Great food for a very good price. Good atmosphere but usually very busy so might have to wait for a table. Highly recommend the chips and the pork brochette!

Visited on strength of a recommendation. Service very slow. Food OK but not special. Prices OK but you get what you pay for. Disappointed and will not be visiting again. Maybe we had the wrong dish. Lacks Spanish authenticity.

Always pop in when we're in Nerja. Nice outside seating. Chips are great. Fresh cooked large swordfish steak was fantastic. Chicken Corona blue really tasty.
