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.

We love this little bar with their seating on the street. Great place to sit and have one or twenty glasses of wine! It is so chilled that you find yourself ordering a second bottle or as in our case a third bottle... the service is very friendly and their tapas are great.. the big plate of tomatoes is divine...

This is a great place to chill out and sample some different beers. If you have had enough of drinking lager, then this is the place to come - the menu has several different Belgian beers well worth sampling and the owners are very friendly. The music is also very relaxing. Don't miss this place!

This bar is the nicest, friendliest place you will find. The tapas are superb, wines excellent topped off with a coffee and good big brandy. We have been going to paulina esquina for many years and unlike many places, the service, welcome, value and food never let you down. It's like United Nations some evenings, Paulina and Luka speak so... More
