This is a must go on my list of restaurants.i have never had a bad meal,they are always delicious there is indoor and outdoor seating. I would definitely recommend the ham egg and chips(that isn't what it is on the menu but I can't remember what it's called.)

Absolutely amazing restaurant, it is hard to find a restaurant that does typical Spanish home made food. Well this restaurant is just that and everything on the menu is to die for. The meat are all fresh and like butter in your mouth. Go there all the time and will continue going

We had a nice menu del dia and it was also good value. Friendly welcoming staff. Recommended. Makes a nice walk from Nerja if you go via the beach and cut across the car park and you can walk back into town or continue towards Punta Lara.

A must visit - pork fillet, garlic soup and prawn cocktail are highly recommended! Hard to spot from the road but worth looking out for

The do the best ''poor mans potatoes'' and brochetta's, all the meat is of the highest standard and is in great little setting... More

We had an excellent menu del dia with everything cooked freshly to order and great value. Home made gazpacho, mixed salad, followed by tender pork fillets and natillas for postre were excellent. Friendly welcoming staff. Recommended.
