We had seafood here for dinner this July..... Man it was so yum. The quantity they serve is also quite good compared to the price. The place was very busy, but the service was very prompt.

Seafood is fantastic and with each drink you get free tapas which could consist of mussels, prawns, etc. Gets very busy but service is very quick and efficient.

Went here on a few occasions, always very very busy, small tapas served in the front bar, larger portions to the rear. Grilled squid is a must. In the front part of the restaurant a tapas comes free with a beer/wine!.

Sit in the front part pref at the counter do you can savour the atmosphere & watch the fish sizzling on the plancha. You will not believe the standard of tapa's & your bill at the end! However prepare for bright lights & lots of noise... Hey you are in Spain! 🙀😎

We had a lot of fun at this restaurant, sitting in the outdoor area at the back, joking with the staff and enjoying good food. All three kids enjoyed their food and us adults too - it was well worth the pricetag.

I was initially put off eating here as the restaurant was set out like a large cafe on a cross channel ferry! However the food was excellent, the service efficient and friendly with a manageress who was attentive to customers and employees! The only disappointment was that they did not serve coffee at the end of the meal.

This place is a must if you ever visit Nerja always busy and only a few seats but still great. The carpet clams in white wine and garlic are a must. Oh and if you buy a drink you get a free tapas so what's not to like. A popular place with locals and there is seating at the back... More

Visited this place after recommendation from hotel but were unhappy with the hurried service.Very noisy,staff running around tried to take my plate away twice while my husband was still eating.Food was okay nothing to shout about, the tapas section at the front was very popular would not return to the restaurant plenty of other unhurried restaurants in Nerja.
