Frequently asked questions:

There are always doubts about the best places to eat. Here are some questions resolved.

Do I have to reserve a table?

In some restaurants you have to reserve a table, we recommend you make a reservation before or arrive early.

Full paella or paella portion?

This is a dilemma, each restaurant has its style.

  • Restaurants that offer paella portions: in Nerja we can find restaurants that serve paella portions. The restaurant makes various large or giant paellas and diners can order portions. It is what is called a “Ration of paella”, paella for 1 person, paella plate or rice plate. It is not necessary to order a large paella. Sometimes it is better to order paella dishes.
  • Restaurants to order complete paella: Here the concept is different. Diners order paella for 2 people, paella for 4 or 6 people. A paella is requested for the number of people. And they put the complete paella pan or pan on the table. We serve directly to the plate.
    Each restaurant will work in a different way.

Do I have to order the paella?

It is best to book. Nowadays it is better to book according to the number of people. Each restaurant has a different protocol.

Restaurants specializing in giant paellas it will not be necessary to reserve paella. They have portions or rations for you 🙂
