Stopped for lunch here in lovely quiet square. Lunch was excellent and very reasonably priced. Staff did not rush you but were attentive. Will definitely return.

We have been here a few times during our stays in Nerja and we always return. Ideal location and a sun trap for lunch. Usually there is a guy singing on the square and this really adds to the ambience. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is excellent and great value and the drinks to match.... More

This is a cafe set in a quiet square with orange trees. I have been going there for over twenty years. The staff are always friendly. It is very popular and gets very busy so you may have to wait ages for your food to arrive. But who cares-You are on holiday. The portions are on the large side and... More

The service was nice and polite, but have to say that we arrived here for quick late lunch and there were only a few people around and still we had to wait 45 minutes for the food arrive. A long time when one consider that we are talking about a simple fish dish, omelet and a plain ham sandwish. Prices... More

We were lucky enough to be dropped here in a taxi after landing late and getting lost in nerja with our 3 hungry sons. It was great. Lovely, tasty food , surrounded by typical Spanish buildings and orange trees at very reasonable prices. I would recommend to families or couples looking for a relaxed lunch or dinner. Perfect atmosphere and... More

It's not often I get a craving for egg and chips when in Nerja but when I do I know exactly where to go, here. The eggs are cooked to perfection and the chips are home made, what more could one ask for! At €5 eggsellent value too. The coffee is great too. All the other food looks good although... More

We always head for this bar at lunchtime - it is not easy to find but well worth the effort (just off Los Huertos) The choice is excellent, but our favourite is the Mediterranean sandwich, which, together with fresh orange juice, makes a wonderful and healthy meal.
