Have eaten here again in September and Octobe2011 as it is our personal favourite and the one to which we always take guests and business colleagues. It never fails to impress. The food continues to be of the higest standard, a culinary delight , tantalising tastes, beautifully presented. As the best local produce is used there are occassions when items "off menue" are available. Service is attentive but unobtrusive. Wine list is impressive too and not overpriced. Standards are consistently high.
This smal restaurant is so refreshingly different to the "run of the mill establishments "generaly found in tourist towns. Juan the Owner/Chef is genuinely passionate about food and this is evident from the moment you enter. Do not be put off by its location or simplicity of its decor. Sollun is the " hidden gem" in Nerja. The food merits a Michelin Star. This remains the only place in Nerja and the surrounding area for lovers of fine dining.

Very good food with a lot of interesting twists. Interesting wine list too. As a purely personal preference we sat inside because the tables outside are in a fairly narrow pedestrianised street. This had the advantage that the chef/proprietor kept popping out of the kitchen to discuss the food and drink which meant service wasn't too speedy but added to the overall experience. His wife who waitresses was charming too. The amuse bouches at the beginning and complementary liquers at the end were nice touches as well. Definitely somewhere we'll return to.

This small restaurant has a brilliant atmosphere - it's like a private dining room with your own personal gourmet chef on hand. The quality of the raw ingredients is fabulous whether the loin of lamb, the swordfish or the fresh sprouting vegetables. And then the chef creates something totally unexpected in almost every case and none more so than the desserts which left us dazed by their originality. Book an earlier time than you would normally as this cannot be rushed and expect three hours to glide by. One of the most expensive restaurants in Nerja - and worth it.

Ate at Sollun last week. Third visit in 3 holidays in 3 years. This is a superb restaurant. Chef/owner Juan is passionate about his menu and ingredients. His culinary English vocabulary has improved in last year and he revels in explaining the content and preperation of his dishes. Not all menu items may be available, depends on Juan's opinion of produce quality at market. Ambient decor, not typically Spanish. Attentive service, not rushed but not waiting too long between courses either. This is a gem of a restaurant, not cheap but great food, ideal for special occasion or holiday final night treat. Don't expect massive portions, but you will get creative and superb value for money cuisine.
