just got back from my annual fortnight in Nerja, feel compelled to share the most fantastic dining experience I have had in a long time.The confit of duck on sweet potato mash was beautiful as was my partners stake and ale pie. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for our host, try this bar you will not be dissapointed !

Were local and use JJs regularly also taking all our visitors,friends and family. We recommend it for full meals, snacks or breakfast. Try it, the food, staff, atmosphere,services, and prices combine to make it an experience you will want to repeat. Nothing is too much trouble and no matter what time of year the quality never varies.

We ate here twice over the week and everyone thoroughly enjoyed what they had. Portions were plentiful, service friendly and we will certainly go back when we next visit Nerja.

The word "best" is overused, however in this case Cafe del Mar's breakfast is the very best and nothing comes close in Nerja. It is a real pleasure to have a leisurely breakfast here whilst watching passers-by on Burriana Beach. Comfortable cushioned chairs and English newspapers available for customers to read. Service prompt, attentive and very friendly.

You can easily pay a couple of Euros less in other places. However, having eaten many breakfasts along the Costa del Sol and having so often encountered breakfasts where the sausages are the cheapest that can be sourced, mushrooms can be small button mushrooms from a tin, bacon is streaky Spanish bacon, plates are just warm (or even cold). Tea in some establishments can be a sad teabag floating in a cup of hot water etc etc. I would rather pay a touch more for an excellent breakfast instead of a just OK breakfast.

Here they use quality ingredients and the breakfasts are served on piping hot plates. The standard "Full English Breakfast" (served from 10.00 am until midday) costs €7.50 and comprises Back Bacon, Sausages, Tomato, Egg, Baked Beans, Mushrooms and Toast. Staff are willing to change content of breakfast composition to suit customer requests.

Smoked Salmon and scrambled egg served with toasted croute costs €6.75. Other options available (including Spanish breakfast).

Tea is served in china pots for €1.50 (English Breakfast or Earl Grey).

J.J.'s Cafe del Mar is also very well known for the quality of its lunches and dinners.
