“Worth a visit”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

We visited in October 2013 and then again in June 2014.
My partner had a selection of burritos which came with a couple of prawns, small bit of beef and small bit of chicken. The novelty was how it was served in a 'tree' type stem with branches on it which led to small plates ranging from guacamole, cheese, cabbage, onions to the tortillas, this was €23. When it was all set out on the plate I would question if it was worth it.
I had a burrito with chicken in it, this was served with rice on the side, it was tasty. The total bill for the dinner and 1 large beer, 1 cola and 1 water €46. On the expensive side compared to other places in Nerja. Staff attentive and friendly. It was worth a visit but we shan't be visiting again, there are too many other gems on offer in Nerja.

“The waiter forgot us!”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

We walked by here and were called over by a very friendly waiter, we were in two minds about food but agreed to have a drink. We were given a menu and about 15 minutes later the waiter came back and took our orders, we were really impressed by the nice surroundings , unfortunately about 30 minutes later I had to go and look for the waiter inside, several staff members passed before he waved over and ran to get the drinks, he brought them out one at a time about 5 minutes apart. They were good cocktails but it was such a drawn out experience it spoiled it. The icing on the cake was going to pay and finding out that they prices were v.a.t exclusive making it a very expensive wait!

“Nice place shame about the food”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

We thought this place looked lovely as we walked by, so we went back for lunch. The internal courtyard was attractive and the waitress very friendly and helpful. We chose nachos which were OK followed by a mixed plate as our main course and we were very disappointed. The overwhelming flavour and texture was of a very poor curry made with stringy chicken. Even for a light meal it wasn't cheap. We won't return.

“Terrible Food”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

I was in Nerja for two weeks in May with a friend and decided to try it. I should have realised when the place was empty there was a good reason. We did not find the waiter friendly, service was slow and the food was awful. We could not finish the meal, even queried the bill. It was not cheap. Value for money was zero. Spoke to local people from Nerja later in the week and they said 'no locals go there' for those very reasons.

“Marvellous Mexican”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

My husband had a 'lads' night at the cielito lindo while we were in nerja on our wedding week. All 25 of the guys raved about their meal and at least 10 went back with their wives and family's. Staff we're very accommodating, meal was perfect. We are coming back to nerja in September and will decently be going back.
