Ate here our first night in Nerja after a long trip. Wanted a good meal. This did not disappoint. Looked like a pick up bar in front, but you keep walking and come out the other side where there is as large an outdoor area with a large number of tables (50-60 at least). Great atmosphere on a beautiful Spanish... More

They have the best fish tapas, a great atmosphere, jam packed with locals and ice cold beer and very respectable house vino. If you go to Nerja then defintely go to the Pulguilla.

This is a nice seafood place. Waiter was very attentive and explained some details about the menu. Good choice if you want a relaxed not so high key outdoor seafood dining experience.

With the outward appearance of a café it is easy to be put off, but this is one of the ‘must visit’ places to eat, so do not pass it by. Each drink comes with a tapa and there are lots to choose from, but if you love fish and sea-food then this is Nirvana. Try the squid, mackerel, anchovies,... More

We looked at this place and thought it was a fast food place, so avoided it. What a mistake! Our second week we decided to give it a go, because my cousin (who lives in Nerja) told it was really nice. We tried it and ate in there every lunchtime, and twice in the evening. What a fab place. Frequented... More

Having visited this restaurant a couple of years ago, I was extremely happy that the quality of the food hadn't changed. We ordered a selection of seafood and it was all straight from the sea. Great quality, efficient service and reasonably priced. Will definitely visit again for the best seafood in town!

The last few reviews sum up perfectly what you will find at El Pulguilla. I called in at luchtime when my wife was shopping and within a short space of time the place started to fill up with locals. Plenty of waiters on hand to take orders and a great selection of quality fish and other seafood at the counter... More

It's quite a bright 'modern canteen' type of place but don't let it put you off (you may be like us and like the typically Spanish surroundings). It's quite minimalist but the food is brilliant. Wine and beer are a good quality and the choice of tapas extensive, especially if you like fish, one whole counter was simply full of... More

We remembered this restaurant which serves authentic Spanish fare at reasonable prices from a previous visit 8 years ago. We went back for lunch last spring and were not disappointed. The terrace was already packed when we got there so they opened some extra umbrellas for us. We ordered lots of half portions. They all were excellent but highly recommend... More
