This Tapas restaurant was a great surprise is a touristic place. I highly recommend the Pinchos, fantastic and tasty Spanish food in gourmet style. The top was Milhojas Mango with goat cheese, simply delicious!

We stopped in after a brisk hike around Cerro Gordo, ready for a few drinks and some Tapas. The bar was filled so we sat at a table and ordered a Cava and a beer. My wife orders Cava at every restaurant we go to and, although it was a nice tasting brand, the price was at the high end... More

There are two types of dining experiences to be had in La Bola Marina. In one part there is a bar and area for tapas and food, but separately there is a dining room with its own menu. We have had tapas in the bar area on previous occasions and that can be a great experience especially in the evenings... More

We chose from the sharing menu including the aubergine with honey and enjoyed every bit of it. The menu del did looked excellent value and the wine was also excellent. Would definitely return.

Had dinner here and enjoyed it very much. Nothing special in the cuisine but food was tasty and good quantity. Would eat here again if in the area.

Had dinner here if you can call it that. Prawn salad with tinned fruit on, 4 prawns barely edible. Followed by what looked like a microwaved frozen chicken breast which was inedible. My husband had quiche which was ok, followed by pork with an orange sauce that tasted like tomato soup. I would definately avoid this place.

We dined there a couple of days, and the reservation was made on Messenger, good for my limited Spanish! The bar is lovely and clean, the waiters very smart and friendly. We had the set meal which had three choices for every course, and it was all excellent, obviously freshly cooked. Only slight complaint, the tables are too small! Well... More
