Turry on Plaza La Marina, Nerja, is a great little tapas bar with a nice terrace and, if you have kids, there is a play area only a few metres away. I had the lasagne as my tapa today – had it before and was impressed, so thought a revisit was in order. Delicious.
Cafe El Barrio in calle El Barrio, Nerja, has been quite a popular little bar ever since it opened, attracting a lot of passing trade as well as regulars for breakfasts, tapas or larger meals. It s quite a small bar area but has a reasonable sized terrace on the street, sheltered during inclement weather.
Visitors – a good excuse (if one was ever needed) to indulge in a little Tapas Run and we started off our merry jaunt at El Redondo – The Round Bar – in calle Gloria.
La Bodega de Antonia is located at the beginning of calle Carabeo in Nerja and replaced the former Los Barriles, home of the ‘chorizo infierno’.
El Puente, on the right of the Puente Viejo (Old Bridge) in Nerja, has always been a great place for tapas, as well as for meals – they do a very good menu del dia. And it most certainly still is!
The Round Bar – El Redondo – in calle Gloria, Nerja, has always been popular. On Sunday, possibly also due to the Dia del Pedal, it was absolutely packed.
La Bodeguilla on calle Antonio Millón, Nerja, may only be a small bar, but it has always had a large array of delicious tapas on offer. It does have a street terrace with barrels as tables.
It has been quite popular in other towns and cities for a while, but has only fairly recently come to Nerja. It is the ‘Bucket of Beer’.
Stopped off at the Round Bar in calle Gloria, Nerja, for a quick beer and a tapa. I thought this particular salad looked refreshing, and it was.
Tapas (derived from the Spanish verb tapar, ‘to cover’) are very much a social institution in Spain, a regular part of everyday life.
