Ruta de la Tapa throughout May!

For the 2nd year now, the “Ruta de la Tapa” (Tapa Route or Tapa Crawl) takes place throughout May where you can enjoy a beer and a tapa in 17 different participating tapa bars in Nerja for just €1.80. In pounds that’s just £1.30 at the moment.  See below for a full list of the places you can crawl to…

Tapas at La Andaluza

La Andaluza in Plaza La Marina is a fairly new addition to the tapas and restaurant scene in Nerja and markets itself as a ´low cost’ establishment.

Gambas at La Marina

La Marina in Plaza La Marina, Nerja, remains one of the best fish tapas bars in town, hence it is usually packed at several times during the day.

Tapas at Pio Pio

Popped in to Pio Pio for the first time and I must say it is an excellent tapas bar. It is located at the top of calle San Miguel, Nerja, opposite both Plaza Cantarero and the Bus Station.

Tapas at Cafe Paris

The Cafe Paris in calle Chaparil, Nerja, opened at the end of June 2014. It is fairly spacious inside and has a small street terrace, invariably full.

Tasty tapas at La Bodeguilla

La Bodeguilla in calle Antonio Millón, Nerja, remains one of the best tapas bars in town. Great range of dishes, friendly atmosphere, good terrace with the barrels and real value for money. Tapas plus olives plus small beer, €1.90.

Mushrooms at Jaime’s

Hadn’t been to Jaime’s in calle Jaén, Nerja, for a long time so decided to remedy the situation, as one does. I had a very tasty mushroom, onion, ham and garlic tapa. Small beer and a tapa, €1.50, so about average these days.

Tapas at the enlarged La Taberna

Nothing much has changed in La Taberna really, except for being larger after taking over the old Sardina Alegre and prices going up slightly. Same friendly service.

Bar Alameda reopens

Bar Alameda in calle Jaén, Nerja, has had quite a few owners in the past couple of years and has just reopened with the latest set.

Tapas at Taberna Torero

Down a flight of stairs near the bus stop at the junction of calle Chaparil and calle Antonio Millón in Nerja is a lovely little tapas bar called Taberna Torero.
