Nice little Argentinian steak place tucked up back street, ate outside but well impressed, skirt and flank steak excellent , tender and succulent. Waitress didn't speak much english but she got by helping us choose and was very pleasant. Only downside was the bread wasn't cooked enough, think they were bought in part cooked rolls and they were not done... More

Literally just left the restaurant and had to comment. If you want regular menu and regular people it's not for you. Menu quirky and small and owners are special. Let's just say 2 sausages and grilled veg never tasted so good. House Rioja brilliant value.Move out the comfort zone and experience!

I've been here many times and the quality is always superb. The food is relatively cheap and great value for money, especially if you order the steak! The staff are friendly and the restaurant has a real cosy atmosphere. Definitely a restaurant worth seeking out. But be careful after 10pm it does fill up quickly!

Booked this from reviews on TA. Very small inside, where you put your coats on a rack above your head like on a train ...... and staff do not speak english, but the female staff made a very good attempt at explaining everything on the menu to us to the point we all knew what she was explaining. Steak cooked... More

It is an small argentinian restaurant, now they have some tables in the street so there is more space. This is an excellent place if you have limited budget and love meat. I am from Malaga and usually come here with my friends. Baked chicken will surprise you!

A small place with maybe 10-12 tables with relaxed lighting and an exposed kichen area. The three staff/owners are all very pleasent and welcoming. The main issue for me was the very restricted menu. Only one steak cut (chorizo) and a cheese dish. No veggy options, so you're stuck if you have a non-meat/dairy eater with you. If only they... More

Nice little place tucked away on a side street. Service was nice and homely. Food is pretty average though, we ate most things but nothing very memorable. This for me is key. Cheers

Thank you very much for leaving us a comment. Did you try "Bife de chorizo"? El Farolito invites you to come back here and try it. Perhaps this might change your opinion of the restaurant. From Malaga, I wish you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! More
