Push the boat out and treat yourselves to this really excellent restaurant. Food is fine dinning at its best, just beautiful. They serve you little extras in between courses. The service is excellent, paying attention to detail at all times. Really enjoyed our visit!

Top quality Andalucian food: the Iberian pork was to die for. Expensive, but worth it. Great service and I'd go back (we've already been twice).

With two nights in Nerja we intended to try two restaurants but after dinner here we rejected that idea - why go elsewhere when you've found a gem? Atmosphere is a touch formal but if you look past that you realise their intention is to...More

Restaurant with a modern creative Andalusian cuisine, with a solid traditional base but constantly experimenting with new tastes, textures, techniques and products. The wine list includes wines from all around Spain. The restaurant is very close to Balcón de Europa, in the center of Nerja and has a private sunny terrace.
