Eating out in Nerja
From the list of "Appropriate Themes" for "this" restaurant I could have ticked every one because the variety of eating places in Neja is so great.
Even 20 years ago there were dozens - - some said hundreds -of restaurants to choose from. We always looked for local and preferred Spanish owned and run.
Our very favourite was El Punte, on the old bridge across from Supersol supermarket - when it was a posh transport caff,with a bar for locals and a terrific value, everyday Spanish restaurant.According to one of the family it is still there (June 2009) but they did not go there this timeMore and more restaurants now seem to cater specifically to the Brits - many are British owned.
Several of the restaurants on Burriana Beach were excellent on a winter holiday for lunch - cheap and cheerful Salad with - whatever you chose. One of the beach restaurants used to do enormous paellas - always very popular for Sunday lunch. It was a way along to towards the end of the line of restaurants furthst from the town centre. In late summer and early autumn it was fun to eat there too but more crowded. And very crowded from June -September.
Another favourite was Merendero Moreno, Playa Burriana.
In town we liked best the following (all still in business,according toour daughter who recently returned from her 12th visit to Nerja)
Casa Luque, Plaza Cavana, 2, Elegant Spanish dining not cheap.
Marisquería la Marea, Plaza Cantarero. Good fish and sea food . Moderate prices+.
El Gato Negro, Calle Hernando de Carabeo, 19. Pasta and pizza.Moderate.
