This restaurant is a kitschy tourist trap. It's somewhat expensive for the small dishes it serves, the atmosphere is not existent, and you get better vibes at a McDonald's. It feels like a chain that was once good. It's packed with tourists, the bathroom has...More

One of my acquaintance recommended this place and she was right! This place is great. A tiny place with limited capacity so you need a reservation for sure. The food and the service was great. Highly recommended!

This was the best food I had in Malaga. Beautiful squid, lovely sea bass and a pork stew. All very tasty, nice service. Not cheap but good value for good quality.

This is quite a small restaurant..you'll need a reservation. We managed, quite serendipitously, to get a table without a booking, but that's another story. The food in here is really very good. The wine is excellent. The company we fell into that night was lovely.....More

We had 6-7 plates + lots of wine. 50E per person. Prices are reasonable. You can eat for 20E per person .... we weren't reasonable because it was so good.
