“Should be best in Nerja”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

While Oliva is good, this place has better food. Worst thing is the location!
The owner puts his heart and soul into his food.

“Serious food for grown-ups”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

Complaining that Sollun doesn't have a kids is like complaining that water parks don't have enough conference facilities - it completely misses the point. A tantalising menu delivers local themes, modern innovative cooking and first class presentation. The proprietor Juan makes every table feel like 'the chefs table' and is passionate and knowledgable about his food. We left the wine selection to Juan and he clearly knows about that too! When we drained our fabulous glass of white before the starter arrived (I know - Brits abroad!) he gave us a refill on the house - a nice touch indicative of the high level of service and attention to detail throughout. Sollun isn't cheap but you would pay double for food and service at this level in London. Highly recommended.

“Top table again.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

Juan retains his passion and flair and delivers on quality food that does exactly what is says on the menu - he will even explain the tastes and combinations before they hit your palate and should you have a dislike for any ingredient he will remove or suggest an alternative. Can be a bit "pricey" but for that special evening out it is worth it.

“Best in Nerja”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

My boyfriend & i visit Nerja at least once maybe twice a year & have found that this restaurant never disappoints. Whether its Juan's sheer passion for his food that always tastes wonderful or the beautiful and elegant way in which the food is presented. You'll be glad you visited. The staff are attentive, but never bother you unnecessarily. Juan - if you read this - what is the name of your house red wine, as it tasted wonderful and complimented my beef fillet perfectly!
& thank you once again for storing my bag of gifts behind the bar whilst we ate

see you next year.

Victoria & David

“Long waiting time and not the best location...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

We booked here in the UK before going over to Nerja. When we arrived for our assigned night, the restaurant had us booked for the night after but did have a table free. We sat outside which had a lot of people walking past right next to you which felt a bit too close. As it's on a back street, there were no views.

The food was lovely but we waited quite a while inbetwen courses.

We preffered Au Petit Paris and Oliva over here but give it try for something different
