Ran over this place by coincidence and was lucky to get a table without a reservation. I had the entrecôte as recommended here and was not disappointed, my husband had the chicken and was very pleased as well. Very nice service by the owner and we sat nicely on the street in front of the restaurant. Only negative I can come up with is that my kids (Swedish) did not like the sausages on the kids menu. Will recommend this place to friends.

This was our last night in Nerja and was the perfect last meal.
Lucky enough to have a walk in table out on the street.
Starters of prawns and squid perfect...mains of lamb and mixed grill hit the spot. - jug of sangria and bottle of white was just the ticket.
Owner and wife sang a lovely happy birthday for the next table.. all in all, staff & owner very attentive... Will definitely make this our first call when we next visit gorgeous Nerja.

This restaurant gets good reviews on Trip advisor but ti be honest we were a bit disappointed. The size of portions for the price we thought didn't represent good value. I had a fish kebab. three prawns and three pieces of monk fish! Having said that, the jacket potatoe was good. There is a salad bar but the slads are uninteresting and very basic.

Just away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist area you will find this very good Restaurant , we had a table on the street ( it’s closed from 6 pm ) so no traffic , the food was very good and my steak was cooked to perfection ! The staff are very friendly and helpful and the owner is running around keeping an eye on everything ! We can highly reccomend this little gem

Went for a meal on our first weeks holiday in Nerja. Hubby had barbecue spare ribs and l had chicken in mushroom sauce both were delicious. Staff and Owner were really nice and friendly. Went back a second time and was an excellent night again. Would certainly recommend to anyone as food delicious staff great and very reasonably priced. Can't wait to visit again next time we are in Nerja. Well done.
