“Great spot off the beaten path!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

We found this place on TripAdvisor and weren't disappointed. The food was much better than in the touristy areas. We were the only tourists in the place! Be sure to order their namesake dish. Can't be missed!

“Typical Spanish tapas bar”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

A traditional tapas restaurant, located outside Nerja city centre. Lots of locals, so you get the real feel of Spain.

“Tapas Trail”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Tucked away in a back street and lots of locals gather here every day.
Maybe not for a romantic meal but definitely a must on the tapas trail.
Good quality wine. Tapas are free with beer or wine.
Tapas all fresh and cooked on the hot plate - cod, baby squid, pork fillet, pork kebabs.
Lovely prawns pil-pil if you ask for a ration.
Staff very efficient and friendly - one of our favourites.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Went here based on reviews previously posted but we were disappointed by the location and also the food. It took a long time to find and when we reached it the street location was a bit shabby with very ordinary tables etc outside. It was quite busy, usually a good sign for Spanish bars etc, but the menu was standard fare only with nothing particularly tempting. We ordered and spoke with the owner who seemed pleasant although was somewhat upset when he saw his TA rating was not in the top twenty places in Nerja! Service was good and the food was well cooked and ok. After words such as 'amazing' and 'fantastic' this was a disappointing experience.
