We got to meet the chef who is a fun and kind Romanian lady . And the owner really went the extra mile to make us feel at ease and welcomed. We had the 4 grilled meats plater and was more than enough for two people to share. We even received free spanish liquor at the end of the meal and candies.

We were recommended this place by family and we were not disappointed. Possibly the highlight of our holiday. The 4 of us treated ourselves to a number of tapas style starters followed by the best Filet steaks and ribs I've had in years, with the best of the lot being a filet of lamb. Never had this before and it was oustanding. The owner was both professional and funny, making us feel most welcome with his jokes and banter.
Will be our first stop when we return to Nerja
