We were on our honeymoon in Nerja 45 years ago and back then we wanted to have a meal on the terrace. Unfortunately, it was booked then. I think the restaurant still has the same name and it still serves Italian food. On a return visit to Nerja, we made a point to eat here. The outside terrace was full... More

We had a lovely meal sat on the edge of the terrace looking out over the sea. The staff were great and the food was delicious. The children's menu also got the thumbs up from our daughter.

Went for breakfast, greeting was poor. Sat outside to eat, the view from this restaurant is fantastic. Food is good, different breakfast choices from your usual full english.

Dropped in by chance for lunch and was shown out to a table on the balcony overlooking the sea. The views are stunning. We ordered pizzas which were great and we'll priced. Some of the food the other diners were having looked fantastic, I'll return next time I'm in Nerja.

But welcome poor and food not much better. We have visited Nerja for 20 years plus and have visited this restaurant a couple of times, popped in there this week cos our kids fancied pizza and their favourite Bella Roma was closed for the evening. The staff here were unwelcoming and unfriendly - we asked a couple of questions about... More

Incredible views and fresh food make this place a must if visiting Nerja. I have been here for lunch and also just for coffee earlier in the day. I have never been disappointed. Lunch is always busy and I that is a good sign. Prices are very reasonable. I look forward to coming back to this spot again and again.

The terrace is great, great views thought they really like to pack the tables, its actually really nice to sit inside too, american diner style red leather and white retro furniture. It not cheap, but its not expensive either for sea front dining, great sunset spot.

This is an unpretentious pizza and pasta place, but does these very well, with attentive service and unparalleled views of the small beach and the Balcon de Europa. The risotto was very good too!
