“Meson Jose y Victoria Nerja Spain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We have just returned from Nerja and it's 15 years since we were first there and 10 years staying in the same apartment above this lovely Spanish restaurant. We love it here and the choice to eat simply or have some of the dishes mentioned in other reviews is what we like about it. Also the friendly atomosphere and the sheer hard work of Jose and Victoria is something to be admired. We are always made welcome and greeted as if we are indeed friends as well as customers. Next year back again to magical Nerja and a warm welcome at Meson Jose y Victoria!!

“Dinne was great, launch - not their speciality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

A very nice and welcoming house and the owners are very-very friendly.
Dinner specialities are something to return to - really recommended. The way the cook squid is now my benchmark for this food. And fish in orange juice was very good as well.
However for lunch there's nothing special at all - same salads with the same strange mayonnaise-like souce, etc...
Anyway - highly recommended for dinner!

“great family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Have been going to Nerja for many years,have always used this restraurant.Jose & Victoria are lovely people ,they work very hard.The food is always excellent.You may have to wait awhile for your food but it is worth waiting for and is always fresh as Jose cooks everything to order on his own ,he has only got a tiny kitchen.Victoria works hard waiting on the tables,her English is very limited as is my Spanish but we manage to communicate and get everything we want.Cant wait to go back in four weeks time to visit this great family.

“Excellent & really fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

We ate here on the first night of our holiday and made the mistake of not making a reservation so needed to wait 25-30 minutes for a table outside to come free (our fault for not booking first). This is a very traditional Spanish restaurant with very little english spoken by the couple who run the restaurant. However, the menu is also in English, so no problems in ordering. Our main course wasa whole squid which was cooked to perfection. all the food was really fresh and we had a great evening and was the best start we could expect to our holiday
