Playa & Sol: Best Restaurant at Burriana Beach
It’s been awhile, but now it’s here; my next restaurant recommendation! This restaurant quickly became one of our favorites here in Nerja, so it would be almost a crime not to tell about it to you. If you want to sit in one of the most picturesque restaurants in Nerja and eat the very best food, with lovely service, then this place is made for you!
Playa & Sol (Paseo de Burriana, Burriana Beach, 29780 Nerja, Spain)
If you are feeling hungry after sunbathing and swimming at the Burriana Beach, but don’t feel having those traditional Pasta Bolognese or Minute Steak with Fries (that almost all beach restaurants are offering!), keep reading. At day time, Restaurant Playa & Sol offers to you Snack Bar-kind of menu, which includes for example delicious light wraps, a wide range of fresh salads, pizzas and sandwiches. And if you aren’t hungry but fancy more something refreshing, I can highly suggest their fruit juices, drinks and cocktails, both with and without alcohol.
If you are nearby in the evening, you should check their Dinner Menu. It has been praised as both of it’s fish and meat dishes, and they also have vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. You may notice that the food is more pricey than in most restaurants located by the beach, but believe me, it’s well worth it! Just remember that some specialty dishes are better ordered in advance, particularly the traditional and delicious Paella. And one thing that is definitely worth of mentioning is their portion sizes; you are guaranteed to be sated and satisfied when you leave here! You may want to share the starter with someone, so that you also have room for the main course 😉 .
The interior of this restaurant differs from the other beach restaurants as they have a large wooden decked, instead of the usual sand floors. Gives a bit neater image of this place, or what do you think? But don’t you worry, no need to dress up there 😉 . If you’re looking for something more laid-back, you can always choose cozy sofas and armchairs instead of normal tables, and just enjoy some cold drinks and snacks there. They also have high chairs for little ones and the staff have always been really kind to our son. And couple more words about the staff; they are very attentive and efficient, service minded and always see to what you want. Therefore, they get just praises from me!
Unfortunately, I don’t have first-hand experience of their desserts, because I always choose ice cream. I know, boring choice, but what can you do if you’re an ice cream lover <3. But I've heard nothing but praises about their sweet crepes, so I'll promise to try those on next time!
