We came to this place wanting some good Spanish tapas. And they did not disappoint! All the dishes we ordered were good, especially the scampi. Som of the dishes had a bit of a "modern twist" on them, but nothing bad about that. The staff...More

This is not just a “tapas” restaurant, but a restaurant which allow the choice of many dishes as tapas, or half-rations, or full rations, and a wide variety of very creative dishes, fish, meat and vegetarian. A nice, cozy atmosphere but buzzing with activity and...More

These people are obviously running more than one place in this quarter (vineria, taberna,tapas), so this is about the Meson, which is the more formal restaurant. But not so very formal, rather cozy. We spent a nice hour for a rich tapas dinner with charming...More

Without reservation kinda got "kicked out" after an hour (buitengekeken), tuna not raw enough (after explicitly asking for raw tuna), goat cheese salad was nice (no fresh berries), stew was a little dry. A good restaurant, but not worth the 4.6 stars it's getting :)

Went there on a Sunday and even at 17:30 it was full. Booking advisable. The food was excellent. We dined on squid, Argentinian beef, salads and creme caramel. EUR50 for two people plus wine. Lovely staff. Higher end dining in Malaga but definitely worth trying.

My wife and I treated ourselves to a meal here, and thoroughly enjoyed it. After a week of eating pretty average food in Malaga’s centre, this was a level above, and certainly the best meal we had in Malaga. A fabulous spinach salad and great...More

This is a proper Spanish restaurant, visited twice and both times had the most amazing meals. The food, atmosphere and the really friendly staff can't be faulted. Really busy place away from the main tourist streets with a lot of locals enjoying wine and tapas.I'd...More

Hi there! The restaurant will sure be open in August and it's very central, perfect for a special occasion. But please be sure to reserve at least a couple of weeks before the event (maybe not three months, though) because... More
