Good for grabbing a drink or light meal before or after tour. English was a little hard but certainly better then my Spanish so I'm not complaining. View if you sit near railing is beautiful.

We only intended to stop in for a coffee before going into the caves, but we saw there sandwich menu and decided to eat too. The waiters were really friendly, but their understanding of English is pretty limited. My wife ordered a provincial sandwich containing 'a tomato salsa with oregano', roughly translated. It arrived with slices of tomato - no... More

Having been involved in arranging previous Events at this Restaurant for a Club in Nerja we were always impressed with the service and quality of the food. However the most recent, invited to attend by friends of another club, we were most disappointed. The service has dropped along with the quality of the food. In fact the best 'course' was... More

Took one of the daily main dishes. Good portion for lunch, simple which is good in my book. The waiters did not understand much English but they were nice. Best view ever!!!

Often I find that restaurants associated with major attractions are pretty naff; that is not the case here! Most customers were only having a drink - 12:30 being two hours too early for lunch in Spain - but the waiter sorted us a table for seven and laid it out promptly. The menu was varied and we all found something... More

After a visit to the Caves today we decided to have a late lunch at the restaurant which served a number of restaurant level dishes as well as sandwiches. We chose the turbot (fish) grilled with chips and vegetables. We were pleasantly surprised by the standard of the dish as the fish was delicious and fresh, the chips were just... More

High prices for very average food and poor service from sour faced waitress. The view is saving this place.

Went to the Buffet Restaurant following a visit to the caves. Food was disappointing and cold and we were told there was a microwave if we wanted to heat it up. The food was slow to come out and we ended up not having any real choice. Would not go back as it was not good value for money.
