Fantastic quality food and a quality environment. The tarde de cebolla is outstanding and I have loved every main course.

On the square next to the old church (17th century). No menu del dia but the food is great. The restaurant salad at Euro 7.50 has langostinos, crab and tuna with very good salad. The main courses are all very good - we've eaten here about 10 times. Service very good for a busy place. Relax on the square in... More

Visited one day and had a glass of wine in the courtyard then booked for the next evening. We were two couples and tried the sea bass and my husband the swordfish - both main courses were cooked to perfection. Service was excellent and glad we did not order starters as main course so filling. Will definitely return. The night... More

I had the best local lamb roasted to perfection. I always try local land and had a few (!) in Spain but this was juicy! My wife had a local fish split in 2 with toppings ! Will have to go back!

Each time my wife and I visit neighbouring Nerja, we make sure we eat at least once at La Taberna del Sacristan. Usually following a visit to the lovely church overlooking the adjacent square, we get there in time to find a table in the best spot to enjoy an al fresco meal. In doing so, the scene is set...

This is a lovely restaurant in front of the church. The food is really good with numerous meat and fish choices. It is a bit more pricey than some of the other restaurants we go to more frequently but it is always worth a visit as a treat on at least one night of your holiday. A nice wine menu... More

What a beautiful setting in a lovely square where the church is lit up at night and you sit outside enjoying the lovely ambiance. We went here 3 times in 10 days and could not recommend this place highly enough. I cannot eat shellfish and the steps the staff went to in accommodating my preferences were truly exceptional, there is... More

We love coming here to eat - every time we visit Spain. The food good quality and prices low. The staff are lovely and friendly - but - the setting is PERFECT. Sitting outside, watching the Spanish señoras go to church, Senores sitting watching them go and the locals just doing 'family' - all adds up to make a wonderful... More

As a regular guest at La Taberna del Sacristan I saw that the opening hours mentioned here on tripadvisor are not correct. La Taberna del Sacristan opens every day from 10.00 to 16.00 h and from 19.00 to 24.00 h except Tuesdays, when they have a rest. Now that I`m here I can only repeat my previous review. Excellent food... More
