Esquina Paulina is about a warm welcome, a relaxed atmosphere and simple, but great tapas. The menu is only 1 small page, which is surprisingly small compared to most tapas restaurants. Yet they make up for this in great quality of produce. The ham is sliced as you order, you can even watch it from your seat! The sangria has been quoted as being "one of the best in Nerja". If you happend to be in Nerja, check it out!

We visited Esquina Paulina three evenings on the run on our recent holiday in Nerja. After a hectic day on the beach we found sitting at one of the outside tables enjoying fabulous tapas and high quality Spanish wines whilst watching the world go by, the perfect way to end the day. Service is very friendly, food fantastic and some of the best Spanish wine we have found; the 'Vina Izadi Crianza-Rioja' is one of the most drinkable Rioja's I have ever tasted. This is a Restaurant/Bar not to be missed on a visit to Nerja.

This little bar is my favourite place to drink a glass of cold white wine when I come to Nerja. It's situated in a little turn in the narrow road with a leafy front. In the day it looks like nothing, but at night the bar overflows with a crowd of customers. My husband and I visit this bar at least once when we're here for a visit... usually several times.

As a regular Nerja tourist and creature of habit I always have my evening pre - dinner drinks at "Paulinas" and always enjoy the fine wines, beers and cava on offer.
The cheese and Ham platters are also a must, they are excellent.
The hosts are as "Cool" and relaxed as ever and this year we were surprised by a local nerja gentleman who was weaving a basket from grasses he picks daily from the campo.
He was excellent and just sat outside Paulina's whilst he weaved a basket in front of us as we watched in amazement.
He is most definitely a national treasure and it was just wonderful to watch a craftsman at work, "A dying Breed no doubt".
I have attached a photograph of this skilled basket weaver and I even bought the basket he made in front of my eyes for 10 euros. He only wanted 5 euros but after witnessing the making of this fine piece of craft 10 euros was a worthy price to pay. ( The basket now in the UK full of lemons).
