Best meal i've had in Nerja to date. Impeccable service and fantastic food. Wouldn't think twice about going back. A glass of red wine, mineral water, salad, clams in white wine and garlic sauce, fresh local fish with veg, desert all for €41. Amazing!

We ate here twice for dinner. Staff were great, service efficient and the seafood was fantastic. Loved the clams (had these twice), scallops and the other seafood was good too. The other diners choices looked fantastic too - especially the platters and fish stews. A table in the window would have a great view of the sea. Good for a... More

Dined at Puerta del Mar last weekend while on a week break in Nerja. Table next to window with stunning view over the Balcony de Europa and out to sea. If you like fresh seafood which you can choose yourself then this place is for you. Oysters, razor clams, Dorado ( sea bream ). Fantastic! Pretty much anything you'd want... More

Good choice of seafood dishes and well cooked. We found the waiters a little inattentive. There could be some improvement with service.

We were five evenings in Nerja and had originally planned to try every evening a different location. But after the first night at Puerta del mar we were so pleased and decided to go the next evening again - and then again and again and again - so we spent the whole five nights there with perfect service, perfect fish...

"Restaurante y Marisqueria Puerta Del Mar" is a strategically located restaurant in the centre of Nerja. It has spectacular views of the Mediterranean sea and to its west of the beautiful "Paseo Balcon de Europa" lined with palm trees where green parrots make their nests. The restaurant design and decoration are quite modern. There are only four tables by the... More

We had lunch here with some friends and the whole experience was fabulous. The views are amazing but there are only three tables are at the sea front so if you want to enjoy your meal with the views, make sure you book a table before hand! We ordered the salt baked fish and it was amazing, beautifully cook, very... More

We've been here a few times. Last time was in May 2016. We'd just booked to come back for the first time over Christmas and New Year. Many recommended "British " traditional places for Christmas dinner. We didn't fancy that. We wanted something more Spanish. Once again Puerto excelled. Met friends for tapas first at the bar. Tapas were superb.... More

Most restaurants in the area of the Balcon are there to accommodate tourists, but this one was full, at lunchtime, with local business folks. Really noisy and great atmosphere Full table service by highly trained waiters and food cooked to perfection. Wide selction of food available - pick your own fish and/or seafood if you wish. Excellent local house wines.
