Malaga was incredibly busy on the Saturday night we went to El Gastronauta, a booking was essential as they were having to turn people away. We ate the tapas - croquettas, pil-pil, skewered chicken and the baby squid - all of it great, followed up by the brownie. The waiting staff really helped to make this experience as they were funny, attentive and kind. Good food, busy restaurant.

The hotel recommended this for the best paella. It is a small quaint place. Food was excellent, service was friendly and attentive. It was a wonderful meal and dining experience . One of our wait staff made the delicious brownie dessert.
I knew from the start when I saw the menu I would love this place. Their motto is: Life taken easy tastes better.

The restaurant is small, with a limited menu, mostly focused on tapas (with a twist) and paella. The food is tasty, the service is very good and prices are reasonable. Victor and his wife work in tandom managing the restaurant and it shows; they keep the busy place running at a nonstop pace. In addition to the seafood paella main course, we had several tapas to start including a creative and delicious grilled eggplant topped with goat cheese and tomato jam.

Note: if you don't make an advance reservation you will have a difficult time getting a table.

My partner and I were in the mood for paella and found El Gastronauta by their great reviews on google. This small restaurant did not disappoint - it's cosy, has attentive and funny waiters (hi Miguel!), and the food was delicious! We had the seafood squid ink paella and pil pil prawns.

Will definitely come again!
