Paulina's is the first place I want to visit when I'm on holiday in Nerja. It's good to read how much other reviewers like it, too. You are lucky if you get an outside table, as it's always busy. Once I get a seat I don't want to leave. The sangria is lovely, and there is a good choice of... More

My wife and I visited this bar a couple of times for wine and a sharing platter. As it was August Nerja was extremly busy so we enjoyed grabbing a seat , sharing some wine and watching the crowds pass by. It was small and hot inside but had a nice atmosphere. The wine and mojitos were very good.

I read really good reviews about this small bar/restaurant so decided to give it a try. We walked by several times over the course of the holiday to find it full until one evening we dropped on a free table outside on the street. Many reviews say you are offered complimentary tapas, we was not, so we ordered a sharing... More

We ended up here at the end of each evening, and sat at one of the small tables outside, people watching. The wine is excellent, and is often served with olives or nuts etc. The customers come from all corners of the globe, and are very friendly, as are the staff.

This is a quirky bar in a back street which we came across on a short cut to our hotel. Enjoyed sitting outside having a quiet drink people watching.It always seemed busy so that says it all.

My wife’s friends had recommended this bar, and it has great reviews from TA but it didn’t quiet float our boat. We were lucky enough to get a seat outside early one evening and for me that was a prerequisite because it was stiflingly hot inside. It occupies a very cosy position in a small alley and, partially because it... More

Staff are lovely, very friendly, you are lucky if you get a seat, this place is always busy, we had the mixed Spanish meats and the mixed starter, it was all really nice with great wine. You can easily while away a couple of hours sat here.

Bar Esquina Paulina looks the part from the outside as you walk past and it is very cosy inside as well. It always seems busy, which is a good sign, and this is probably because it is a friendly and inexpensive bar with good tapas

We have visited here twice on consecutive late evenings. Again following a ta recommendation. Wonderful setting and lovely staff. I have not eaten here yet but intend to. The menu is tapas based and looks simply wonderfull. They advertise a coffee and large brandy which we have partaken of on both our visits. The brandy comes in a large brandy... More

Situated on a narrow street in the central part of Nerja's old town, this is a great small tapas bar. Try the smoked salmon or the Spanish ham. Friendly service and inexpensive.
