We really love Stephans. Very friendly staff, big glasses of delicious house wine, and beautifully cooked food in a warm atmosphere. Beware though, you need big appetites for the portion sizes.

I looked on trip advisor for reviews on all restaurants in Nerja as I had previously visited twice in as many years. I came across this place which seemed to meet all my requirements as I am a bit of a fussy eater! The food is fantastic and along with the service, to me, it makes the restaurant unbeatable in...

The staff were so friendly, my daughter took a real shining to freddie :) The food was really yummy; I had the ribs which were massive but soooo good I was upset to leave some, a friend had the sausage and sour cabbage which he really enjoyed... will definitely be visiting next time we're in nerja.

The name is written in German with English use of apostroph. However, its Bavarian style food, beers and service is great. The waiters from northern Germany have dressed as if they were from Bavaria, and they do a great job; the place can definitely be recommended to everybody who like good German food, beers, wines and service. It is a... More

I had the sausage and sour cabbage and it was beautiful. I went with someone who has been before and they were as happy with it now as they were a year ago. They had free wifi but it didn't work very well for anyone at our table. The service was good but was a bit rushed. Perhaps they were... More

Ate here the first night of our stay in Nerja as it was just opposite our apartment. Went for the steaks, given the recommendations of here. They were nothing special at all, the sort of thing you would eat in a poor pub back home. I suspect they had previously been frozen and although perfectly edible, they were boring. Maybe... More
