Chiringuito Mauri is at the western end of El Playazo beach in Nerja and is open all year round. It is a friendly place with quite a spacious interior and a large garden area with tables and, when necessary, suitable shade. Very nice place to relax.
I had two tapas, a manchego cheese with bread and some boquerones, both delicious. There is a barbecue area where they prepare a big paella, hams and sardines on open fires. They also do ‘regular’ meals and you can reserve for large groups. Highly recommended and certainly won’t break the bank.
