This restaurant should not be missed Fantastic food on the traditional English side of Nerja Dining. Service Impeccable - you can tell Manuel, Graham & Janet have worked in higher pressured enviroments in the UK as service is seamless & to be commended. Always a good consistent meal in comfy surroundings. Love the banter with Manuel and Grahams dry humour.... More

We ate lunch here almost every day of our holiday. The food choice was brilliant, but the portions were way too big! Everything we had was absolutely delicious and freshly made. Staff were lovely and prices very reasonable, considering the portion size.

Great lunch menu and first class service worth a visit when you are down at Burriana. Right on the front but can get out of the sun. We will definitely visit next time we are in Nerja

Really enjoyed the food! Attention received as soon as we arrived with blackboards of food listed; so much choice! I had baked salmon which was delicious. My husband had steak which was cooked just right. Crepe suzette for dessert finished off a superb meal!
