This restaurant is very good. I particularly enjoyed the duck and would highly recommend this dish. The restaurant had a lovely atmosphere and was busy when we were there. I would imagine it would be important to reserve a table due to its popularity.

Restaurant with a modern creative Andalusian cuisine, with a solid traditional base but constantly experimenting with new tastes, textures, techniques and products. The wine list includes wines from all around Spain. The restaurant is very close to Balcón de Europa, in the center of Nerja and has a private sunny terrace.
