The service was awful. Chicken wings not cooked. But the thing that annoyed our group most was the attitude of the female manager. She was confrontational and lacked any customer service skills. We visit Nerja a lot but will not go back ever to this...More

Stumbled upon this restaurant and as it looked to be authentic Spanish we decided to have dinner. I had the suckling pig which was a disappointment. There was little meat on the joint and it wasn't very tender. We were overcharged for drinks which when...More

we went to this bar over 20 years ago when we were in Nerja celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary . At that time later in the evening local guitarists came in & we enjoyed wonderful live music. We are going back next April & wonder if this still takes place there or in other bars in Nerja? We would be grateful to have information. Many thanks

Hello again Glenda, If you are looking for a decent pot of tea with a freshly baked scone, do try the Good Stuff Cafe on Calle Castilla Perez. It is owned by young Irish couple, everything is home baked. Enjoy Ruth
