Here you will eat fine. It's a place where we have clients but also friends, like a real family, here in Nerja, the Costa del Sol's Paradise !!!

“Relaxed atmosphere and right off Torrecilla”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Dined here for dinner and was not disappointed. The waitresses were friendly and observant. The portions were large and at a reasonable price. I had the mixed meat kebab with accompaniments- found that a few pieces of meat were dry. However, dessert was fantastic- muerte por chocolate was wonderful. The evening was relaxing out on the patio and you could hear the ocean waves. Overall, my husband and I really enjoyed ourselves!

“Simply the Best!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Do not visit Nerja without eating here. This is by far one of the best restaurants around. The food never fails to be anything but superb, huge portions and great prices. The staff are friendly and the location perfect. You will not be disappointed!!!!

“Wow”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

First of all, the setting of this restaurant is beautiful as it's next to the sea so the view is lovely. The food was absolutely to die for! It was presented gorgeously, smelled great and tasted even better! The price is very affordable and we were surprised at how cheap it was when bill came! Definitely our favourite restaurant in nerja!

“We visited twice”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

We have visited here in October 2013 and were really impressed by the food. Whilst staying in Nerja in June 2014 my partner and I visited twice and other members of our party visited multiple times too.
Gambas (Langoustines) and spicy guacamole (starter) was fresh and very filling.
Fillet steak was cooked to perfection, peppered sauce and sides were nice too.
Pork tenderloin stroganoff was very tasty and melted in the mouth.
Staff very attentive. As a couple we had no bother getting a table but for tables of 5 or more it might be worth popping in earlier in the day and reserving a table. We very rarely revisit a place whilst away but Maria Bonita was too good to only visit once.

“No better meal in Nerja”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

We dined here on 4 separate nights during our recent stay in Nerja and each meal made it into our "Top 5 " , not bad out of 15 nights . The meals were lovely in terms of quality , presentation and variety of menu . Portions were huge , with one starter to share between two being more than enough . Prices were reasonable , Owners and waiting staff were very friendly , efficient without being obtrusive and seemed to genuinely appreciate our custom . Definitely worth a visit (or 4 ! )
