Visited several times during our stay including to watch 2 of the Rugby Autumn Internationals. The bar is kept very clean and has lovely friendly staff. You can print your passenger locator forms and boarding passes here for a small fee.

Just returned from a week's holiday in Nerja and visited this bar twice. Very friendly bar and bar snacks were very tasty. Loved the quirkiness of the bar, would recommend.

This was a great favourite of our last visit to Nerja. The burger special gave you the most tasty burger, chips and wine/beer for 9 euro!! The food was delicious, the drinks devine but above all the welcome you get from the staff is second...to none. The music and pool table provides entertainment for everyone big or small. The decor is fab, the pub is the most comfy and beautifully decorated with the coolest , funky vibe. The ladies are extremely welcoming to families and we will be returning!!!More

Discovered this spot on the third night of our holiday and our biggest disappointment is that we didn't find it sooner. Came back every night after. Great atmosphere. The friendliest of staff. Good drinks and lots of comfy places to sit and chat. The background...music really hit the spot. We even tried our hand at a few games of pool. We'll definitely be back!More

The bar is on los Huertos. If you head to the tourism office you can get a street map though your hotel may have them. It's not difficult to find
