Situated in the old quarter of Nerja and retaining typical Spanish ambience. Feasted on mixed fish , baby calamaries and octopus. Good mix and plenty of fish washed down with ice cold beer. Slightly off the beaten track but worth searching out.

This is the best tapas bar in Nerja. Lots of atmosphere and standards are always high. Drinks are perfectly chilled and the staff are very friendly and attentive.
