La Vista – Peraleja Golf Resort – Sucina

Every time we come to our second home in Sucina, I make it a priority to have dinner (at least once) at La Vista.

Just a short drive from the town centre of Sucina, La Vista is located in the Peraleja Golf Resort with views spanning not only the course, but of the stunning Mar Menor.

Every time we go, the menu is completely different and whilst limited on its offerings (which I think shows a better menu), it has something to cater for all. My husband and I adore steak and it’s hard not to choose it every-time (also its boring) so last night we skipped the starters after I had irritated the hell out of him all day by complaining how fat I was and went straight for the mains. I had the rack of lamb on minty mash with some pretty tasty peas and the husband went for the duck. Whilst mine was amazing, I had serious food envy as the duck was not only huge but cooked to absolute perfection and served on pak choi and these amazing cabbage deep fried ball things (am sure there is a technical name).

The wine list is extensive and it is here that we first discovered Paco & Lola white wine which has become one of my favourites.  We had a bottle of that to start and then realising we’d ordered lamb and duck, had a few glasses of fab Copa Vino De La Casa which was only 4.50EUR a glass.  Now I say glass but it was more like half a bottle per glass and it was lovely. After dinner we each had a Disaronino and shared a mini-cheesecake which was also outstanding.

I love this place and will continue to go back. The service is outstanding, every waitress we have had has been exceptional with the Head Chef coming out at the end of the evening to say hello to everyone is another draw for me. I love that kind of service/detail.

In terms of holding a private event there, at the end of the restaurant there is a private dining room that would accommodate I would say 10 and cant see why a full restaurant buyout wouldn’t be allowed. I would love to use it for a summer party, gala dinner or perhaps an awards dinner.  That balcony overlooking the golf course and the Mar Menor offers some pretty amazing views.

Our bill came to 102.20EUR which I think was cheap for one of Sucina’s fanciest restaurants.
