Was here a couple of years ago and loved it. Very friendly and helpful to non-Spanish speakers. In fact, it helped influence our decision to return to Nerja. Not so this time. The barman ignored us and served the locals even after acknowledging our drink...More

A must for all who like to experience local culture and great sea food. Even with limited Spanish you can make yourself understood and the staff are very helpful. The sardines are a must and you can have a look at the fish before deciding...More

I find it strange to give a low score to a place i have been to many times, and will probably also go back to many times, but it's just often a generally uncomfortable and trying experience. I think we go mainly for the location,...More

99% fish and seafood as fresh as you can get, simply cooked, tapas at the bar and on high stools in the bar area and outside are very generous. Seems a bit chaotic but it is anything but.

We found this via TripAdvisor. It does not look very much from the outside, but the ambiance and staff are very friendly and welcoming. We popped in for a (free) Tapas and drink. The prices are good. We were offered a pork skewer Tapas, which...More
