“Struggling to establish in Torrox”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

This restaurant/tapas bar has moved from Nerja to Torrox and while it is nice to see another choice in the village I think the owners must be regretting the move. It is ideally located in the main Plaza but the offerings for both tapas and restaurant menu are at best, variable.
Torrox has good tapas bars and El Desevan is just not up to standard.
Use it only as a last resort.

“Small Tapas Bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Visited this small tapas bar earlier today. Good menu offering quite varied tapas. Service was quick and the food was quite good although the monkfish dish was slightly undercooked and two of the dishes were quite oily. Overall the price was reasonable 21 euros for 6 tapas, a small beer and a wine.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

Based on reviews, we ate at El Desvan and found it disappointing. The food was not very good and the seating was horribly uncomfortable. There were no other people eating there. There are many wonderful restaurants in Nerja but this is not one of them.
