We were five evenings in Nerja and had originally planned to try every evening a different location. But after the first night at Puerta del mar we were so pleased and decided to go the next evening again - and then again and again and again - so we spent the whole five nights there with perfect service, perfect fish...

"Restaurante y Marisqueria Puerta Del Mar" is a strategically located restaurant in the centre of Nerja. It has spectacular views of the Mediterranean sea and to its west of the beautiful "Paseo Balcon de Europa" lined with palm trees where green parrots make their nests. The restaurant design and decoration are quite modern. There are only four tables by the... More

We had lunch here with some friends and the whole experience was fabulous. The views are amazing but there are only three tables are at the sea front so if you want to enjoy your meal with the views, make sure you book a table before hand! We ordered the salt baked fish and it was amazing, beautifully cook, very... More

We've been here a few times. Last time was in May 2016. We'd just booked to come back for the first time over Christmas and New Year. Many recommended "British " traditional places for Christmas dinner. We didn't fancy that. We wanted something more Spanish. Once again Puerto excelled. Met friends for tapas first at the bar. Tapas were superb.... More

Most restaurants in the area of the Balcon are there to accommodate tourists, but this one was full, at lunchtime, with local business folks. Really noisy and great atmosphere Full table service by highly trained waiters and food cooked to perfection. Wide selction of food available - pick your own fish and/or seafood if you wish. Excellent local house wines.

Actually went here by mistake with my husband. What a fantastic place. The staff make you feel like royalty and give you food fit for a king. Well done.

A chance visit with friends one who was familiar with this hidden gem of a fish restaurant. Extensive range of fish from exotic to common beautifully cooked and presented. Range of home made deserts, when I chose a baked apple this was a delicious spicy cold treat. Good range of reasonably priced wines.

We have been going to Nerja for years and after a few visits discovered La Marea, on a busy corner of a main road. There were colourful tiled murals, a very local clientele, smart waiters and excellent fish. A few years ago we were dismayed to find it had closed, but soon glad to discover that the owners continued in... More
