I had booked a table for lunch today. However they called me and were very sorry that they had to cancel my booking because the chef was ill. When we came by the restaurant around the time of my booking they had a sign on...the door that they were closed due to a private party.More

I love this place and the majestic views from every angle..It is well maintained and is a must to see when in this end of Nerja. However I was disappointed to see there was a small gathering of locks beginning on a few points around...which could deter from the elegance of this amazing place.More

The restaurant offer good seating, have a nice atmosphere, and the most polite waiter. We had spotted the vegetarian paella on the menu, and did want to try it. Wine selection was good and not expensive.

Having read some of the other reviews looking for paella, we decided to try Rey Alfonso and so glad we did. On entry we asked if it was ok to have the paella without pre booking as we had experienced this before. The waiter said...we could but it would be an hour to prepare, this was fine for us and it was so worth the wait. There was only one person serving but he was excellent and made us feel very welcome. The starters we good but when the paella arrived, it was truly amazing and I don’t think anymore seafood could possibly have fitted into the pan! So if your looking for great food and hospitality this is your place for paella.More

Situated under the Balcón de Europa with panoramic views and a quiet atmosphere . We had the best seafood paella out of several tried this holiday. Sole and steak were very tasty too . Polite and attentive service and moderate prices. Can’t beat the location....More

It’s hard to find, but when you do it’s beautiful inside with an even better view. The staff is kind and works hard. We had the fish paella with Verdejo rueda wine and it cost us 46€ for two persons, definitely worth it.

We had a delicious evening meal here last Saturday night. The waiter was an absolute gentleman and very helpful. The meal was so reasonably priced considering the unique setting. We had freshly made (worth the wait) paella, the pork main dish and expertly cooked steaks....We cannot understand why it was so quiet. Do not miss out. It's a hidden gem.More
