typical spanish fish and tapas bar and restaurant. The bar is always busy, with tiled walls and spanish noise levels. In the back is a large restaurant area, not cosy but the fish is always fresh and excellent.

Went there because a friend found it recommended in a list. Its an old fashioned fish restaurant with fairly basic furnishings. It looks like it has been around for a long time and has a faithful clientele. I ordered bacaloa (cod) fritters and had asked the waiter whats in it, eg potato in the batter and he replied, just cod.... More

A good traditional Spanish tapas bar serving good food at a very good price. The food is all cooked and served the Spanish way. It can get very busy at times and is visited by lots of friendly Spanish people all enjoying themselves. It is a good experience to be trying different tapas amongst the Spanish people. Give it a...

This has to be my favourite tapas bar in Nerja. It does get very busy with both Spanish and tourists but don't let this put you off.

They have a large & fresh variety of seafood. The friendly staff and nice garden tarrace add up to the good atmosphere. Make sure to be there when they open, as it geta crowded really fast.

After we visit El Balcón de Europa, we tried to find this restaurant due to our friend's recommendation. They are famous of sea food. I ordered 'Pil Pil de Langostinos' that is shrimp with garlic sauce and it was excellent. The only thing that I missed was my coffee after my heavy meal, which they don't serve.
