“A local joint in a town full of tourists”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

I hated the look of most of what Nerja had to offer but Los Barillos had the feel of somewhere in a rural Spanish town a million miles away from the tourist throng of the Costa Del Sol.
It opened at a random time between 7:30 & 8 and was immediately swamped by locals and a few curious tourists. It's not got the most extensive menu in the world and if you're a vegetarian it's probably not your sort of place but if you like meat and particularly chorizo then you'll love it.

“Nice, authentic 'Spit and Sawdust' bar”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Just off the main tourist drag in Nerja. Cellar like bar offering good wine, beer and basic tapas at a very reasonable price. Friendly management. A veggie or fish tapas option would be nice... Rough and ready but enjoyable place , Nerja needs more options like this!

“Local Spanish style bar”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

This is a rustic, friendly bar serving local wines and sherries, accompanying them with tapas dishes prepared in a tiny alcove off the bar. The owner is friendly and communicates in a form of Spanlish understood and employed by all. Thoroughly recommend a drink or two, you must try a blazing pig!

“Very authentic spot”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Love the mix of tourists and locals. Has its unique charm that keeps me returning. It's not luxurious or plush more rugged and basic but the tapas, wine and friendly welcome is great.

“Great tapas bar & excellent red wine”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

This is a great little bar in a good location which you would easily just walk past if you didn't know it was there, it's a very simple, old bar and the hospitality received is brilliant. The tapas they give you is really good quality and very tasty. In the summer months however, you do need to get in there early as it gets very busy but it's not too bad early on in the season. It would be a shame if you did not visit Los Barillos whilst in Nerja.
