Worth a visit just to soak up the Spanish atmosphere. Bar lovely and cool out of the hot summer sun and large outside seating area (restaurant) to the back. Order a drink in the bar and you can select a Tapas of your choice....Mussels, Clams, Squid, Pork. Excellent service in bar....will definitely return!

traditional and tasty tapas - simply done. Canteen style setting but don't let that put you off! The restaurant can be accessed from both sides and there is a large outdoor seating area which is a nice contrast to the busy indoor area. Worth a visit!

This is a fantastic tapas bar in the centre of Nerja. It is authentic and full of Spanish which is what we love. The food is great and great value. Spent many a night trying to converse with the locals in our very limited Spanish. If you go to Nerja do not miss this gem of a restaurant.

If you are a fan of fresh fish this is the restaurant for you. It is casual and noisy but that is all part of the experience. We chose prawns in garlic sauce which were the nicest prawns of the holiday. There are a must have if you are visiting the restaurant. We also had monkfish and swordfish which were... More

If you are a fan of seafood tapas then beyond all reasonable doubt this place should top your list of must visit restauants. They serve a huge range of well prepared reasonably priced dishes in a truely Spanish family run atmosphere.

Definitely worth a visit. Doesn't look that big from the front but one you go through the bar area to the back, it's massive!! The place was going like a fair! Mainly fish based tapas but a few other choices too. Good wine, good bread, good cheap tapas and a great atmosphere. Full of locals.

We go here everytime in Nerja, 2 to 3 times a year. If you don't like fish then don't bother. The bar area at the front is for tapas, whereas the huge dining area out the back is for a more laid back lunch. The fish is all locally caught and fresh. Service is always fast and my advice would... More
