In some respects our third tapas bar of our Nerja "tapas run" marathon was the best. What I particularly liked was that the good quality tapas arrived for us all to share and this meant we all got a taste of everything. Of course I know some people are a bit squeamish about sharing food so you might try and ask for a solo plate if you are. Me? I just see it as an opportunity to strengthen my immunity system. The other good thing about eating free tapas is that you receive a sample of something you probably wouldn't have dreamed of ordering. As I'm a bit of a foodie (lots of it has passed through my lips over the years) I was in foodie heaven. Our food at La Posta Iberica comprised of a nice dollop of an unusual but lovely (really it was) cold fishy mash, bean salad, some super anchovies on toast (my favourite) and some tasty mashed pumpkin. I felt it all went well together and I think everyone was very happy with the selection. The food was a little heavy on the vegetarian but I suspect this was only because one of our party is a veggie (and one of her first Spanish phrases learnt was how to ask for "no meat"). The wine at the La Posada Iberica too was very nice and our 4 glasses and free Tapas came in at 11 Euros for the four of us, which I felt was a veritable bargain given that the tapas we received was getting towards a full starter portion. The La Posada Iberica (literally Spanish Inn) is another traditionally furnished bar where the predominant theme is dark brown. It's not really my styling but we were quite content stood at a high table with our tapas and the place certainly looked and felt clean enough. There was full table seating for those wanting a full meal. The downside to the restaurant came with the rather grumpy owner who served our food without a smile or a word. Perhaps he felt his English wasn't good enough (although our dining companions speak pretty good Spanish), but we let the moment pass.The La Posada Iberica is another essential pit stop for anyone undertaking the "Nerja Tapas Run" as the food is free, plentiful and with some unusual choices to sample.
