El Pulguilla was recommended to us by a family we met in Nerja and we were glad they did. We sat out on the terrace and although it was a little windy, blowing all the table cloths about, the staff never stopped running around trying to secure them in place. We were actually the first customers on Friday night, but... More

Fantastically fresh seafood. Have a drink at the bar, point to your seafood of choice, watch them pop it on the grill for you, and tuck into the simple but delicious tapa. When you ask for your bill and realize you are only charged for drink, you resolve to return the next day.

Pulgilla is always a 'must stop' on our Tapas trails. Don't be put off by the decor. it's unlike your usual 'classic' Spanish bar being brightly lit with steel topped counters to stand around or eat on and acoustics that made the place always sound loud. On any evening you will find the place full of Spaniards, meaning it definitely... More
