This is a fantastic tapas restaurant!!! It is a traditional, spanish tapas bar that both holiday makers and locals are welcome due to the friendly, busy staff. The atmosphere allows you to soak up the spanish culture and enjoy the most delicious food while drinking a refreshing tinto verano with friends and/ or family :) I always look forward to... More

Behind the busy bar is the large restaurant where we ate - there is a covered area and also an outside area. The seafood we had was some of the best we have eaten. the service was excellent, attentive but not 'in your face'. We would definitely go back. good value for money

We have probably reviewed El pulguilla before. This is our local home from home. Been coming to Nerja for ten years and this is the Spanish equivalent of our local pub. Excellent, mostly fish and shellfish tapas and racions. Tapas free with every drink. We have never eaten in the restaurant area, but that is our personal choice, we prefer... More

Although there is a restaurant through the back we like to come and sample the Tapas here. We tend to visit more tapas bars in Nerja rather than restaurants. This is one of our favourites. Don't let the noise and the bustle put you. staff will come to you and you don't need to go to the bar. really speedy... More

This was the second time in Nerja and on both occasions we have visited this place for a Cana. A small beer and a tapas. Usually fish but their pork loin and skewers are excellent too. Couldn't possibly think of a visit top Nerja without going here. Traditionally Spanish but a modern Tapas area. Out the back there is a... More

We arrived here walking into a very busy, very Spanish bar. Before we turned and left we were pointed to the back of the building where there is a big outdoor (covered) eating area. This place is a fish lovers dream (unfortunately I am not a fan of fish) but there were plenty of other yummy dishes! I especially recommend... More
