La Bottega

This family run restaurant focuses on a genuine food offer together with a wide selection of wines from all over the world. We space from salads and homemade burgers at lunchtime, to the juicy sea-bream fillet and tender beef eye fillet at dinnertime. Our Italian chef also recommends our pasta dishes. We like to close the night with our signature gin&tonic: Nordes gin with camomile and ginger!!

Great Lunch in an open air enviroment

Quickly got a table and service. My daughter liked her pizza, the wife her salad, and I my croquet's / Patatas Bravas. Beer was cold and a very relaxing lunch.

Excellent as always

- 5 / 5 stars -24 hours ago

Excellent food and friendly, attentive staff. We have visited La Bottega as a family every summer since it opened. It is our favourite restaurant in Nerja. The food is excellent with a varied menu. The owners are really friendly and work extremely hard as the restaurant is always full. Book ahead to ensure a table. All their staff are friendly and the service is excellent. Would thoroughly recommend. See you next summer!

Have been to La Bottega several years running now. Me and my partner went the first year they opened and my have they expanded!Food is always top quality. Really quick service. Make sure you book a table first as they are super busy!Some new staff since our last visit but still amazing. Don't know the name of our server but be was a true gentlemen. Had a beard and impeccable customer service skills.We will be back again and again!

First visit but

- 3 / 5 stars -2 days ago

Not our type of restaurant. We visit Bottega on a Thursday and there was full house and it seams very popular. The waiter was smiling then she look at us but then turned her face away the smile was gone. The food was dissent and it was large portions. But price, quality and service together we will not visit Bottaga agin.

The best Sangria ever!

- 4 / 5 stars -1 week ago

We visited the southern part of Spain recently and this restaurant has the best Sangria around the region. The food is fusion but it suited us perfectly for the taste. This is pretty much top rated among all the restaurants we are. Ceviche, pasta and fish we ordered and they were all very tasty. The only downside is that finding the parking space around that area is pretty bad.

Best restaurant in Nerja?

- 5 / 5 stars -1 week ago

This restaurant had such great reviews that we had to try it and were not disappointed. The food and the way it’s presented is fabulous, and the service was attentive. So on to the meal. Starting with the drinks and an interesting array of gin options. The starters should be shared as they offer a lovely selection. Good range of mains, and home made desserts. Make sure you book.

Great Food, Great Service and Friendly Staff

- 5 / 5 stars -1 week ago

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and given it had such great reviews we thought we would try it out. The restaurant itself was very busy but we were sat down at a table and advised we had 90 minutes as it was booked later on, this wasn't an issue. The service was great and staff incredibly friendly and helpful, food arrived quickly and again was beautiful - would definitely recommend and would definitely go again.

Very Good but not amazing.

- 4 / 5 stars -2 weeks ago

It took at least 6 emails to get a table at the Restaurant however saying that everyone was answered quickly and a table was secured . Our table for 4 on a Sunday evening was well positioned and we were greeted with a friendly and attentive manner . The food was good ... not amazing , we have all had better , however the attention to detail was excellent and service impeccable. The steaks were served pre sliced to the table which IMHO reduces their flavour they were tasty . The Bill wasn’t cheap but we didn’t expect it to be so. All in all it did what said on the Tin and all the Tripadvisor reviews stated .i wouldn’t rush back , it’s probably superb for Nerja and its plethora of Touristy . Sizzle and ping restaurants but in the big scheme of things it’s a restaurant that does what it should do . Cooks tasty food and serves it well .

Nice, but certainly not the best

- 3 / 5 stars -2 weeks ago

Dined here as a family with children. Booked by phone to be told no availability for almost a week. Upon arriving, there were a number of unreserved tables available.Service was attentive and friendly, menu good and reasonably priced. Atmosphere was a little cramped as it’s a small restaurant with not a lot of space.We liked it here, but it wasn’t worth waiting a week for a table, and there are so many identical restaurants in Nerja offering similar fare at a far reduced cost with a better atmosphere and ambiance.A nice place for dinner, but certainly not number one in Nerja. 6 out of ten for me.

Excellent (again!)

- 5 / 5 stars -2 weeks ago

This was our 3rd visit to this lovely restaurant in Nerja. Food great, service very attentive. We had Tomahawk Pork Steak, Fillet Steak and Baby chicken - all delicious. If going in high season, I would recommend booking a week in advance to ensure you get the day and time you want as very busy.

EXCELLENT

- 5 / 5 stars -3 weeks ago

We had never been to this restaurant before, and we were not disappointed we were very lucky they managed to fit us in. The food was out if this world, the staff were absolutely brilliant and kind and helpful. I am gluten free and the range of food they do is amazing and they were very caring and kind, I would recommend everyone try at least once but book a table because they are very popular. We have booked to go again.

Was staying to close to Nerja and decided to book a table - it did not disappoint the food and service was amazingThe night we visited they were short staffed but it didn't show - they were very attentive and delivered a first class serviceDefinitely recommend booking before you go as the first night we tried we couldn't get a table and the there were many people turning up without a reservation
