4.5

If you only visit one restaurant in Nerja, this must be it.

This charming restaurant and garden are the in-house dining facilities of [node:170202]. If you want creative, Mediterranean-inspired food, made using local, seasonal ingredients this is the place for you. Don’t just take my word for it; those lovely people at Michelin think it’s pretty special too.

Food and drink

The tantalising à la carte menu has gem after gem. For a starter, I normally choose a walnut and pear salad with blue cheese dressing; for mains I’d go for the traditional Spanish dish of confit pork cheeks, cauliflower purée, asparagus and a Malaga wine reduction; and for dessert, a liquid centre chocolate cake served with coconut ice cream. There’s an extensive, and not-overly priced, cellar too.

Ambience

People are genuinely excited to be dining here so there’s always a real buzz in the air. The decoration is simple with exposed stone walls and beams, brightly painted walls, and large terracotta tiles. The tables are a little close together for my liking. If you can, opt for the garden as it has wonderful views down to the beach.

Service

The staff are so good at their job you feel you’ve known them for years.

Location

It's in a quiet backstreet in the heart of the old town.

Price advice

A meal from the à la carte menu is about 45 euros a head. There’s an additional set menu if you prefer, and the wine is good value.
