“Bijou, great food, got to book”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Chef Jose and waitress Victoria manage to present great wining and dining at this little venue, but you need to book. It is popular with both locals and returning holidayers. We got in on a Sunday, the Saturday had fully booked long ago. A reasonable time between order and the arrival of four starters and later the main course, was well worth it. The lone chef prepared everything carefully, all our dishes were good and tasty. This is in my top four in the town.

“Simplistic but superb food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

We have been coming to Nerja for the last 5 years and sometimes twice a year.
No visit is complete without a visit to our favourite restaurant in Nerja Meson Jose y Victoria. It's family run and all food is cooked from fresh as ordered by the owner Jose. We can recommend the chicken and the fish skewer which is accompanied by a wonderful potato side
Made with fried onions!
Anything you have to eat here is so wonderfully fresh and cooked to perfection. This is a small Spanish restaurant so you need to book early!!
The prices are very reasonable, considering you have free tapas before your main meal!
Oh and one more thing my wife thinks I'm mad even allowing trip advisor into our secret. She thinks there will be so many
Customers in the future when they read this review, that we will have a job even making a reservation!!

“Reservation a must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

To be blunt, make a reservation! Not a negative word to say but if you don't reserve a table you could miss out on this jewel of a traditional resturant in a busy tourist town.
Everything was fantastic! Our only drawback was our own lack of the Spanish language, which did result in an amusing attempt at sign language to converse with the owners.
Don't miss out, make your reservation as soon as you get to Nerja!

“A Nerja institution”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

Nerja wouldn't be Nerja without this tiny restaurant serving up delicious freshly prepared food. Dinner won't come quickly even If you have booked a table but when it arrives your food will have been worth the wait. Everything is freshly prepared by Jose in the tiny kitchen and is tasty and plentiful.

“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!!
