We have been visiting here for the last few years and every single time it's amazing! The food is cooked to perfection and big portions too..I had the snapper & king prawn kebab & my husband the fillet steak both cooked perfectly and staff are really lovely too! Overall one of our favourite restaurants. Excellent!

We had between us, onion soup, meat and potato soup (was delicious and more like a stew). Fish of the day... More

This place is good for menu del did and tapas at the bar. Pork chop is a fair size for a menu del dia.

At the western edge of Nerja, just across the lower bridge, beside a canal, on the way out of town (or into town), El Puente sits on the bend in the road. Just across the roadway there is a private car park (lock your car and leave nothing of value exposed to view). All that being said, El Puente is... More

When we returned to the car nothing was apparently amiss, all was still locked. But when we returned to our rental villa, we discovered the loss. So BEWARE OF CLEVER THIEVES. IT PUT A... More
