This little bar deserves recognition for serving some of the best tapas in Nerja. It is always busy and noisy, as it is always full of locals. We love it here and come regularly. The tapas is fresh, and much of it cooked to order. The drinks are reasonably priced, so 3-4 tapas with drinks at lunchtime makes for an... More

Difficult to find but really worth it if you are after spanish laid back atmosphere. The owner ignored us at first when we started to order in english (no English translation on menu) but i wasnt surprised. But after i started to speak my very poor spanish he was really helpful and we really enjoyed all the tapas. All fresh... More

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! A very traditional bar and restaraunt setup, we chose to stand at the counter in the bar. It's very busy but the staff are efficient and pleasant. Each drink comes... More

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!!!
