This restaurant serves great food, especially the pasta ! I had veal milanese and my partner had seafood pasta - both were very good. The wine suggestion was excellent and the atmosphere is very nice. Not as cheap as some of the others around but worth paying that little bit extra.

This restaurant is located on a street filled with tapa bars, so it's a nice change. The main dining room is not available until 9:45 pm, which is much later than normal, but there is a front area as you walk in with a few tables where you can be seated to eat at 8:00 pm. There were two servers... More

We have eaten here twice in one week, because we liked the food and the service (Maria!) very much. Creative dishes, excellent preparation and taste. Next time that we are in Malaga, we will for sure pay a visit to this excellent restaurant, and noteworthy, with affordable prices.

Went here one night around 10PM and it was about half full. We waited about 15 minutes before even our drink order was taken. We were about to leave when the server finally approached and took our order. The food was bad. My friends pizza was horrible. My wife ordered a specialty pasta. There were about four irregular pieces of... More

The restaurant looks inviting, the waitresses are very pleasant but the chef needs taking to one side and advising that TOO Much Salt is NOT good. Our starters were prawn tartar and veal rolls filled with cream cheese and topped with finely sliced red onion and water cress, what a great start. Sadly our pasta main meals were so salty... More

Go there if you ar tired of the traditional spanish food. A must have is the carpaccio of tenderloin the fresh ravioli of osso bucco with barolo sauce Vitello tonnato and the grapefruit salat with rucola and mozzarella. Before the starters they come with a little appetizer which was smoked cheese with fresh hearbs and homemade pate The only minus... More

If you want a break from Spanish food and want to go back to Spanish food again quickly, it is ideal location. More seriously told, although the food was ok, but the atmosphere (inside) and the service could be better to deserve a better rating.

This is no pizza parlour, this is fine italian dining. Excellent food, starters, mains and desserts. It was so good we decided to eat there again the next night, but it was closed, (Sunday), much disappointment. We will be back to Malaga later this year and we will definitely eat here. Lovely service, such nice staff, with an upmarket feel,... More

We stumbled on this place after growing tired of the local Spanish cuisine. It was so fantastic we went back the following night! The spag bol is fab, as is the veal - finish off with the panna cotta or Lingote (Spanish for Ingot which is a gorgeous chocolate dish). Local buskers stroll by playing everything from guitars to accordions... More
