One of the best tapas in Nerja! Very good wine and larger sized portions of tapas, tortilla, prawns, mussels, meatballs, fish, salad dishes, cheese and ham to name a few and the staff are really lovely, they even remember you from your last visit! A must on your Nerja tapas trail if you visit!! Try the restaurant too they have very good priced set menus to choose from all under 10 euros!!

We recently visited Nerja and went back to this little restaurant. The food was so good that we ate there every evening (and 2 lunchtimes).
The main courses are so substantial that starters are just not necessary- if you like more, smaller courses then the 3 course menu del dia at 8.95 euros is fantastic value for money. Great food, great service, great ambiance all at a very reasonable price.

We ate here three times during our Christmas week in Nerja. Twice sat outside for lunchtime tapas/raciones - all so fresh and delicious, thoroughly recommend the grilled prawns, the meatballs, the pork, the mixed fried fish, the mixed salad and patatas bravas... all generous portions and so good!

We liked the food and the service so much that we ate dinner there on Christmas Day too. Two of us had massive lamb shanks and my sister had the duck - we all enjoyed every mouthful, the only possible criticism could be that the portions are just too huge!

The service was at all times warm, friendly and efficient but without being intrusive - perhaps some people want more attention (hence some negative reviews) but we found it just right. We felt on all three occasions that we could sit there for as long as we liked and I will certainly be returning here in February on a solo trip, as I feel sure I will feel at ease dining alone there.

We have just left the El Meson de Julio and I cannot agree with any of the negative reviews that have been posted.
The gentleman serving us, could not have been more polite, attentive and helpful.
The restaurant and facilities are immaculately clean and the food is superb.
Our only problem was the size of the portions, they were huge (American size), but perfectly cooked and delicious.
We will return on our next visit to Nerja.
