We had the 8 tapas chosen by the chef. (fortunately he was happy to cater for our shell fish allergy) We had some expected tapas, cold meats cheese etc. which were really good (compared to the quality of cold meat and cheese we had elsewhere in nerja, tapas plaza was exceptional). We then had a few other plates of more... More

Been here couple of times now. Very interesting menu with Spanish Tapas and also International, including some very nice Indonesian dishes. We tries the mixed International Tapas with ten different dishes. It was all very nice but it is the Indonesian dishes which are best. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal but would probably go for exclusively Indonesians dishes next time.... More

The service, friendliness and taste was way much better than we expected. The tapas was great and we would definately recommend this place. If you like asian style tapas, try the Tom Ka soup and the Gambas Teriyaki (not on menu but they "invented" it for us)

Being a regular visitor to Nerja, I regularly find myself popping down to Tapas Plaza. Johann and Jeanette are warm & welcoming, the drinks are great and the food - well quite simply it's the best food in Nerja.

Not sure why it's called Sabor on TA, this is tapas plaza and the food is decent. Very good value and tasty as well as being in a great location. One of the best places to eat on Burriana. Only gripe is that when we ordered the chef's choice of 8 items for €20 it was a bit annoying that... More

We visited this lovely little café/restaurant quite a few times whilst on holiday and must say the food was amazing and the owner was lovely and accommodated everyone a very fussy eater. We had lunch and diner and the food was excellent. The smoothies were also excellent. Very reasonable priced. Thank you very much

we found this place last year and had lunch there every day likewise this year as it,s so good,you can have an indonesian tapas board or a european style made up by johan, jeanette does front of house and always looks after you, explaining everything as you go along, it beats sitting in the crowded beach side restaurants any day
