The bar on the terrace with one of the best views ever, we often stay here for a drink and a meal, read our books and write up some postcards. Good meals and good wine, see you soon and thanks for the local information.

The old building is a great landmark, and the square good place to sit with a beer while watching for the bus back to nerja.The best view is from the other side of the river valley.
