When we are in Nerja, we eat here. José and his family team are the perfect hosts and make wonderful food! Their menu is varied, their portions are generous and their prices are reasonable. Can't recommend this place highly enough!

This was the worst meal we have ever experienced in a reastaurant! In a company of seven all food serves was inedible. Unrecognisable paella, salty pasta and inedible tuna. Avoid this place!
