We enjoyed a quiet meal here, the atmosphere is relaxed, we ate out a lot in Nerja, the restaurant is a little more classier than most here, the food is good but is perhaps a little more pricier than others, the steak was very good, wine for what it cost not that special

Very Spanish. Terrific atmosphere, always busy. Great value for bar and snacks. Can't comment on restaurant as we didn't dine there but enjoyed the drinks and free tapas.

Casual atmosphere, lots of bar seating in the front restaurant. Free tapas of choice with every drink. Good, reasonably priced food to order. Mix of locals and tourists. Back area is huge with loads of seating, but was deserted on a thursday at 9pm when i went. However, that might have been due to the fact there was an italian... More

We went this place with the recommendation of our hostel. When you first entered, you will encounter with a more pub like place. At the back of the place they have more proper seating area at the terrace and garden area which are more quiet. The stuffs are nice and friendly. The food was delicious. We tried various seafood.

Loved this place !! Been to Nerja a few times and love this place. Fresh food, great atmospheres and truly authentic. The tapas is to die for !! We got married on Nerja and brought family and friends here and people raved about it. A place full of locals is the place to be :-)

typical spanish fish and tapas bar and restaurant. The bar is always busy, with tiled walls and spanish noise levels. In the back is a large restaurant area, not cosy but the fish is always fresh and excellent.

Went there because a friend found it recommended in a list. Its an old fashioned fish restaurant with fairly basic furnishings. It looks like it has been around for a long time and has a faithful clientele. I ordered bacaloa (cod) fritters and had asked the waiter whats in it, eg potato in the batter and he replied, just cod.... More

A good traditional Spanish tapas bar serving good food at a very good price. The food is all cooked and served the Spanish way. It can get very busy at times and is visited by lots of friendly Spanish people all enjoying themselves. It is a good experience to be trying different tapas amongst the Spanish people. Give it a...
