Excellent staff very friendly and helpful. We had beautiful ham and cheese to start washed down with a cheeky house vino then fried fish , rosada a la plancha plus a delicious mixed salad . Perfecto . We will definitely return. And remember you only get what you pay for you may pay a little extra but well worth it.... More

I've eaten here several times now, every time there's been very good quality fresh fish and seafood, served well, at a sensible price. Normally we come at lunchtime, but last week we came for dinner and were just as pleased. You definitely need to book, as it's nicest to sit in the covered area outside.

Central, al la carte meals upstairs and tapas downstairs, all Spanish dishes don't expect tapas dishes as per UK these are much larger. Waiter good enough to advise when we had enough dishes. Good choice of fish dishes. Excellent service and very busy.

This restaurant was right next to our hotel, so we sort of fell into it and were not disappointed. Excellent service by attentive waiters. The grilled prawns were delicious as was the sole.

Overprice, good service but pompous waiters. Malaga has a plethora of restaurants and this is the one to skip. Food was tasteless, portion were small and not seasoned at all. We had 5 dishes for 4 people and nothing was out of the ordinary, I actually had to add salt to mine to make it taste somewhat decent. Tiramisu desert... More

I wonder how much longer places like Los Mellizos can survive. It is ideally located in the downtown dining hotspot. It serves terrific fish. It has pictures of food, which means it is Old School, but your plate will look exactly like the picture. The fish is fresh, expertly cooked and delicious; but that's the end of the story. This...

We ate here on our first night in Malaga at the recommendation of the hotel receptionist. We sat outside in the covered area, conveniently near a heater. Service was prompt and efficient. We ordered salad and a paella to share. The salad didn't come with any dressing (although you could mix your own from some plastic sachets of olive oil... More

Best Chipirrones in 3 days. After Málaga, Motril and Granada. All sea food and fish fresh. I would return. If you like not only meat ... go for it. Recommendible.

I went there for lunch, and I soon found out that it was very popular. Nearby businessmen came there, and I soon realized why. The fish and seafood seemed good and were good. The problem was that the waiters served well these businessmen, but others, like me, had to wait, wait and wait. Otherwise it had been much better experience.
