This restaurant is like home from home when we visit Nerja on Holidays! Great wholesome food at fabulous prices and to be topped off by dining alfresco! Janet and Miguel are the friendly proprietors and hands down the best restraint on the Burriana Strip if not best in Nerja! Nerja wouldn't be the same without them and their culinary delights!

Called in for lunch and had excellent tuna salad, which included strawberries and orange slices. Cost including 2 drinks was 15 euros. Owner/waiter was not particularly jolly, but the food could not be faulted.

Great British good quality food and great value set menus. Well worth a visit,we used to go to Sloans but after that closed due to ill health and the sad loss of Gita,we wanted to find somewhere that served good quality food at reasonable prices and this is it. Went twice in 10 days and we weren't disappointed.

Been to Nerja for years but have never eaten in J.J's before. This year we thought we'd give it a go. I just fancied something different to what I'd been eating so when i saw home made quiche on offer i went for that. The portion on was on the generous side and definitely homemade,not a lot of pastry but... More

With the good tripadvisor reviews i did expect more from this one. Visited for lunch, not to crowded but took 45 minutes to get our food. The menu do not bring anything new compared to other lunch-places. The club sandwish was a good choice though.

We visited this restaurant on Burriana Beach in Nerja for dinner. The food is excellent, the portions large & the prices very reasonable around 12 to 15€ for a main course. There is also the usual fare on a children's menu. The restaurant is very popular & I would recommend booking in advance if a table is needed for 7... More

We went with 2 friends and all had different food. Our 2 friends were quite happy with their food but my husband and I were not. My first bit of advice is DO NOT order the Chicken Caesar Salad starter as it is a total misnomer! I have never before had kiwi fruit, strawberry, cucumber, sweet corn, tomato, asparagus and... More

Been to JJs a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food is second to none, service is efficient, my first visit I had the most beautiful trout dish, after which the chef came out to tell me where it was caught and how long he'd spent filleting it for me :) Very comfortable and atmospheric, better to book...
