Whilst wandering around Malaga on the 14th December we spotted this restaurant which was advertising a large variety of tapas of varying sizes. As this is just up our street, we settled down outside for a leisurely lunch. A VERY excellent red wine (ribera crianza) was 3 euros per copa and a cana of beer was 1.50E. We chose 3... More

In one of many quaint streets of Malaga I found this little bodega and was happy I did. Not fancy but really delicious tapas in the middle of the old city - you really enjoy the history and architecture and the food. The restaurant was founded in 1880. That alone speaks of the value you get here

Beer good. Wine good. Shellfish great. A bit slow however. Although does it really matter? Razorclams are amazing. Sweet. Fresh. Garlicy. The vista is great too. Do yourselves a favour and learn a little Spanish too. It goes a long way.

Nothing fancy here - just good food served quickly in a bar environment. Bodegas Quitapenas is the major wine producer of the Malaga region, producing table wine and fortified wine in large quantities for largely domestic consumption in Andalucia. Their finos and PX dulce wines compete head to head with sherries from Jerez and wines from Montilla, but you would... More

The food was absolutely disgusting and actually quite expensive. A pile of anchovies, fried and totally unseasoned,tasted of nothing. It was indistinguishable from the aubergine, which was deep fried and had a chewy, unpleasant texture. Prawns were mushy and suspect. Service was unfriendly and they even had the cheek to charge for the bread, which was put on the table... More

Excellent tapas serviced efficiently. There is nothing to dislike about this venue unless you are looking for a leisurely meal, it's fast tapas turnaround.

If your looking for fancy cutlery and smart surroundings you will be disappointed but for truly lovely fish, cooked fresh , and with a good choice this is the place. It gets very busy around 2:30 and is a favourite with the locals. Always a good sign. I have visited twice and enjoyed the meal both times. I will return.... More

This reviews the one in the new port, so you would imagine it would be great, but no it was truly awful. We went on a sunny Sunday afternoon hoping for some nice drinks and a bit of tapas. Got shown to a table and left with one menu between 4. Waiter came over to take drinks order and we... More
