We entered this restaurant at the right time before it was too crowded. I heard that this is one of the best places in La Linea. From the point of what I've orfered, I say that it depends. I had really good jamón ham, then too salty tomatoes, hen again too salty piece of beef, which was prepared really well. I don't understand whay the staff soltes food that much. Price was average, maybe a little bit more expensive. We received liquer shots in small chocolate forms. This was interesting. We were able to pay with a card.

We got there about 8:30 and it was already crowded. We got 2 seats at the end of the bar next to the grill. From here we could watch all of the action. The grill person was busy all night. The 2nd chef prepared the cold tapas in front of us. Didn’t find an English menu so we made do and got great food. Everyone was busy but helpful. Very little English spoken. We spent 3 hours eating and drinking and only spent 42 euro. Very little seafood on the menu, mostly pork, beef and cheese.
Loved it!

Came here with Sister & brother in law under a recommendation from a guy on the plane! Tricky to find and as per usual, in a slightly dodgy area of La Linea, but well worth the visit, wonderful tapas really nice smiley friendly staff and beautifully authentically Spanish..1 start off as no potatoes or carbs!! Harsh but hey!!

Simply, I visit La Linea often and this place consistently is the best place to go for a full meal or one leg of your Spanish tapas run. It has a limited menu, primarily based around mini-sandwiches (montaditos or canapes), but every one is excellent. They also have a specials menu which includes the mini-burger and the "delicia iberica" which just melts in your mouth. Add to this the free and customary chocolate shot at the end of your meal and you probably just walked out waiting for the next time that you can go back. Staff are also very friendly.

Called in for an after dinner drink so didn’t have any tapas but the service and the bar were fantastic! The 6 women behind the bar serving drinks and food were fast, efficient, friendly and patient with non English speaking patrons. We would definitely recommend and wish we had more days here to return and try the food which looked great! We stayed for a couple of hours enjoying the atmosphere. Got there about 9.30pm
