This family run restaurant focuses on a genuine food offer together with a wide selection of wines from all over the world. We space from salads and homemade burgers at lunchtime, to the juicy sea-bream fillet and tender beef eye fillet at dinnertime. Our Italian chef also recommends our pasta dishes. We like to close the night with our signature gin&tonic: Nordes gin with camomile and ginger!!

Ate here twice as it was so good - great location and fantastic staff. The rib eye steak was superb quality and cooked to perfection as were all the other dishes we had. I would book a table as there were numerous people turned away...both times we went. The last time we went it got a bit chilly around 9.30pm and the waited kindly provided a blanket also gin cocktails fab. Will definitely return.More

We ate here one evening as a group of 6. The food was so good we nipped in a couple of lunch times later as a 3 and enjoyed it again! The setting is lovely on the edge of the sea and a busy promenade...so you can watch people passing. The food was excellent both times good value and superb service. Beware though some of the dishes (Crostine La Bottega) are massive and can easily feed 2 or 3. Delicious though.More

It was a joy to return to our favourite restaurant in Nerja. As always, Enzo, Lucia and the team made us so welcome. Indeed, we had been passing a few days earlier to make our reservation, and Enzo invited us in to have a drink...and a chat . It has been , a tough time for them during the pandemic, like it has for so many. However, once again customers are returning to Nerja and in particular La Bottega. The restaurant has expanded since our last visit, yet has lost none of its charm. The food, service and ambience were outstanding. La Bottega continues to be the Jewel in the Crown when it comes to dinning in Nerja. Naturally it’s always busy, so book early to avoid disappointment. Thank you again, we will be back soon!More

Excellent experience! The food was absolutely delicious. We had the rib-eye steak and the chicken caesar salad which we both loved. The service was absolutely spot on and the ambience was super. We will be back!

We visited La Bottega for our 40th anniversary, based on the positive reviews we had seen. We were welcomed with a complimentary glass of cava, which set the tone for a great evening. We had the pil pil prawns and calamari to start and both...dishes were excellent and plentiful. We followed this with the Argentinian rib eye and salmon fillet pasta cooked to our taste. We washed this down with a palatable house white (and a glass of red recommended by the waiter to go with my steak which was delicious and worth the extra). The staff were very friendly and well informed regarding the food and wines, and very attentive. All in all a great evening, thank you la bottega for making our evening special. We would recommend booking in advance as there were always queues when we walked by.More
