Couldn't fault the value for money-3 courses for €9:90!!!-wine good and cheap-always helps! Won't be to everyone's taste but for a change to tapas and more expensive restaurants in the area we couldn't find complaint.

Stopped for lunch today and had THE best chicken soup as a starter. Three courses for €9.50 meant great value The only lady on duty spoke little English, but was very patient with my schoolboy Spanish.

We picked this place because of their 9 euro menu and for the view. The view was spectacular. The food was... not great. For instance, the dessert options on the menu included "crema catalana" and "chocolate mousse". Both were prepackaged and brought out still in...More

We make a point of always popping into the Cafeteria Calabella whenever we bring friends to Nerja. Again we managed to get a table right in the front of the balcony, overlooking the beach the the Balcony of Europe. As usual, the staff are friendly,...More
