Me and my girlfriend are both in our mid 20's and visited here twice on our week long holiday. I had read about it on tripadvisor and went with an open mind. The first thing you notice about this place is the tables outside, really nice touch the way you can sit out in the street and its quite a... 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!

Lovely bar with a nice atmosphere, busy and with a vibe for couples and friends old and young. Try a gin and tonic.... Comes in a large Brady glass .... A must. We went on a Friday and Saturday evening for drinks served with a smile by great staff and the usual small tapas comes with drinks. The bar has... More

Strolled up to our favourite bar on Halloween night for a quick drink. Three bottles of wine plus two large special brandy's with coffee and chocolate later we left. Tapas is lovely. We had shared plates of smoked salmon, mixed Spanish meats and cheese. The owner is such a pleasant easy going guy. Great location for people watching plus all... More

Friendly atmosphere and good drinks and its like being in Paris ... good place to watch people. The cheese and Pata Negra is excellent and we have this as a waterhole on our way down town. The server is always nice and friendly does a perfect job

After reading other reviews we decided to stop here for a drink before going home. 3 drinks later we didn't want to leave. The staff are very nice, the Rum & Cokes are a must, the rum they give you as standard must be a double if not more and comes in a large brandy type glass filled with ice.... More

Nothing much to add,it's all been said by previous reviewers good wine ham and cheese. An excellent venue for a pre dinner drink or alight snack and a great place to finish off the evening with a coffee and a brandy

My husband and I randomly stumbled upon Paulina's when we were in Nerja a few years ago and knew we wanted to visit again the next time we were back. The atmosphere is great - whether you are sitting inside or people watching outside - the wines are fantastic, great selection of meats and cheeses and its so cheap! Definitely... More

A really beautiful little bar and very good tapas coming out of the kitchen! Sadly we had already eaten so only had a drink, but will be back to try next time. We know people who regularly come here and they rate it very highly.
