We managed to book a table for Thursday evening, and had a fabulous meal. This small restaurant steps up to the mark not only with the tasty and well presented food but also the knowledgeable and friendly staff. I would say that this year’s visit was even better that our previous experience last year. Keep up the great work - one of our favourite places to eat in Malaga.

This is definitely the best restaurant in Malaga. The food is the best in town, worth every penny. It's small but the dishes are made with love❤

The food was simply amazing. This was the only restaraurant on our trip that was definitely worth coming back.

We ate here twice. Both times the food was delicious. Service was fantastic, the staff were kind, funny, and spoke english very well.

The prices were also very affordable. starters, mains and drinks for two for about 30-40e.

Make a reservation, especially if you are planning to eat around 21.00-22.00, as the restarant is quite small and popular.

Highly recommended by the three Finns, who wanted to pay more than the bill stated.

This hole in the wall restaurant offers delicious food (specifically an awesome seafood paella)! Make a reservation if you can because there are limited tables and the food is worth it ;) Our server spoke great english and was super friendly - He told us about certain areas of Spain he's been and discussed worthwhile places etc. (which we found helpful as this was the first city we stopped at on our trip). He ended the dinner with a free sweet wine "cheers" - Thanks El Gastronauta!

Very small restaurant, but very very good food.
We didn't book but the owner gave us a table. Very friendly environment, and the owner (waiter) was doing every thing.
We ordered a guacamole. It was incredible. And a spanish tortillas, nice.
The paella with fish was amazing. The rice was cooked perfectly, the fish was fresh. Maybe they need to use less salt for every thing but I suggest to try it.

Thank LuckHappy
