If you're in the area, then this restaurant will not disappoint. We have been to Calahonda twice now and only discovered this place this time round, and it was so good we went twice! There is a great choice of tapas, the King Prawns, Garlic Chicken, Tomato Salad, Chorizo, Spanish Omelette, to name a few, were all a good portion and delicious, and the Meat Paella we shared was probably the best I've had. The service was friendly and efficient, and the cocktails were excellent! It doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's quaint and cosy inside, and never looked too busy to get a table.

Whilst visiting Calahonda we wanted to try real Spanish tapas and this is no mean feat with one in our group having a severe allergy. This was no problem at all at La Latina and Esther and the staff helped us have the most enjoyable (and safe) couple of meals we have ever had. Both times we visited we felt like we had the most delicious food and were welcomed like old friends. Our particular favourite was the pulled pork. We tried quite a variety of dishes between us and none of them were disappointing. The restaurant is small and has a wonderful atmosphere, nothing is a problem for the staff and you don't feel rushed. You can look right out of the open front as you enjoy your meal too. It is a popular place and we were sad to leave at our last visit. We would all thoroughly recommend the restaurant and will certainly be back next time to that wonderful place.

Lovely and typical place. The food is very good, the staff is nice + quick service and the prices are not high at all.

Our first visit to Calahonda and as always we look for authentic local food and found La Latina.As has been said its family run by Esther and her son Miguel who make every visit an enjoyable pleasure.Their hospitality even runs to giving you their phone number, if you try making the tapas at home and get stuck and need help!.The menu is small, basically Tapas and Paellas with 4 specials. Any more with such a small staff and fresh cooking becomes impossible.

Everything we had was excellent, tasted authentic and fresh and they tell you it takes 25 mins for your order to be done. In the meantime have a drink with bread and olives, chill and watch the world go by. So many thanks for enjoyable visits and see you in August

Our first time in Calahonda and our first family holiday, as my wife and I had our nine month old son with us in Spain. So the customary late night Tapas wasn't going to happen, as we were heading out and about around 5pm looking for somewhere to eat, which was not a problem in the town.

It was by chance that we found La Latina which is located in the middle of Calahonda's 'strip'. The little restaurant being charming, traditional and more importantly served great food. Every Tapas we ordered was excellent and the recommened wine was going down to well. So good we decided to come here again on our last night. Warmly welcomed back by owners and another great meal. Highly recommened.
