A delightful meal, the fish soup was excellent, the House Soup relatively uninteresting. The sole was delicious and comes with a small portion of vegetables and boiled potatoes. Water was only €1.89 for .5l. You do get charged 0.55c for each roll and for each portion of butter placed unasked on the table. Just irritating rather than being hugely expensive.... More

We went here 2 years ago for my partners' birthday and had lovely food on their terrace overlooking the sea. This year again we decided to repeat the experience and were somewhat disappointed; my partner was able to have her first choice, zarzuela, which was excellent, but unfortunately my first two choices9 advertised as their specialties, were not available. I... More

For the last 10 years of visiting Nerja, one of our first visits is to this restaurant as the fish dishes such as the whole seabass, the soupa de mariscos, thezarzuela, robo de toro, the rabbit are all that bit different and delicious. In good weather the terrace provides fantastic views so well worth booking but off season it is... More

Take a table on the terrace and have wonderful sea views at this family run restaurant on Carabeo. Good quality food and service. Try the Gambas al Pil Pil (prawns in garlic sauce), absolutely delicious! They even have football on the TV most nights which certainly pleased my sons and husband!

Go....eat, sit, watch, eat more.....A lunch for four of us and a blow out too cost €91.55 but it was worth every cent. The fish and carne we both very good. Try the Pez Espada "Bentiez" and the Solomillo Cerdo Pimi.

I can only speak about the several good experiences we have had over the years in this family restaurant. It may not be adventurous, but it can be relied on for good food. It is worth seeking it out, as it is not right in the centre of the town.

We have visited this little unpretentious restaurant a few times and never been disappointed, and cannot recognise the adverse comments from some other reviews. The small outside terrace has wonderful sea views and is lovely on a sunny day. You can see into the kitchen as you walk through, and be assured it is clean and well run. A good... More

Pros: * This restaurant has only one good selling point - its (rather small) terrace with prime sea views. * Location is 5 min walk from downtown Nerja which makes it easier to get a table here. Cons: * Menu is not very exciting to say the least. The typical tourist food - entrecote with fries, chicken breast with fries,... More

The restaurant itself is ok - fresh sea food at good location with a view, but is a little bit expensive in addition to the slow and poor service. Also don't order sangria, it's not good there; choose another drink.
