Whenever I am in the area (at least once a year) I do make time for a stop at La Chimenea. It is an institution with great service and delicious tapas. It can get very crowded (understandably) and you might not be able to get a table. It is still worth to stick around and enjoy some tapas and drinks... More

What's more to say? It is truly the best tapas in La Linea no doubt. It is a small place and you have to come early if you want to get a seat as it gets packed really quickly. Staff are behind the counter and don't go around to serve table so everything from ordering to picking up food ,... More

The establishment is a lovely, little, restaurant situated not far from the cathedral in the town centre. The food is fantastic and service is great considering this place can get very busy. Tapas are well priced and won't disappoint, if you are in the area be sure to make time for a meal here - you won't regret it.

We came across La Chimenea on a short stay in La Linea and liked it so much we ate there on both nights. The restaurant was busy, the service good and the food excellent and very good value with a wide range of dishes to choose from.

Saw this on trip advisor and contacted them. Couldn't reserve as 10pm was too late but was put on the waiting list. Got there and delighted with the decor, looked how you imagine a tapas in Spain should look. It was packed but we got a drink and only had to wait about 5 minutes for a table. Luckily enough...

Great atmosphere and great food and amazing value for 5 hungry and thirsty crew about to set sail. What is described in the English translation of the menu as "filled doughnut shaped bread" ( I can't remember the Spanish) was a highlight. Highly recommended.

We were a party of nine English ladies celebrating a birthday. We contacted La Chimenea in advance as we know how busy Saturday nights can be. It's a small restaurant and seating is limited. We had a great time. We were well looked after by all the staff and the food was fantastic. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and... More

.. We got there at 13:00 which was great because by 14:00 is was heaving. Gorgeous little inexpensive tapas. Everyone enjoyed all the dishes ordered especialy the meat delice de iberico. We found the menu tricky to translate into English but we managed - waitresses helped immensely. Great resto.
