“Genuinely Spanish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We went here last week because of all the good reviews - they were right! What a change, in the middle of Montemar a real Spanish restaurant full of Spanish customers. Really good Tapas and excellent house wines. We tried the Wild Boar, you should too - unusual and excellent. We ate several other tapas and enjoyed them all. Certainly on our list for future visits.

“food and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

The first time we were in la vina de ale we ate delicious tapas and drank excellent wine and were served by a very friendly and attentive waiter. It was so good that we had to go there a second time. Unfortunately this time the kitchen was already closed, but luckily the guys from the vinoteca made an exception and got us some delicious cheese, which went very well with our tasty wine. Above all we had a very nice chat with them. They gave us valuable advice for our sigthseeing trips and gave us great insight in the spanish (andalucian) way of life.
La vina de ale is definitely a place you have to go to, when you are in Torremolinos (or even a reason to visit Torremolinos)!

“September 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Great Spanish restaurant in Montemar. The food ranges from delicious tapas to splendid 3 course meals. Prices for food and wine are very reasonable. Menus in English can be had from the very helpful staff. The night we were there we shared a half portion of mixed croquettes and a large mixed meats dish - both were fantastic.Even the little starter (on the house) was delicious. The diners were mainly Spanish - but there were also English, French, Dutch and Irish diners enjoying this great little restaurant.

“Fab Tapas Food & Wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

This little gem is situated one street from the sea front and on passing you may not be impressed by the outside, however don't be put off go in and enjoy the experience.
This restaurant is alway packed with locals who come from afar to enjoy the food and have a chat.
You will have the choice to choose from the spanish or english menus & the Wine on offer is excellent & well priced.

“Good Tapas nice wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

We have visited this vinoteca but only drank wine and have never eaten here.After all the good reviews i thought i would eat here.We had some half portions of tpas and a nice bottle of wine.The wild boar and potatoes were lovely but they didn't have the range of Spainish tapas that i normally eat like the morcilla or burgos.All in all its a nice addition to Torremolinos restaurants.I would recommend to give it a try
