Great food experience, not expensive

This restaurant was a great surprise. When we entered it was totally empty (21.30!), but when we left around 0.00, it was quite full.

We went there because it was highly recommended in tripadvisor. We arrived at 15:00, it is quite busy. It took almost 15 min until the waiter finally came to take our order. The waitresses were nice enough but they cannot speak any English. The food was not impressive at all, and the most irritating thing is the order came SO... More

Spotted this little gastrobar in Tripadvisor. Located some 2 kilometers from the center but really worth a visit, or two like we did. Had lunch both on Friday and Sunday. Not many other customers which was kind of a pity really given the quality of food. Friendly service even if there were minor language issues due to our poor Spanish.... More

Gastrobar Aire isn’t located in the heart of the city. Due to the positive reviews we decided to give it a try. When we arrived the interior immediately took our attention. It’s modern but yet obsolete. We didn’t like it. We ordered steak tartare with truffles and some tapas chosen by the chef. We had fried croquets with shrimp and... More

We went here on the basis of other positive reviews and as it was very close to our hotel. Everybody's tastes differ of course, but for us this restaurant seemed to think nice presentation justified serving tiny portions at non-tiny prices. The 'patatas bravas' we ordered came with a twist - they were half of a baby new potato with... More

Even in Malaga, if you are looking for a meal after 11pm, you are likely to find the chef heading out of the door, or get staff stacking the tables around you while you eat. On a summer Thursday, after midnight, Aire was still buzzing. We had a variety of tapas and when the staff realised we were sharing everything,... More

My Spanish friends live in Malaga and they took me to this restaurant and it was fantastic. I would recommend if you go at the weekend that you book a table as it is very popular...we ate on the terrace which was lovely. The food was amazing, especially the prawn croquettes and the tandoori chicken. The welcome gazpacho was also... More

Excellent host and enjoyable evening tasting local food and wines. Can recommend this for small groups. Menu could have included more savoury items but this is up to the individual taste.

One of the best restaurants in Malaga, Nice atmosphere and better food. We had recommended and so I discovered, that were not coming in the guides.

The restaurant located within a former residence dating from the end of the 19th century and lovely refurbished respecting the traditional architectural styles makes it an excellent choice when in Malaga. We enjoyed the Mediterranean cuisine and the excellent wines from the region. Our favourites were the ‘Croquetas de Gambas Pil Pil’ and the ‘Ensalada de espinacas’.
