“Top Class Food and Service”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

First thing you need to know is how to find it! We used info we had from previous reviews but still found it difficult to find, hope this helps.

At Plaza Balcon de Europa there is a Cafe called Albi clearly marked with umbrellas with name on. Walk past this on Left Side to far Right end of courtyard. You will pass restaurant El Candil on left and Julie's is BEHIND La Fuente in bottom Right Corner.
It doesn't have a visible sign up as you walk towards it or umbrellas with name on and is smaller than the others but keep going to the far right corner and you will be there.

Oscar (who is Cuban) is the main front of house person. He is always moving about chatting and dancing around to the Cuban Music they play making the atmosphere and dining experience what it should be...fun.
Oscar is always there when you need him but never in the way.

The Food was absolutely Fantastic easily some of the best food we have had. Julie manages to create dishes with so many flavours and definitely not run if the mill tapas. Also whilst noting tapas they are not really small or overly large so take less to begin and add to them, portions we got were larger than we thought we would get!

We are not wine drinkers so cannot comment on them but can say Mojitos were brilliant and Vodka plentiful in measures.

Service was great from Oscar and the waitress who we did not catch her name but she was very welcoming and helpful just as much as Oscar.

Overall the standard of food, drink and dining experience were Fantastic and far too cheap for what they deliver.

A must try restaurant.

“Fantastic Food!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I've been going to Nerja for 12 years now, and with some many restaurants to choose from its hard to try them all. I regularly use Trip Advisor for suggestions whilst eating out in Nerja. Julies did not fail. The tapas were absolutely fabulous. Oscar was an amazing host and made us feel so welcome. Everything about the place is truly wonderful and not to be missed. I'm absolutely dying to go back on my next visit to Nerja to sample more delicious cusine. And as an absolute hater of Sweetcorn, the Sweetcorn Fritters are to die for. Im not a covnert! AMAZING!

Its located just off the Balcon in the corner of the square of many restaurants. Don't leave Nerja without trying it!

“Great night's entertainment and wonderful food”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

There are a few places in Nerja that cater well for vegetarians. But Julies certainly excel in providing vegetarian food, but there is still plenty to have for the meat eater.
Maitre D Oscar's warm welcome sets up what is a wonderful evening. As for the food. I am not a great fan of aubergine, the Moroccan mix that Julie cooks her aubergine dishes with is magnificent, and the mix of international cuisine on offer on the menu should meet everyone appetite. We will be back.

“Tasty tapas”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Outstanding restaurant - wonderful, varied and very different tapas prepared by Julie. Front of house entertainment and warm, welcoming service by Oscar. Truly delicious menu and wine list - unassuming surroundings and tables set up to ensure lots of banter, discussion and Cuban dance lessons if you're not careful! A night to remember and a venue to revisit.
