I surprise myself every time I visit Nerja. Another great bar with the friendliness staff and great great music. Clean, great value and loads of spotting memorabilia. A real Sheffield Wednesday pub with photos of all the greats. Mark, one of the barmen was friendly,...helpful and happy. Thanks from the Big Irish family who visited last week.More

My go-to bar in Nerja for the last 35 years! Good beer, good service, good atmosphere. Always a happy welcome when I return and the best place to watch any major sport, particularly football. While I was there the bar opened on the Saturday for...England v Australia rugby too. Generally no food but usually something available on weekends. In the absence of sport, the owner Brian has a wide ranging selection of music video playlists, something for everyone.More

Visited Nerja for a 50th Birthday. Spent time at Bar El Bosque. Always a friendly welcome and atmosphere. Guaranteed an ice cold beer each time. Great for sport but music also. Brian has excellent taste in music which is an added bonus. We will be...back again! Thank you for great evening holiday entertainment.More

Just back from a week in Nerja and visited here 3 times.Lovely comfortable inside bar but the outside seating area is more relaxing and lovely for people watching.Glass of wine for 2 euro is great value and they serve very generous measures of spirits.

Nice bar to escape the summer sun and enjoy a few beers. Owner was friendly, beer was ice cold and loads of football to choose from. Seemed to be popular with the ex pat community and always a good atmosphere when we were in.

Brian & the team are so friendly, it was like a home from home. The hubby was happy because they had multiple TV screens showing every sporting event. My 14 year old daughter & I were happy because there were other families there to interact...with. The sun terrace was nice & hot, whilst inside was lovely & cool.More
