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.

My husband and I were looking forward to an evening meal here since this restaurant has so many good reviews. We were unfortunate to have our worst but most expensive meal here throughout our two week stay in Nerja. My husband's starter of prawns was ok, my prawn cocktail was a bowl of dry lettuce, some overcooked prawns smothered in... More

Been to this bar on numerous occasions over the last two years and as far as bars go, this one is my favourite in Nerja. My wife and I have been fortunate over the last 15 years to have been able to travel throughout Spain and El Pulguilla is as authentic as it gets. There is a buzz from the... More

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!
