Great local tapas

The tapas is range is small, but fresh and tasty. Variations on manchego and serrano ham, but hey, that's a good thing. Lovely little canapes and a mouthwatering tomato salad that was simple and elegant. The atmosphere was relaxing and welcoming with friendly service. A guitarist popped in and... read more

We stumbled upon this quaint little bar one evening on our way back to our hotel and stopped off for a night cap. We enjoyed the atmosphere so much we went back the following evening. There is a limited tapas menu which are freshly prepared and they're so good. We opted for serrano ham and manchego cheese and a plate... More

If you are in Nerja, visit this little gem! Owned and run by a lovely and extremely friendly Dutch couple who makes the atmosphere warm and welcoming. This is a place to go to for something little, a little plate of jamón or some spanish cheese together with a glass of something tasty, chill and enjoy some good old fashioned... More

This is a tiny place which is extremely popular and one visit will explain why. We have been coming here for a number of years for a relaxing evening snack of a bottle of wine and a couple of 'rations' of food to share. Everything is prepared freshly to order and served by extremely pleasant staff. A 'must have' is... More

But it's quite small so you have to be lucky to get a table, there's a little space at the bar where you can wait and the staff can sometimes judge if a table is going to come free. No formal dining, just a huge beer menu, excellent wine and a limited selection of great quality tapas, the sliced ham... More

This is a really pretty tiny restaurant. Gorgeous tapas are made while you wait. Get here early as it is tiny and only a few seats. GreT place to watch the world go buy and while sipping Rioja! I have been here mant times and never disappointed!
