Food looks impressive but cold and bland. No service with a smile either and had to wait over an hour for dishes to arrive. Disappointing for our last night in Nerja.

We found this restaurant by accident as we were walking around Nerja. The food and service were excellent with good quality wine and all at very reasonable prices. Highly recommend but I suggest you book as we were lucky to get a table.

I didn't know they did! I've seen plenty of single people there but I tend to go out of season.

MARIA BONITA was born with the idea of doing an authentic food to make you feel like at home ... aromes, fresh fruits, citrus senses, creation and love into your plate. Since 2009. Here you will eat fine. It's a place where we have clients but also friends, like a real family, here in Nerja, the Costa del Sol's Paradise !!!
