“Amazing”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

What can I say. The bosses parents have been going for some years, and I have joined them for two. Rafa, the owner, remembers us every year, and it really makes the visit worthwhile, especially when he calls her dad "la Capitalista" as he is the one who pays at the bar, (even though we pay him.)
The tapas is rustic, and some nights you can smell the cheese as you walk in! The Tinto is good value, and the travelling musicians always seem to end their travels there, they are amazing. Some nights they have the most wonderful guitarist with them, when he is not there, they may take the singer, what a voice he has.
A cheap, entertaining night is assured.

“Exciting, good value (cheap) and tasty!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

This place is fun, authentic and really good value. Good wine at 1.50 euro. We were recommended this place by a couple in the hotel. It gets busy but it only adds to the atmosphere, when I say busy it's still laid back. The best thing is you get to flambé your own chorizo in a terrocotta pig. The staff are lovely, funny & friendly. Great for a snack or a cheap tea. It's a must if you're in Nerja.

“superb experience”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We spent 6 nights in Nerja last week and went to Los barriles 3 times. Every night was excellent, with a great atmosphere and superb tapas, which are mainly free, when you buy a drink. The bar staff were very friendly, and a trio of musicians entertained each night.

“We always come back here”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

OK it` not "upmarket" but who cares. Atmospheric bar with great atmosphere and superb service..Good wine at cheap prices and free tapas. The owner remembers you and what you drink even if you only go once a year. Do not miss out on this place even if you only go once

“Great all round restaurant”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Sort of place you would find mentioned in a novel. . you have to try the pig on fire! Friendly people, good location and atmosphere, good food and good price. The sangria is really good also. And the meat is nicely done. . go early or there will be a line on weekends.
