Excellent steak and roast lamb- could have chosen from usual Italian pizza/pasta menu but decided on a meat option. Good choice. Brilliant busy atmosphere but not rushed. Lovely wine too. A fun night!

This tiny restaurant is full of character and run by characters. The proximity of the tables means that you have to share your dining experience with those around you and this is definitely part of the attraction. The food was excellent value and eating al fresco is always enjoyable.

Calle "Hernando de Carabeo" is a small, pedestrian only, street [sometimes motor cycles and business vans go through part of it]. It is mainly a residential street where you can see families out in the afternoon chatting while watching the children play. The street joins the down town centre [intersecting with Calle Pintada and Calle Ferrandiz very close to the... More

This is a very popular restaurat in Nerja due to its very reasonably priced pizza, its fun waiters and the opportunity to chat with you neighbours (due to the close proximity of the tables). I have eaten here a few times and I always meet interesting people to chat with.

Taking to account the price (pizza & pasta dishes start from 3.50€) the food tastes nice. Sometimes food is better than other days, my opinion pasta dishes are better. Potions are always huge so you can go away having main and pint for just under 5€ and feel satisfied. Summer time people queue up to get in, there is indoor... More

Like the restaurant next door La Dama is, as stated by many other TA reviewers, a no frills Italian restaurant with good food at very competitive prices....sea food pasta 5 euros, pizza 3-5 euros. At these prices you really cannot go wrong. Good service, food served promptly and the drinks were cheap. The only real negative...the toilets need some work... More

Low cost/no frills restaurant on Calle Hernando de Carabeo, not too far from Balcon de Europa. Had pizza and pasta and a couple of beers one evening. Cheerful staff, cheerful customers, food pretty good for the price. Pizza was tasty with just right thin crust. Pasta was reasonably good. Crepe desert wasn't as good (a bit dried up - maybe...

It's always a pleasure to visit here. It seems cheap and cheerful but you get some good food and great wine at a very reasonable price with fab service. Pizzas and Pasta at low prices bring people in but their meat and fish specials are always excellent. We really do enjoy going here as it's got something which others don't... More

Fast, friendly, good quality food....will not be beaten for value. A real no frills eatery with the friendliest of staff. All food is freshly prepared and is the best value around. I have eaten all over Nerja, and if you want fast, good food or are on a budget this is your place. Meal and drinks for a family of... More
