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 !!!
