More of a winter type bar, small, warm and cozy. The roscas are very good and the tapa delicia iberica. Good selection of wines. The only thing that lets the place down is the lack of personality behind the bar. The waitresses appear to have told not to smile.

I am a regular traveller to Spain and have have been to different cities. The tapas in this place are amazing. I can't recommend the place enough. I don't know how it was rated 3 dollars on it's price review because it's food is inexpensive. The quality is good, service efficient and they will try and help you translate where... More

Guided by Trip Adviser we walked to this restaurant from our La Lina Hotel Opening time is 8:30, which required some standing around on our part, but very well worth the wait. The place, which is immaculate, is tiny with four or five tables and room at the bar. We preferred to sit on stools at the bar and watch... More

If you are looking for good tapas, look no further than this establishment which was recommended to me by a local. The place was heaving, but it was well worth visiting. Don't go without trying the Iberian pork! I will certainly return next time I am in that part of Europe.

This place is amazing, it's a tiny little spot with really great tapas probably the best I've had. The ladies that work here work so hard and they make the place great. The food is great quality, fresh, flavorsome and interesting, the staff are friendly, the atmosphere is great. We loved it so went back a second time for more.... More

While it is a little off the beaten track this tapas bar is well worth seeking out and we returned a second time during our stay to sample even more of the delicious tapas prepared freshly by the friendly girls behind the bar. La Chimenea is constantly full of locals which is a great indication of the quality of food... More

Absolutely fantastic place. Each tapas dish was so flavoursome, delicious. The menu has quite a wide selection, the chief clearly has a huge passion for food. I wish we could have visited again. I'd get there early if you can because it soon filled up!

what a lovely find. I had eaten at quite a few tapas places in la linea a lot of which are overpriced and seem to serve up the same Argentinian tapas which seem to consist of a plate of fatty meat! 5 stars to la chimenea...could not fault it, great fresh food, friendly service, lovely atmosphere and extremely reasonable prices....

We had a fabulous meal at this restaurant - there were 8 of us and we all chose a few tapas each and share a bit of everything - must say it was excellent - the service was top class
