on quality food and service. Cooking is to a high standard. Great service today, so thanks Adrian, as you were so attentive and passionate about the restaurant.
