Something's are memorable but quickly forgotten. Not so a visit to Fusion Food and Lounge in Plaza Olvida, Nerja. Situated beside the great-value Joanny's Cafe the restaurant exudes class. From the cosy exterior - complete with sofas and blankets (for those who must smoke!) - to the tastefully furnished interior one immediately gets the sense of "class". Run by a charming Swedish couple - Kim and husband/ chef Frederik - the cooking is way beyond what one would expect in a quiet and delightful small town which has defied the tourist demands yielded to by its Costa del Sol neighbours to the west of Malaga. The warm welcome sets one at ease immediately and the necessary wait for food - because everything is freshly cooked - is soon overlooked by the quality and imagination expressed in the the food and it's presentation. Wines have been carefully chosen and their origin can be explained by the ever-attentive Mark. Frederik's experience gained in his native Stockholm and added to by spells in France, Italy and Thailand explain the name chosen for this delightful restaurant. Not cheap, as Spanish restaurants go, but really worth every penny spent!

We ate in this restaurant on a hunch as we were passing. It is a little tucked away off the beaten track and so was quiet. Every aspect of the evening was perfect. The service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We were given very interesting and unusual bread and an amuse-bouche which was amazing. My main dish (serrano-ham wrapped cod and scallops) was simply the best dish I have eve eaten. My wife had an Asian wild boar dish and enjoyed it greatly too. We both has the Swedish Cake which was delightful. We ate in a few of Nerja’s nicer restaurants, and they were almost all good, but this was the best.

The quality of the food was outstanding and the cooking was of a 2 star Michelin standard without the usual pretensions. Superb service added to a terrific experience. We are due back in Nerja in May and this will be our first stop.

4 of us went to the restaurant for dinner. Sadly not many people about but this is the sign of the times. People are eating cheaply so staying away from good quality restaurants.
This is top notch. The cooking here is of a high standard and we all enjoyed our meal. The bread is outstanding along with the swedish crisp breads and whipped butter. Presentation superb, this is up there with the top London Restaurants. Do not miss this gem, you can go for perhaps one course. The only small minor detail is the price of the wine. Perhaps reduce a little to keep the drinks bill down. I will definitely return as this is surely the best of the best. P.S. Do not read the negative reviews, they obviously do not understand good food.
