“Poor food, rude staff”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

I ahev re read other eveiws agaian adn again to see if we went to a diffnerent resatraunt but no.
Firstly the staff are rude and unhelpful, I know it was very busy but the waiter made us feel like we were just getting in the way and he couldn’t wait until the end of his shift.

I love tapas and have had some fantastic dishes in Spain and this is one of the worst traditional taps bars I've been to.

My wife ordered tomato salad to start, it was just tomatoes sliced, nothing else, no dressing, no basil, no other herbs, just a large plate of sliced tomato.

I had white bait, this had never been whitebait in a millions years, it was more like very fine grated fish in batter, and I am sure some bits were just batter as well, we had 2 other dishes, left most of the food and went home hungry.

Perhaps this was just an off day but we won’t be going back.

“Excellent food & atmosphere.”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Located in a more residential, back street area of Nerja. The food is excellent, the service is relaxed, but great - both of the waiters who served us had great personalities. We really felt like we were dining with the locals. The half portions were big for the price, and we were stuffed! The waiter did tell us we were ordering too much :). The sangria was the best we had. We thoroughly recommend finding La Puntilla! Great value for money, great service and excellent food.

“Small back street tapas bar with excellent food”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Small, authentic, efficient service, generous drinks and excellent food.

This restaurant is well worth a visit and the food is by far the best I had in Nerja.

“A Nerja classic”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

This is one of the most popular tapas bar and restaurants among the nerjeños themselves. Authentic,loud and excellent food. Fabulous El Pulguilla is run by the same people, but this is where it began. In the wonderful Old town and a little off the beaten tourist track.
