I was recommended this place by a Spanish friend. We have been well treated over the last week in a variety of places, none of which I would complain about, except they were clearly set up for the huge visiting tourist population. I requested a place that is for the locals, not the tourists, My friend gave me 2 recommendations... More

This is tapas place. We ordered different tapas but quality changed. Some was good but not all. Some comes to the table on top of the paper. I don't like to see this kind of in good restaurant. Otherwise good place. Special thanks to wine list, it is very good to compare many other Torremolinos restaurants.

There was a 20-30 minute wait for a table at this small, bustling restaurant, despite there being empty tables galore at those beside this establishment. Great service, attentive yet unobtrusive waiters and stunning food.

Great lunch. Stuffed peppers, grilled vegetables, and mixed croquettes. Attentive staff we will be back. Can't be faulted.

Took family with small children. Staff was welcoming, food was very good and service excellent. Had to wait a bit for table and was given free tapa while waiting. The flamiquen was very good, but coating was too crunchy for small children. Not a problem for me to eat for them😊Highly recommend for good food at the right price!

Having read such glowing reports of La Vina de Ale, we were disappointed to say the least. All the tapas, though plentiful, lacked finesse. The taste wasn't too bad, just the presentation. And for somewhere that calls itself a vinoteca, the range of wines was limited. It appears it is always busy with people queuing up for tables. However, the... More
