We have visited this restaurant every year for at least ten years and have always enjoyed the experience. This time we were aware of the downsizing of the potions. The food is still of the same high quality, but perhaps they have chosen this method rather than raising their prices.

Good homely food and very reasonably priced. The portions are quite large so you may need a doggy bag. Staff very good also

The food was OK, but the service really could have been better. It gets very busy, so they are doing something right! With all the choice in Nerja, though, I would go somewhere else.

Not much sets this restaurant aside from others in the area. More or less the same (very extensive) menu. Good cooking, nice service, and a fine plaza for outdoors eating. Good meeting spot.

They say that indeed, and they're probably right. The salads are excellent, fresh and huge. They are so good that we visited this restaurant three times during a week's break. The rest of the menu also looked really good. The house wine was very nice and the service friendly and efficient. Prices are reasonable to low. We'll make straight back... More

My husband and I have made several trips to Nerja within the last few years, having wonderful old friends who live in Nerja, as well as dear friends from Madrid who join us there. Joanny has been our go-to cafe for lunches and dinners and never disappoints. I myself happen to be a vegetarian and the assortment of fresh vegetables... More
