Friendly accommodating Staff, we would go there 3 to 4 times night and daytime on our holiday, which is yearly.The atmosphere has not changed, the tapas are always fresh. The pinchitos and fish are very appetising as always.

Not the best Tapas in the area but one of the cheapest. Lots of locals eat here. Recommended by a friend.

El Pulguilla is consistently a good place to get seafood tapas and meals while on the beach. Prices are reasonable and service is good. While no gourmet place, if you want good local fresh seafood this is he place to come.

Over the last two years we already came back there many times for the fresh seafood tapas/racions (delicious squids, calamaris, etc) and the authentic atmosphere. This restaurant is mostly frequented by locals, prices are reasonable and food is delicious.

No, like a lot of places in Nerja, It closes for staff vacation or internal work during the year, generally during the off-season, like in January.
