Had dinner here on 5 June 2019. Hadn't been before. Excellent food. Service a bit slow, and though we didn't complain we were given a free bottle of wine to make up for it. Would definitely return.

We had tasty tapas here - very generous portions although we did wait a while to be served. Would recommend the octopus. It's away from the main restaurant area and was full of locals.

We always try to have a meal in La Puntilla when visiting Nerja (alternating with Bar Dolores/El Chispa on the same street) because it is good value, lively, and with a good reliable range, mostly fish. Shared portions of several items are recommended, otherwise you...More

In this bar/restaurant we found the best Tapas in Nerja. All on offer were in line with their original formula. Boccerones, pulpo and gambas were fresh and the sauces heaven for my senses. My spouse appreciated the jamon (ham). Best you go to the bar...More
