We visited this Bar a few times whilst on our Nejra break, totally Spanish atmosphere excellent, drinks and tapas very good, this is just a good honest bar nothing flashy, so if you're looking for a traditional place to eat and drink try El Chispa

I agree with Dario, its off season so not necessary to book, just turn up! Its an informal bar and restaurant together, plenty of locals.
