I read the reviews for this restaurant before we went to Nerja. I planned to go on the Weds evening but found it was closed on a Wednesday. We went on our last night having reserved a table the day before. (Friday). We were made very welcome and our table was waiting for us. The food was delicious and great... More

Have eaten here many times and never had a bad experience. The food is very tasty and there is plenty of it! The menu del dia offers exceptional value. The a la carte menu is extensive. Always a good idea to book.

We have been to Nerja for many years. This place is amazing!! Down on the Burrianna beach, you don't expect to get such fine food.The location disguises the master chef that lies within. Just sit back enjoy the atmosphere and truly appreciate the whole experience. Good choice of wine, friendly staff and the food is simply wonderful.

Fabulous food, great service and lovely staff. Very good prices and brilliant value. If you eat here at the beginning of your holiday you will be disappointed with all others. The menu will suit all tastes and the restaurant is very comfortable and clean. We'll done JJ's for providing a gastronomical delight.

Its hard to find a place to eat when just walking by with lots of others side by side. But this will not disappoint as the chef's passionate and the owner is not thinking about the money hes... More

Our dinner att JJ's was without a doubt the best meal during our two weeks vacation along the costa del sol/costa blanca coast. A small "hole in the wall" restaurant with friendly staff and delicious food. The hot chocolate fudge pudding is to die for! If you are in Nerja, don't miss this!
