Firstly let me get something straight out there... the hot chocolate is an absolute must! Thick, creamy almost melted chocolate consistency! Totally to die for on its own. However add great service, the most amazing decor inside and you're truly in heaven. Well worth a visit.

If ever you have time to kill in La Linea this is a great coffee shop to people watch and enjoy a really nice coffee! Soak up the atmosphere at your leisure.

We found this bar on our first night in La Linea and visited every day. The staff are very welcoming and the bat is an excellent place to sit and people watch whilst relaxing with a drink. It was very busy with locals due to being out of season and we felt it offered good value for money. A must... More

It has a beautifully decorated large bar area with a mezzanine balcony and outside tables with gas heaters. It was packed and atmosphere was great. Shame there were insufficient numbers of staff.

On the last night of our weeks holiday we found this place my wife and I had excellent meals but the chips were thin and overcooked and not that hot - but was really enjoyable. Slow service. The decor is very good with an upstairs dining area up a very ornate round staircase. We sat inside as it was raining... More

We have one golden rule when looking for a restaurant in a town we don't know; always look for a busy place. In this case however we were sorely let down. Too late we realised that people come here for coffee and cake- not to eat. My lasagna was too heavy on (a processed) white sauce, short of recognisable meat... More

I may be an odd individual but I really don't like hair in my food. When it comes in the form of a really long black curly thread that surely did not come from me, then we have a problem. After I found this problem in my burger, I noticed the waiter who just took it away and asked me... More
