As others have said, this tapas/wine bar is consistently busy, even when other restaurants and bars on the street are completely empty. They do excellent tapas and wine, and the service was prompt and friendly. We were seated promptly upon arrival, and found the menu included English translations which was appreciated, especially as a lot of the customers were Spanish.... More

Off the main drag this excellent restaurant is worth finding. If you can locate the Hotel Ameragua you are close. Just continue in the direction for Belamadena on the same street (front of Hotel) and the restaurant is another 150mtrs approx. Having passed many empty and half empty restaurants on the way, El Vino de Ale was full and we... More

I wanted to try a good regional Tapas restaurant, and reading reviews picked this one to try, but have to say, the service left a lot to be desired, all staff rushing around and just not making you feel very relaxed. (I appreciate if it's busy, staff have to be quick but...) I didn't get the food I ordered, but... More

If you are looking for something different, this is a great place to have lunch or dinner. Excellent food, the best vinoteca in La Costa del Sol. Volveremos!

This was the second time that we have visited this lovely restaurant with our Spanish friend. The staff are friendly and the food is amazing. Lovely tapas and very different cuisine for this area. We will definitely be returning on our next visit. Just wish it was closer.

I like this place for a stop off now and again as it offers good servcie and a good choice of food - and drink of course!! It si located in the Montemar area one street behind the promenade (just along from the Pez Espada) and roughly half-way between Carihuela and Benalmadena port. Not the best laid oput restaurant but... More

Best food and service in Torremolinos. It's a must go place!! Here you drink and buy the wine you are drinking and also get very good recommendations by their staff. A typical Spanish restaurant with a modern touch. Very rare among all the English pubs and bad restaurants along the coast. A must visit when in the area!

What a shock, a restaurant in Torremolinos full of Spanish people! Do go late, it livens up after 8.00pm. Lots of really good tapas - try the wild boar it is still really excellent. Talk to the owner about food and wine - before you know it other diners will join in with good advice and fun.
