Fantastic tapas bar in the centre of Nerja. Been going here for over 10 years and it's still as good as ever. Very bright bar, usually very busy (90% spanish), tapas on display as usual on the bar, although El Pulguilla really does focus on fresh fish and shellfish, all cooked on a large hotplate. Usually the choices include Cod... More

Sqeezed into this very busy place on a sunday night for drinks and tapas. Difficult to find anywhere to sit and had to stand at the bar for a while but managed to get a table eventually. Very frenetic but service was suprisingly quick considering how busy it was. Had 4 rounds of drinks with free tapas with each round.... More

Great seafood and tapas and you can see why all the locals gather here. Always lively particularly when a big match from La Liga is on the TV. Well worth a visit,

Specialises in seafood which they do well. Very popular with local Spanish especially at weekends. Wine and tapas consistent but not much change in the varieties offered.

We regularly visit Nerja and always visit El Pulguilla. Super tapas choice always superbly cooked to order. If you only visit one tapas bar in centre of Nerja, this should be it !

Our favourite bar/restaurant in Nerja fab meat or seafood tapas free with every drink but also a great menu as well. Try the prawns in batter and the pork fillet off the menu, delicious you will go to this place more than once!!!!

Went for tapas for lunch on a saturday. This is a noisy and very busy restaurant but in a good way. Mostly locals enjoying the weekend which we see as a plus. And we were not disappointed. Very quick service. Great and honest tapas. Reasonably priced. Really a must in Nerja to try out.

Passed this a few times on our nights out in Nerja but never went in as it was always so busy. Decided to do a tapas trail one afternoon and when we passed this place it was a bit quieter so decided to pop in - what a good move that was! It was still busy but we found a... More

Lighting is terrible, seats are uncomfortable but it is fun and good value for money. Full of both locals and tourists. Good atmosphere and a fun place to watch a football match between any British and Spanish team! With every drink you get a tapa - and all are freshly cooked.
