We stopped here for a drink and enjoyed the freshly cooked fish tapas. Only six euros for four glasses of wine plus tapas - a bargain. However make sure you go to the bar and not the somewhat soulless cafe opposite.

We were recommended to go to La Puntilla by our host. I wish we'd gone on the first day of our 5 day trip to Nerja instead of the third!

Recommended by people in our hotel we found our way to this excellent restaurant and tapas bar. So worth `while seeking it out. The place was abuzz with local people relaxing on a Saturday afternoon. Plenty of choice from the free tapas to go with the inexpensive drinks. A great place to come if you are on half board.

We came here as part of a tapas trail. Had a good variety of tapas on show and all you need to do is ask when you buy a drink and point. There is a restaurant with the same name across the road which we nearly went into so make sure you go to the right place!!!

This restaurant was recommended by our travel guide as real typical restaurant. Somewhere inside the center of the city we found the restaurant. We chose a table outside (in the street).... More
