Delicious food, great value, nice casual location

We came here for dinner, the lady working there was very friendly & spoke perfect English. We had the menu (soup, 4 tapas, dessert & drink for 10 Euros), which meant we could sample lots of different dishes. The banana curry was amazing, apparently it's one of the favourites with regulars.

Excellent vegetarian meal - one of the best I had in Andalucia during my vacation. Me and my friend chose 9 different sorts and shared them and they wer ALL delicious. The white wine was also very nice. Young woman at the desk was friendly and polite. Location was good too, just next to Merced.

Just off plaza de la merced.It may be tiny but with good weather they have tables outside. 4 vegan tapas I think was just under 6 euro.Lets see I had tarka dhal,veg curry,soya chilli and aubergine.each dish had its own delicious flavour.They also have wine and organic beers. Highly recommended

I ate here with two friends a couple of months ago when I first moved to Málaga. We each had a big plate of mixed salads and tasted each others'. They were all tasty, but some were scrumptious! I also had a mini carrot cake which was good, but a little heavy after over-indulging on the salads. I haven't eaten... More

During my week in Spain, I was lucky enough to come to El Piano twice. It's located on a pedestrian-only street with lots of bars and cafés near the Picasso museum. Both times there was a line of local people who were ordering take-out. I took the "menu" deal both times, and was pleasantly surprised that the options are changed... More
