Loved this place in March and it was our first choice for dinner on our return in July. Great variety of tapas and racions with friendly service and good vibe. Will be back in September.

One of the best tapas bars we have been to. Very popular with locals, which is always a good sign. Excellent and highly quality dishes. Friendly and helpful staff. Great atmosphere too.

The guy from our apartment recommended La Vina and we were glad he did. We had a lovely time there and enjoyed local delicacies surrounded by local people - always a good sign.
