Absolutely perfect

My boyfriend and I had been looking for a place exactly like this our entire vacation. We found it while walking around Nerja late on a Tuesday evening and it was one of the only places that was bustling. The tomato salad is perfectly refreshing and went great with the manchego and ham plate. We... read more

We've grown to really like Esquina Paulina and call in just about as often as we can get a table (it's size means it gets busy quickly). They serve a good range of hams and cheeses and the prices are reasonable. Sitting inside means you can observe the hectic action in the bar but the best place to be is... More

I was puzzled by the review earlier this month which criticised Paulinas as being a poor restaurant. It is not a restaurant at all and I would dispute that their drinks measures are small. In our experience, having visited many times over the years, the drinks are good quality and good value. The cold plates of serrano ham and/or cheese... More

Me and my partner visited this so called restaurant expecting big things.when we got there the drinks was a stingy size and the "cold tapas" was over priced!How this is classed as a restaurant is beyond me.

Excellent little bar in the middle of the town, but just outside the busiest and noisiest streets. Cozy and slightly bohemian atmosphere. Good service. Free snack with every drink. Delicious tapas on the menu. Flamenco guitarist playing live music in the evenings. We found ourselves coming back here for drinks night after night.

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 jammed for a while. We were offered a couple of shots... 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
