Have visited on occasions recently. A good range of vegetarian and non veg. choices. Excellent house red (Grenache). Enjoyed vegetarian courses esp Moroccan vegetable with aubergine chick peas although I'm not a vegetarian. Overall food excellent and staff friendly and engaging. Will certainly be back.

This friendly restaurant is a little bit off the beaten track. Food is tasty, wine is good and all to a reasonably price. Service is friendly but a little bit slow.

Menu was a bit strange - just not our thing, but others seem happy looking at the reviews. Waiter was overtly flirting with the owner, which was creepy. Wouldn’t rush back.

We chose this restaurant as I’m vegetarian and I’d read online they had veggie options. It’s obviously popular as it was full. We’d arrived in Nerja straight from Granada where there are a lot of excellent options for vegetarians and really good value. In comparison,...More
