“The real Spain, simple and perfectly cooked.”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

My husband is a sea food nut so had to try almost everything on the chalk menu, all ordered standing at a high bar while sipping ice cold Cruzcampo, served fast and perfectly cooked a la plancha it was the true taste of Spain. Squid and morcilla stand out dishes but hake, prawns, bacalao also delicious. If you only visit one fish tapas restaurant whilst in
Nerja make it this one, racione menu all looked delicious too, will be back for the deep fried clams. Shocked at the cheapness, all two beers and six tapas for 6 euro, imagine that in the U.K!

“Excellent freshly cooked tapas, very clean!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

I have been here several times as it is so good, attracts a crowd of locals which is a good sign. Staff friendly, restaurant is very clean and fresh. Tapas looks appetizing and is cooked al la plancha to order.

Non Alcoholic beer is also served on draught.

Great place, will be back!

“Tapas Always Excellent”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Have visited this tapas bar on previous holidays and was delighted to see it hadn't changed this time. A busy bar usually bustling with Spanish customers. Service is swift and the tapas is free at the bar! There is a great selection so be brave and try it all, it won't disappoint!
