What a lovely bar and restaurant La Joya is! Natalia’s welcome is always genuinely warm and the food and wine are excellent value for money. We especially enjoyed the home made burger and fries – but the whole menu is lovely you cannot decide what to have. Also 10 out of 10 for the House Rioja - it is as fine a wine as you would get anywhere. Natalia and Michael - We hope you enjoy continued success and can’t wait to come back next year.

Yes, they are a bit pricey. That being said the food is amazing, always fresh, never frozen! The organic burger is the best that I have had in Europe. It is huge and both buns are toasted and the meat is very flavorful and cooked perfectly. You do have to order your side separately, but the fries are hand cut and always crispy. They also cater for lactose intolerant, celiac and vegan diets and always have a vegetarian special on the menu. They are open for dinner and are closed on Wednesdays.

My partner and I ate here a few times while on our holiday in Nerja. The food, atmosphere and staff are fantastic in here. The home made hummus was very tasty, and the vegetarian burger with goats cheese was delicious. We finished our meals with a complimentary glass of honey rum which was a lovely way to end the evening. We would highly recommend this fabulous restaurant and are looking forward to returning next year.

We ate in this restaurant last week and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. One member of the party is vegatarian and just went for mixed pepper salad which was more than enough of a helping and very tasty. Two other members of the party, even though not vegetarian went for the moroccon mixed bean dish and the vegetarian burger, both of which were extremely tasty. And the third member went for fish also very tasty but just not enough as these dishes are not served with sides so these have to be ordered seperately. Even though it was priced slightly higher than some other restaurants you definately "get way you pay for" as regards quality. Our only regret was not returning for another meal before the end of the holiday as we were disappointed in the restaurant we ate in on our final night. We would definately return to this restaurant on our next visit and would highly recommend it. Staff very pleasant, atmosphere very nice and complimentary drink was of your choice - not like in other restaurants where you're offered the standard liquor!
