Visited two nights running, numerous rounds of drinks and selected different tapas with everyone. Not necessary to seek further food as full up. A good eating experience, served by friendly and efficient staff in a bar full of spanish character and ambience. Well worth a visit.

Choose from a selection of seafood tapas and monteditos. Chipirones, almejas and mejillones all excellent. If you can find a place to sit, you are in for a treat.

We love going to El Pulguilla for tapas as do a large number of the locals. It is the go to place for lunch tapas for the working population in the town core. A very good variety of fish, seafood and meats. True tapa - buy your wine, get your free plate of food. Try their calamaritos - fresh and... More

This tapas bar gets very busy. Understandable as it is such a friendly bar wth very efficient service. The Tapas are free with a drink. The choice is really good. Excellent value.

I simply loved this place. The environment is spacious and lively, with a really good buzz. It's noisy, not with music but with talking so don't expect a quiet intimate place to whisper sweet nothings.... The staff are friendly and efficient, but the best is what you come here for - the tapas. Lots of choice, good value and really... More

My wife and I have just been here for tapas for a light Sunday lunch. We are both tapas lovers and this quite simply rates as one of the best seafood (but not exclusively) tapas we have ever eaten in. For over an hour we were the only non Spanish in the place. The tapas as opposed to the restaurant... More

Typical Spanish bar and fish restaurant. If you sit in the bar you can have a drink that comes with a choice of taps as a very reasonable price or you can sit in the restaurant or outside/tented area and have a full meal. They do serve meat as well as fish/seafood but primarily this is a place to eat... More

Great and good value tapas in this busy place in Nerja. We had a load of good food and drink for not much at all-you get a tapas of your choice for each drink so a couple of drinks can earn you a decent meal. Recommended

Typical Spanish bar/restaurant/tapas place. Very noisy due to happy, talkative Spaniards. Excellent tapas, good vibes. But too much light in the evenings. Lunch in the courtyard on Saturdays and Sundays when Spanish families are out is very enjoyable

Thank Viggotje
