This bar is ALWAYS busy!. Run by Belgians, it is always a hive of activity. A very popular bar and has a good ambience. A pleasant bar to have a drink on the go. Serves tapas , but not really a eating place. Always made welcome, but I feel this is primarily a drinks bar.

A really nice place to stop for a drink or a good selection of Belgium beer. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere, attentive and lovely staff and a great place to sit and watch the world go by. Nice and reasonably priced tapas and and the friendly service would definitely make us return for another relaxed afternoon.

However, we ordered three dishes of Spanish ham, tomatoes and bread and then ordered three more as we were really impressed with the first lot. The menu is very limited but the food is simple, good food done well. It's all cold cuts and salad... More

We often called in to Paulina as we wandered into the town centre - if we were lucky enough to get a seat! It's no wonder it's such a popular place as it serves a fantastic range of local and imported beers at reasonable prices. The staff are very welcoming and provide a bowl of nibbles with your drink.

We visit this bar every night after dinner in nerja, sit on the outside chairs in the little street and watch the world go by! 5euro brandy and coffee nice way to end the evening and the little chocolate selection they bring is a nice touch!

Very small and very busy bar with lovely tapas and a good selection of beers. Owner and staff very friendly and although our first time there it was obvious that there were many "regulars "
