La Vista has panoramic windows all around, the views of the tranquil marina add much to the dining experience you are guaranteed to enjoy. The private boardwalk, literally on the edge of the marina, can accommodate 32 diners for an "al fresco" lunch or evening meal complete with outdoor heaters to compensate for the sometimes unpredictable English summer.
La Vista's friendly staff will be delighted to assist with the menu and specials board. The very popular seasonal daily fresh fish specialities include sea bass, sole, skate, john dory, mussels, crab and lobster and many more. In addition to the range of fish dishes on offer you can also choose from succulent steaks, poultry, pizzas and pastas all freshly prepared to order.
But when summer isn't here, cast away those winter blues and pretend you are on holiday for the day. You will receive a warm welcome in the reception area and bar featuring a superb wall mural depicting the view from restaurant toward the exclusive marina and beyond.

Scoozi Bar & Restaurant
Italian restaurants are loved the world over. There are some great ones, some excellent ones and some very average ones. So what makes a good Italian?
The design should have integrity and traditional value, with a warm and friendly atmosphere. The welcome must be genuine and inviting and the service relaxed yet professional. The food and wine will of course be excellent, but at prices everyone can afford.

It has taken us some time and a lot of thought to create SCOOZI! We firmly believe it has the right blend of ingredients that makes for a proper Italian restaurant and we hope you enjoy it. After all we created it especially for you.

From the very first taste, you will notice straight away that there's something very different about our food.
The reason why, is that everything is 100% home made. No pre-made sauces, no pre-pulped or pre-cooked anything... It's all the real deal.
All dishes are lovingly created using an incredible range of specially imported ingredients and the finest local produce.
Even the Guacamole is hand made at the restaurant.

He moved to England only a few years ago so he truly is the genuine article and one of the main reasons why the food tastes so good.
