“Very good restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

This restaurant has everything you want if you want to have an romantic evening, or just having fun with friends or family. The food is very good, and the staff are super friendly and service minded.
The owner has a great taste of wine, so if you want to have a good wine, just ask him for suggestions.
The reason I give this restaurant full score is because the Iberican Pork is the best I have ever tasted.

The only negative thing I can say is that you can be a little bit unlucky with the dessert you may order simply because this restaurant does not have the usual dishes.

“Juan knows best!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

What the restaurant lacks in atmosphere is more than made up by the quality of the food and the attention chef/owner Juan offers his guests. Juan offers quite firm direction on what he thinks you should be ordering - some may find it intimidating but I rather enjoyed being guided/corrected on my choices! The memory of an excellent suckling pig still lingers as well as the generous brandy that nicely finished the meal.

“Haute cuisine Spanish style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Excellent. Juan is a perfectionist, explains all the dishes. Introduces amuse bouche. A treat experience but one all should try. Juan is very proud of the excellent food he delivers.

“Again, outstanding !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

Sollun is a restaurant of the highest quality. Having been here last year we couldn't wait to return and it certainly wasn't a mere nostalgic memory ! Juan is an extremely inventive and talented chef who is without doubt serving food of Michelin star quality. His tasting menu is a joy for the tastebuds and the à la carte every bit as good ! The wines are handpicked and this care and attention to detail is what marks out Juan and Sollun from almost everything else in beautiful Nerja. Top, top class.

“Excellent Spanish a la carte cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

We have had several meals at this excellent restaurant. Juan - the cook/ owner- can recommend a perfect menu for a lovely tapas lunch or a special dinner- all from local seasonally available produce. We especially love the tartare of mackerel, scallops with black pudding, belly pork and slow cooked lamb. The fresh fish option is also fantastic. Can't recommend this restaurant highly enough for its food, friendliness and relaxed atmosphere.
