We found the restaurant by chance at the end of the Balcone de Europe. We had a fantastic meal with a fantastic view out over the sea, it was a very quiet restaurant but the quality of the food was great and the service was excellent.

What a gem!! We had two wonderful meals in this restaurant, it overlooks the sea and is on the balcon de Europa in Nerja, decor a little dated but don't let that detract from the delicious food and very friendly staff.

Went here in Aug 2014. Beautiful place set into the tower under Balcon de Europa....easy to miss! It was very quiet only one other couple there. The view is amazing, however, the windows could have been cleaner! Food was excellent and well presented. Reasonably priced too. Service excellent...a complete gentleman of a waiter. Couldn't understand why it wasn't busier, but... More

We just wandered down into the restaurant and we were delighted to get a seat by the window with spectacular views. The waiter who looked after us was an absolute gentleman polite and efficient and very helpful. The food and wine was excellent and I would highly recommend to eat in this restaurant.

This was our second visit and we loved the service and food. The veal and king prawns were excellent. Will definately come back. Amazing view and surroundings. By far the best in Nerja.

Lovely dinner. When visiting the Balcon we realized there was a restaurant beneath. I walked down the practically hidden stairway and it was closed. We came back in the evening and got a table by the window with the most stunning views. Our seafood and appetizers were delicious and our server was very attentive. Unfortunately the restaurant gives the impression... More

When I originally saw Rey Alfonso, I assumed it would be very expensive due to it's jaw-dropping view. I came across it again in tripadvisor when I was looking for good Paella in Nerja. We were a family of 5 and 2 of us had the Paella, although it was big enough to feed 3. It was €12.50 pp for... More

Restaurant is in great location with lovely view of the sea. Decor needs some attention and seen better days. Staff were pleasent enough although we did ask for childs portion of an adult main meal and were refused - surely its not that hard to plate up a smaller portion! Paella was nice and most of other main meals ok.... More

This place has the best location and views in Nerja but for some reason is virtually unknown (strange considering its on the balcon) the decor could do with some much needed tlc but the seafood paella is to die for, we have tried some other dishes on other visits some good some average, service is great and the waiter is...

Visited in Sept 2014 with my partner for first time. We stumbled across this restaurant as we wandered around the Balcon De Europa in the main town area of Nerja. It is actually built into the rock side that the balcony sits on and sweeps round with large windows to look out over the Mediterranean Sea. When we arrived, there... More
