Your typical tapas place with many of the classics on the menu. No disappointments. They consistently delivered from the albondigas to the fish onto the tortilla and a few else in between. Yes - the pork cheeks are awesome and so was our Brazilian waitress.

After feeling slightly disappointed we couldn't get a table at the popular El Rincon restaurant in manchester (you can't reserve tables for two so have to take a chance by turning up on the night), we stumbled across La Vina and have now added this to our list of favourite restaurants in manchester! We were greeted by friendly staff who said they'd be able to seat us in 20-30 mins. So we enjoyed a lovely glass of wine at the bar and were seated as promised within half an hour. The restaurant was very busy yet we didn't feel neglected for one minute. Our Spanish waitress was very warm and friendly.. The food was authentic and full of flavour. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend La Vina to anyone looking for a restaurant with a great atmosphere, excellent tapas and wine and brilliant service. Can't wait to return soon!

Choice of Three tapas dishes from around menu del dia which had about ten dishes on it for £9.99 isn't bad for that quality of lunch. The tapas were tasty and portions generous. Three tapas amounts to a very filling lunch. Deep fried fish in light batter was tasty and fresh. Fried potatoes with peppers and onions were quite nice and the meatballs were good. Pleasant surroundings and perfectly acceptable service. Varied wine list including two varieties of Albariño Can't comment on evening meals but would recommend for lunch.

Brilliant restaurant. Love how it is lit by candlelight, gives it a romantic ambience. Also the sangria was amazing, and lots of choice, cosmopolitan sangria, sangria de cava, yum!
Then the food, absolutely amazing, I don't think we had a dish that was anything other than delicious. Best Spanish omelette in town. Very reasonable prices and friendly smiley staff. Especially the manager, she had a double barrel first name but I any remember what it was :). Couldn't recommend this more!

We went for a meal before going to a show. We had an lovely meal in a lovely atmosphere looking down on the main room. The waiter was helpful in choosing food and wine, and we would eat there again so we can work our way through the menu.Great place.
