A great lunch

I have only been in for lunch but have to recommend for anyone down on the beach. The food is very good and very easy to pay for. The service is very good also. It was the comfortable seating that attracted us first and the rest certainly didn't disappoint.

Popped in here for a quick lunch time bite to eat. My wife and i were pleased with what we received so decided to make a return visit the following evening. Miserable waiter with zero personality and a luke warm meal. They should stick to lunch times only.

Was quite unimpressed. With a high trip advisor rating for this area I was expecting a lot more. Not a bad place but very average.

Paid this place a visit as we were passing one night and it looked quite busy, so i assumed it must be good. How wrong can you be. A miserable unattentive waiter who seemed to be doing us a favour by being in his restaurant. Over a hour long wait for 2 main courses. When the food arrived the best... More

A year since the last review and visited frequently during this period. The food quality, standard and variety has never varied. Awesomely good. This time my wife and I decided to try the fish, sea bass for her and salmon with a citrus butter for me. It was a meal we both decided we wished would not end it was... More

A superb "no fuss" place to eat, fine food, lovely staff and great atmosphere along with value for money make this a place for a great night out. Will definitely be back in 2015.

We went twice as the food was so good. Only small so never gets overcrowded. Plenty of choice plus a specials board hard to choose as all looked delicious.Need to book in evening as gets busier then. Only downside not very good toilets.

Another of the excellent restaurants at Burriana. As soon as you enter you receive a warm welcome from Jesus and his wife Jane. A family run restaurant which offers excellent service and a pleasant atmosphere. The menu has a wide range of options at reasonable prices. The fixed price 2 or 3 course deals are good value.

We were in Nerja for Christmas and had our Christmas dinner at J.J's, from the moment we arrived we were seated at our lovely decorated table, and given a glass of Kir Royale and some tasty nibbles. Then we were treated to a wonderful 6 course meal, which was just magnificent. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal and our afternoon... More

I have been to this restaurant several times over the years and still feel it one of the best in Nerja. The food is delicious and service is faultless. Their vegetables are wonderful and not mushy and I have never had a bad meal there. Set menu value for money and pork shank is wonderful.
