“Love the vino”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

I have been going here for a few years now, and love it. The wine is excellant with a good selection of tapas as well. A nice find in tourist / Irish bar central montemar. Def pop in if you are in the area, you will not be disappointed.

“Exquisite!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Best food and service in Torremolinos.
It's a must go place!!
Here you drink and buy the wine you are drinking and also get very good recommendations by their staff.
A typical Spanish restaurant with a modern touch. Very rare among all the English pubs and bad restaurants along the coast.
A must visit when in the area!

“Tales of Tapas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

What a shock, a restaurant in Torremolinos full of Spanish people! Do go late, it livens up after 8.00pm. Lots of really good tapas - try the wild boar it is still really excellent. Talk to the owner about food and wine - before you know it other diners will join in with good advice and fun.

“A must visit in Torremolinos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

I am living now here in Torremolinos for 2 years. For me it was not easy to choose the right location for just having a good wine and traditional Tapas. Why wasn´t it easy ? Well, Torremolinos is mostly dedicated to tourist - which is no weakness but it is a fact. Therefore most restaurants are naturally offering a boring choice of Tapas and wines which genuine people from Spain would not eat. On the other hand, most traditional, Spanish restaurants with for sure good food and wines are so old fashioned, that it isn´t my style either.
La vina de Ale is different. The ambiente is modern, comfortable but not too fancy. The staff is really anxious to look for you and your table and the food is brilliant. The owner is a mid thirty guy who is always obvious among his guests and really friendly. The choice of wine is excellent and the prices are really fair.
So if you ever come to Torremolinos. Go there - it is a must.
