Excellent, Bring Cash

Had an excellent meal consistent with prior reviews. One detail I had forgotten, and which is very important, is the restaurant does not accept credit cards. I had a moment of panic, but had just enough to cover the bill. For our party of 3, €75, and I think about €25 per person is about right if... read more

Having had our fill of tapas on previous nights we needed a meat and veg dinner and this place was fine. They offer a variety of steak cuts, we tried the flank and rump steak and both were of very good flavour, the flank was a little tough but very good and the rump was excellent. The grilled vegetables and... More

A tiny well decorated place with Argentinian grill. I liked using radios & typing machines as decor. Expect focus on high protein. Flank steak was one of the best rare cooked steaks I have had. Delicious chorizo, have it with no addition, so you could enjoy the taste. They open after 20:15.

El Farolito is literally round the corner from the Hotel Del Pintor (where we stayed). So glad we booked a table as we were walking past early last Saturday evening. We arrived at 9pm and it was pretty quiet - by the time we left it was packed to the rafters inside and out. The menu is small (brilliant) we... More

The wife really fancied a steak on our last weekend in Malaga, and I came across this one not too far from where we were staying from reviews on tripadvisor. We arrived about 830 on the Saturday night, all tables outside in use or reserved, but inside was empty barring a couple more reserved signs, so we choose a table... More

A small restaurant on a quiet street off Plaza de Uncibay in the centre of Malaga with a rustic feel and a definite focus on the food. The menu is small but all of the dishes are carefully prepared with quality ingredients but steak is the star of the show. We ate here twice during our stay, the first time... More
