Average Food, Friendly Wait Staff

We stumbled upon this restaurant just after arriving in Malaga and looking for a place for lunch. We found most of the food average, although we did really enjoy the tomato, mozzarella and avocado salad. The rest of the food, some light tapa (patatas bravas and sausages) were just average.

I had caught a cold and needed a light tapas dinner with hot tea. The wait staff was so accommodating! My husband had the Iberian ham salad (lots of ham), I had a mixed salad. Both were just fine. Atmosphere was cozy and romantic. The desserts, though, were outstanding. I was feeling much, much better by the end of the... More

Was food at Strachan to die for? no! We still enjoyed it, it was tasty but i think you can find better places in Malaga. Staff was very friendly and prices aren't very high.

Walked in off the street and this was a very nice restaurant with friendly staff. A lovely warm brownie with ice cream for dessert topped off a nice meal.

Stopped into this restaurant by chance and was presently surprised. The food was great, portion size was good and the price was reasonable. The waiters spoke English and the atmosphere was nice and relaxed, I'd recommend.

Enjoyed a very fine dinner at Stracahan during our stay in Malaga last week.Having read a considerable number of travel books and online reviews of Malaga's culinary scene, Strachan is always up there and in our experience rightly so.We were offered a table 'al fresco' as per our preference, however it is essential that diners appreciate the lovely interior which...

We wandered around the alleys off the main shopping street and cam across this restaurant, my wife noticed they were offering a set lunch menu, but it was in Spanish. The waiter willingly translated it for us (they had no English versions of this menu) and we had a 3 course lunch of mixed salad, swordfish and pears in a... More

My wife and I dropped in to this establishment on a whim and was very glad that we did. The service was friendly and helpful especially as our limited English did not help. The various tapas that we had were excellent and we both agreed that the Calamares was the best dish. We had a bottle of the house wine... More

6 of us dined outside in a nice vibrant atmosphere. The fish and steaks dishes were excellent. Around €25 each for starters, mains, drinks. Well recommended, good service, quality, location.
