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

Very nice decor and free internet Staff are a little ignorant and could do with listening a bit more Plenty of seating both out and in.

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

Food was nice and the staff were friendly. Service was poor as you had to make yourself known to the waiter before being asked what you would like. Not bad prices, ideal for family meal out and there is an outdoor and indoor area for seating

We had most of our meals in nearby Gibraltar, as there were few food places in La Linea that looked like our scene. But this place stands out as exceptional against its competition. We were welcomed, had a good English meal, nice alcoholic drink, and the price was reasonable. We ate outside watching the world go by. Perfect.

We stumbled across this place while looking for a place to eat dinner that was before 7 or 8 o'clock. It has been discouraging to find restaurants that serve meals at a time when we normally eat dinner here in Spain, so we were delighted to find a place that could at least serve us something other than pastries and...
