Ate here last night with a group of 6 friends whilst on a walking holiday. One of the group had eaten here alone as he had arrived from Madrid before the rest of us. We were treated like long lost friends, nothing was too much trouble and 7 clean plates says it all. The fixed price menu, 2 or 3... More

Without doubt this is one of the best restaurants in Nerja.Sunday lunch is particularly a time to visit, if you are luck enough to get a reservation,by booking in advance. Whilst you cannot please all the people all the time yet this restaurant likely pleases everyone .A must when in Nerja !.

The café is located across the road from Burriana Beach and provides pleasant comfortable surroundings. We visited at lunch time with a small group of friends. The café has a varied menu as well as daily specials and all food is 'home cooked'. The food and friendly, efficient service was excellent and reasonably priced. We had a pleasant afternoon enjoying... More

Already visited earlier on in the year. Arrived in Nerja late evening, just around the corner from our apartment so were able to get a meal. As usual the food was good, the service prompt, especially the old gentleman who helps out. We went back on our last day and had a lovely lunch to see us on our journey... More

If you want to get British food in Spain this is a great place to come.Sunday lunches are great. The Burriana beach is opposite if the weather allows which which is nearly all the time and you can go for a paddle with the kids.

Nice location opposite Burrianna beach. Family run business, who obviously care very much about their reputation because the food and the service are always very good. Good value

This is a very nice place. We got a very warm welcome. The menu is varied with additional specials. Great choice of puddings was extra special.

I have to say that I was drawn to the varied, reasonable, "posh pub" menu that was published on a blackboard outside the property so called in and booked at JJ's for 7 of us ranging in age from 5 to 75 on a busy weekend evening. All the recent reviews are true - this place really does offer exceptional... More
