Really good food in this cozy little traditional restaurant. We ordered a range of tapas style dishes and it was all freshly cooked and seriously nice-all the more remarkable as it is just one couple doing everything! Recommended

This place is great. Jose cooks in what can only be described as a galley; but he produces very good food. Victoria looks after the bookings and menu orders. The place only seats about 20, is immensely popular. You need to book days in advance! Closed the n Tuesdays.

Was walking back to get a pizza for dinner and came across this small little restaurant, it only had about 8 tables in it. It was very Spanish we thought we might have just a beer, but when we saw the meals the others where eating we changed out mind, we both had the pepper pork fillet, it was so... More

Passed by as it opened. All tables empty but only one without a reserved sign so booked that. Well worth the wait. Food was simple but really well done and value was unbelievable. Highly recommended

Fresh food cooked perfectly to order. Totally loved our visits to Jose y Victoria's, food is second to none with the lovely tapas and Sangria who cares about waiting which really isn't that bad. Lovely couple can't to come back.

As others have indicated this is not the choice for you if you want a quick meal, in and out. The food is obviously cooked to order and as such does take a while. However I really do suggest you try this place as it's a very nice and relaxed experience and not expensive either. The food was very good,... More

Ate here on our second night and immediately booked again for later in the week. Jose is a master in the kitchen. I would advise to book in advance as we were really lucky to get a table. Highly recommend peeps big thumbs up.

Be prepared to wait for your food - and you'll also probably need to book - as it is very small (and quirky). All the food is cooked to order by the owner in front of you and you may well be served by his wife! Tasty food, good value. Recommended

I always return to Jose and Victoria's when in Nerja. Victoria is a gem who manages front of house with no nonsense! Her husband Jose does all the cooking. Yes, sometimes service can be slow but that is because it is all home-cooked with love. A place to relax, have a glass of wine, enjoy watching the world go by... More

Small restaurant run by husband and wife team. He does the cooking which is excellent but a bit slow to arrive as he seems to take great care. Service was friendly and helpful. We arrived at 8.30pm and just ordered a main course and had to wait about an hour for it. But it was worth waiting for. Would recommend... More
