Excellent food, wonderful service, a restaurant not to be missed if you want a special meal. Great wine list that doesn't break the bank. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

This restaurant has gained a good reputation on merit and you will not be disappointed. We have dined there several times and the meals have been consistently well prepared and well presented. Portions do not over face you. The menu is about right and covers...most tastes. The staff are very friendly, attentive without being intrusive . We particularly liked the steak, duck, and scallops. This is one of the better restaurants in Nerja but is not expensive.More

My husband and I went and had dinner yesterday. I can say that was the best restaurant from the others we tried in Nerja. Every dish was absolutely delicious, including wine and the prices were very good. Service was also excellent!

Superb restaurant, the quality & presentation of food was excellent. Manolo & Alicia made us feel very welcome. If you are looking for a special night out with Michelin quality cooking at very reasonable prices then this place is a must.

As a holiday-home owners in Nerja, we eat out regularly. Unico is our favourite restaurant and we eat here regularly. Why? * The food is wonderful, and always freshly cooked, from a small but perfectly balanced menu. Go for the foccacia or burata or scallops...to start. The duck, or sea bass or steak are just fantastic. * Alicia the owner is delightful, always warm & welcoming to everyone that comes in. * Manu is a great wine waiter, and now brings our favourite wine before we even ask for it. * Alex the chef will often come out at the end of the night to chat. He's passionate about his food. Most nights the majority of diners are returning customers and that speaks volumes. The love and care that Alex & Alicia put into their restaurant shines through. So, all I can say is book a table you wont be disappointed.More

Decided to try Unico having read good reports. It was spot on, my Prawn starter was wonderful, my husbands scallop also excellent. Both had steak which melted in your mouth. We had booked the day before, all tables were reserved when we walked in. We...booked to go back for our last night of hols meal. Excellent restaurant, very well priced for the quality.More

Always come here when we visit and have never been disappointed. We are welcomed like old friends and it was so good to be back again . Food is fantastic service superb and we always sit inside it’s such a lovely vibe so don’t worry...if you can’t get a seat outdoors. Duck and steak were delicious and you must have the carpaccio or goats cheese salad !More

Myself and my husband had a very nice dinner in Unico, run by a husband and wife team that are clearly passionate about their restaurant and the service is particularly good - well spaced tables, good wine selection, highlight of the meal was Scallops starter...which was extremely good. Looking forward to returning when we get back to Nerja in two weeks.More
