Usually the choices include Cod... 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!!!!
