“Lovely!”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

I love La Teja. I have spent 2 christmas days eating my christmas lunch here! I fully recommend it, it has a lovely selection, great service and is just classic. I love the steak and blue cheese sauce and Onion Soup!!

“Disappointing menu del dia”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

We decided to choose the menu del dia, as it looked interesting and good value. The restaurant was empty, apart from three or four people at the bar, but we were encouraged by the good mixed salad and tasty courgette soup that we chose as starters. However, both main courses were a real disappointment - the chicken was swamped in a not very nice gravy, and the meat balls were tasteless, with no flavour of almonds in the 'almond' sauce. This was disappointing, because the service was friendly and very attentive.

“Not easy to find but worth the search”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

It would be easy to miss La Teja if you were not making for it specifically. It is tucked away down a side street behind an Indian restaurant which faces the main street. There is a long line of very mediocre pizza and hamburger type restaurants on the other side of the road and one could be forgiven for thinking that there are no more restaurants beyond these. Keep going, you will not be disappointed. The interior is very Spanish with traditional wooden seats and tables. The food is authentically Andalusian, the seafood soup, particularly, is superb. Between four of us, we had a paella which looked a little dry at first but turned out to be beautifully moist and packed with seafood, we all had to help out to finish it! We also had the traditional shoulder of lamb, wonderful, and a very unusual duck dish which consisted of strips of duck breast in a puff pastry case., which my chum thought the best he had ever eaten.
As others have said, it is not cheap but it is certainly great food and great value. One of the very few really good restaurants among the many poor tourist offerings in Nerja.

“Traditional Spanish Experience”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

We have visited La Teja many times and the food is always superb. It is a little more expensive than most places for a la carte - but worth it. There is also a good value "menu del dia" with plenty of choice. There is outside seating which is not very appealing and does not get much sun.
A good choice for a traditional spanish meal.

“lovely”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

had a great meal here - a bit pricey compared to other restarants but the food was lovely and the service was great. The chicken pate was one of the best ive had and the paella was really good. we even manage to squeeze a bit of dessert in at the end. Luckily it was over the road from our hotel because we couldnt move afterwards!
