An interesting take on Spanish behavior. I have been coming here for around 10+years and still highly recommend this traditional Spanish ceveseria. It's interesting to see how some 'mature' Spaniards 'lurk' to almost covertly intimidating visitors out of their positions at the bars. BUT NOT...More

The ambiance is not that great, BUT and this is a big but...the food is outstanding. The tomato salad, the red pepper salad with fresh garlic on both were delicious. The sole was perhaps the best we have ever had (tender, flavorful, nutty tasting), along...More

The best and cheapest tapas in Nerja, but my God it's mental! We went twice and the first time you couldn't move an inch in the place it was packed! Mostly with Spanish, which is a good sign in of its self, but it's crowded...More

Most of the tapas are seafood. The clams and mussels are steamed and should not have gluten, nor should the chorizo. Much of the seafood, however, may very well have gluten. You can ask what items are cooked in flour... More
