Home made food at its finest!! You will have to book. The chef really knows her stuff. If u don't go at least once on your stay you've missed out!! And I'm a chef also. Couldn't recommend more highly

I agree with all the previous reviews of this great place to stop and eat. We arrived early 6pm well before normal Spanish dining times. The all day menu offered great choice at great value, followed with a fantastic cheesecake we shared and only just finished! We would love to visit again as we are very pleased to find this... More

An excellent mix of hearty Spanish and English fare served by the owners who make sure every Client is given a friendly welcome, good food and attentive service. The popularity of this restaurant is proven by the need to book for evening reservations even at the beginning and tail end of the season.

Managed to get a table without booking (VERY popular place) after reading previous reviews. What a find! GREAT food, friendly staff, clean/stocked toilets, four of us had two courses and drinks for under 100 euro. We were staying a 45 minutedrive away but worth the trip, the beach is great too, jet ski hire, and all sorts of water sports... More

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.
