This restaurant is right on Burriana beach, although covered over it's sand underfoot. We were attracted by the very large barbecue and we choose the fish which proved to be a great choice. The portions sizes are large whatever you choose. The sea bass we had was very large and delicious. Excellent value for €17

Served quickly as there weren't many people with it being off season. Seafood paella was filling and tasted good. Chicken escalope with chips and veg were fine. Reasonably priced and would happily go again.

They serve the best full English breakfast in Nerja, including fresh orange juice and tea or coffee and for €7.50 it is a steal. Join the locals and have a Carajillo (cafe solo with brandy) to start your day.

Tried eating here, food very very average. Very busy and the waiting staff were clearly having to work hard to keep up. Was disturbed when one of them mentioned the incredibly low wage they receive with hardly any days off, which cannot be right, as Spain are in the EU, but I'm not a lawyer. Shame though.

Looking at lots of the reviews all I can say is I agree. It's a great place (we only did lunch) to eat. It was always busy and the staff never seemed to stop. You may have to wait a while to be served but only because they are so busy. Not sure if you can book a table but... More

We would always have to wait for a table at lunch which was testament to how good it is. You can get drinks at the bar while you wait. Good value meals, had a clam special. Absolutely delicious! Bit pricier than places in town but because of convenience of location it's worth it.

Had a fabulous lunch here, pretty much the best paella I've ever had, both of us agreed. Clearly cooked fresh, packed with tasty shellfish and meat. From the outside the place looks very much the same as everywhere else but the fact it was busy drew us in. I'd definitely give them a try if you are in Nerja. Enjoy

We have been here numerous times on our visits to the area. The food is excellent. We have had sardines, sea bass, steaks, salads and have never had a bad meal. It is well worth a visit if in Nerja

The staff at this restaurant have been there for a number years and are always very friendly.It is located right on the beach front and you can sit leisurely looking out across the sea enjoying you meal or drink.
