One of the best places we ate at during our Sevilla - Cordoba - Granada - Malaga tour

It gives you the impression of being a restaurant mostly for tourists, and it probably is, but the tapas are nonetheless divine. Excellent, excellent, excellent!

We had the the mojito's. Liked the spicy topping very much. We didn't foresee it would make the world spin already after one glass :-) So after the four tapas, which were great(!) we ended with the pear tart and Marocon tea. If I knew this excists back at home I would visit very very often!! By the way...great staff!

I visited this place around 8 times to work. It's an excellent place for that with a nice view on one of the best squares in Malaga. Beside great wifi :) all the food and drinks on the menu are really good! The staff was very friendly, especially Valentin. I'll definitely come back here if I visit Malaga again.

First thing we noticed was that there were a lot of veggie tapas. The service was good. The food was good and it was cozy sitting on a terrace at the Plaza de la Merced.

We live in malaga and we used to go to la plaza. Our last visit was last week, when after asking for our regular drinks : beer and no alcoholic beer for me, because I'm breastfeeding , they brought over a little bottle of no alcoholic beer. Not the one that they used to serve. That one was another brand... More

We were in this restaurant very briefly one year previously whilst on a tapas tour and wanted to try it out this time for a full meal. The location is nice, being situated on the plaza Mercredi where the Picasso statue is. It has to be pointed out though that this area is also frequented by lots of street musicians... More

There are plenty of restaurants in Malaga, and they all look good. However, it was the picture of the garlic prawns sizzling in an earthenware dish that swayed me and I was not disappointed. We had the best seafood paella we've eaten, the garlic prawns were everything I'd hoped for and a goat's cheese and apple salad was a refreshing... More
