Great Food and Friendly Ambience!
Came across this little treasure by accident. Tucked away beside the Hotel Jimesol on Calle Chaparil, this is a true Irish pub with a veritable Irish proprietor, Martin, who hails from Cork City. I was told that the Chef, Sharron, had been on board since the beginning of May so I didn't really expect much (I was there mid-May). Was I wrong! Her tapas is excellent...some of the best I'd had since I arrived in Nerja. She also makes her own vinaigrettes which are light and flavorful. All her portions are generous and well presented. The ingredients were very fresh. I ordered the fish n' chips and expected to be served a greasy meal. Wrong again! The batter (made with Guinness) was crisp and light and the chips were also crisp and were straight from the spud and not the freezer! Desserts looked very tasty, but I'll have to try them on my next trip. Sharron's enthusiasm and passion for food and her vibrant personality combined with Martin's quiet warmth and friendliness make this little pub a must place to dine and enjoy the chat and music. The pub also caters to Irish weddings with sit-down or buffet style meals. With advance notice, they will also serve breakfast for small groups or a crowd. I liked the energy and the friendly, comfortable ambience of the place. Friends and strangers alike would walk in off the street to a warm welcome. Dined there three times and was very pleased with each meal. Thank you, Martin and Sharron! Have to say the Fish n' Chips. I was so surprised by the light, crispy batter and that the chips were real potatoes. Had tapas on two occasions and loved it both times.
