Our fave tapas bar in Nerja

The ambiance is loud lively and fun - the tapas free with every drink, great selection of sea food cooked fresh in front of you. We visit all the time when in Nerja x

This is a very popular bar especially with Spanish and gets very busy. You find a table by whatever means and the waiters come to you. Fish dishes are the star of the show but meat dishes are also available. The tapas are freshly prepared so some delay occurs but are included in the price of the drinks. The portions... More

We spent two months in Nerja and enjoyed El Pulguilla many times. The food is excellent (especially the seafood) and unlike some tapas bars, one is able to choose what one would like from a tapas menu. The staff are friendly and accommodating, the beer super chilled and the atmosphere clean and pleasant. Highly recommended for tapas in Nerja!

Fine and cosy place for a night-cab. They also serve food, but we came much too late. Nice and pleasant atmosphere.

A place we have to visit every time we visit Nerja. Centally located, no frills Tapas bar - quick/professional/friendly service, great value, Tapa of your choice with each drink. Mainly seafood (which we love) but a few meat options for people who are not fish fans. Best Besugo Tapa I have found anywhere. Don't worry that the clientelle is predominantly... More

Never managed to come here to eat. The place seems to be positively recognised for their tapas and fish, so we must try next time. However, for a late night drink it is also fine.

The full meals are lovely too, both in the inside restaurant in the winter and out on the Terrace in the summer. The staff are lovely and always take great... More
