Au Petit Paris
The Michelin Guide has recommended Au Petit Paris every year since 2012. The small, almost retro decorated restaurant is most definitely French, with black and white photographs from Paris adjourning the walls.
Au Petit Paris is run by Alain and Francoise. The food is outstanding. Traditional French cuisine at its best. Ingredients are seasonal and locally sourced. Every dish is loving prepared, with as Alain states ‘the difference being in the sauces.’
The sauces of classical French cuisine are world famous and Alain does them justice. Combined with fresh and locally grown ingredients, the results are spectacular. Au Petit Paris is the place to come if looking for a quiet, romantic and unforgettable dinner.

Sekai Japanese Restaurant
Hearty German food and large portions are what you'll find at Stephan's Wirtshaus. A unmistakably German restaurant situated at the corner of Calle Málaga and Calle Doctor Fleming. The food, beers and service are great. The theme is most definitely Bavarian, even the waiters are kitted out in Lederhosen. Price/quality is fantastic and the restaurant does get busy. Reservations are recommended during the summer months.
Recommended - all the German classics, sausages with Sauerkrautsour (sour cabbage), the steaks and German beers.
Opening times and address - Plaza Doctor Fleming, Calle Malaga, Nerja. Tel. 680 933 357.
Lan Sang Restaurant
Lan Sang specialises in traditional Lao and Thai cuisine. The food is fantastic and offers some unusual dishes. Thai cuisine doesn't need any introduction and is far more popular and recognized than Laotian. In general, Laotian cuisine is spicier, with a healthy combination of roasted fresh chili paste and fermented shrimp paste; flavored with galangal, lemongrass and Laotian fish sauce; sweet and spicy sausages and all combined with locally sourced ingredients.
Situated right in the centre of Nerja, it’s been one of the most popular restaurants for years. So much so, that they have just opened a new Thai rice and noodle bar next to Burriana beach - WaiWai Wok and an adjoining bar/restaurant Yuu Taley (which literally means "at the beach" in Lao and Thai), serving Lao inspired tapas and sushi.
Recommended - the Larb Salad - a Laotian style chicken with dry chili and lemongrass, Muu Curry Deang Red - pork curry with sweet basil, vegetables and coconut milk, and the Pad Thai - spicy stir fry noodles with chicken, pork or seafood with spring onion, peanuts and bean sprouts.
Opening times and address - between 13.00 and 15.00 for lunch and dinner is from 19.30 until 23.00. The restaurant is closed for Sunday lunch and all day Monday. Calle Málaga, 12, Edifico Cuatro Caminos, Nerja. Tel. 952 528 053 / 652 055 887. Website.
