We were repeatedly recommended to eat in Restaurant 34 during our weeks holiday. We tried the tapas sat outside on the street watching the world go by as a taster & immediately booked in for dinner the following evening. Well, along with other reviewers we were visually impressed with the restaurant setting and the food was fantastic. Priced as you'd expect from an up-market restaurant, the food was impeccably presented and delicious. The staff are fantastic & very helpful, we were 20 mins late and had another 2 guests who joined us and nothing was too much trouble. They staff turned a table of two into four by the terrace pool. As other reviewers have mentioned nothing is too much trouble and not in your face. We're going back to Nerja in September and will going to restaurant 34.

One of the best meals we've had in definitely the best setting.
Fantastic choice of food, everything from swordfish to ribeye steak. Sat outside at the rear of the restaurant overlooking the pool and beach, flamenco guitarists played all night, fabulous.

I have been wanting to stay at the Carabeo for some time, and was lucky enough to have dinner on a recent trip in April this year can not fault the food, the service was exactly as I had hoped it would be. Very friendly welcoming just perfect. I love Nerja it's a favourite destination of mine and the Carrabeo has just got to be on your must do list;-) see you next year or later this if lucky.

Excellent food, french cuisine, very good service and fantastic location right by the seaside with marvellous seaview, just a few minutes walk from the main plaza. Highly recommended. We'll be back:-)

Had a fantastic meal in this restaurant with friends, the food was as good as it gets. The tuna steak was without question the best I have ever tasted and the wine selection was the best too.This restaurant offers everything from inside dinning, to views of the pool area and beach and is just a great place for any occasion. The staff were excellent and attentive, and we were encouraged to take our time and enjoy our evening. I would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Just used the restaurant, however I am in Nerja with friends and they are staying and report that it...

Our stay in Hotel Carabeo 34 was to celebrate my partner's birthday and we had a wonderful time. We stayed in one of the sea view suites and the room was superb as was the service. It was an absolute joy to leave the room in the morning for breakfast and to return to find our room serviced and spotlessly clean. All the staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay and we were especially grateful to Placido in the Tapas Bar for his attentive and helpful service during our stay. In addition to several visits to the Tapas Bar we also ate twice in the Restaurant during our stay and we found the food and service to be of the highest quality on both occasions. So why "almost perfect"? We thought that the breakfasts could have been improved and especially the attempt ( very well meant I'm sure) to provide a moderately heated cabinet with a fried English pre-cooked breakfast which didn't work. Secondly and probably more difficult to resolve, was the horrible plastic roof over part of the indoor restaurant which was visible from our room terrace. Perhaps this seems a little harsh as if you raise your eyes a little you look out onto one of the most perfect sea views I've been fortunate enough to witness. We'll be back #34. My beautiful lady has a big birthday next year and where else could be better to celebrate? I forgot to mention the help we got from Margaret this year to make Sylvia's birthday this special. We love this Hotel and when we win the Euromillions we're going to come and live there until the money runs out!

Room Tip: It has to be one of the sea view suites!

If you're looking for panoramic sea views, friendly service and delicious food in Nerja, look no further! Dinner here was excellent from start to finish. The service was excellent, the staff were warm and friendly (but not 'in your face'!) and the food was beautifully presented, fresh, generous portion sizes, and delicious. The ambience was enhanced by two guitarists playing discreetly beside the pool in the extensive, landscaped terrace. Overall a very special evening. Highly recommended.
