“Always a good choice”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

This is an great family run restaurant on the landside of Burriana Beach. The lunchtime offering includes some excellent salads and at night time it provides a high quality a la carte menu. The menu of the day selects some of the a la carte dishes and provides very good value for about €17 for three courses. The food is home made and portions are generous. It is one of the few restaurants we will visit more than once on a trip to Nerja.

“Best of the Burriana Restaurants”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

Been coming here since the very beginning of JJ's, when they were housed in San Juan de Capistrano and their restaurant is without a doubt one of the best places to visit on a trip to Nerja.

The menu of the day represents great value for money and the owners are very pleasant and friendly.

I would recommend reserving a table & requesting an exterior table, as the indoors can get very hot & occasionally (when it is busy) it appears the staff can forget you as they rush past to serve the exterior seating area.

Definitely recommend & will definitely be returning in the future!

“Nerjas finest restaurant”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

This restaurant is like home from home when we visit Nerja on Holidays! Great wholesome food at fabulous prices and to be topped off by dining alfresco! Janet and Miguel are the friendly proprietors and hands down the best restraint on the Burriana Strip if not best in Nerja! Nerja wouldn't be the same without them and their culinary delights!

“Great salad”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Called in for lunch and had excellent tuna salad, which included strawberries and orange slices. Cost including 2 drinks was 15 euros. Owner/waiter was not particularly jolly, but the food could not be faulted.
