The restaurant is in a quiet street just off the main drag. We arrived early in the evening at about 7pm, so it wasn't that busy. The staff were very courteous and helpful. The food was of a good quality, and elegantly presented. We particularly enjoyed the meatballs - a cut above the average.

Set back from all the usual tourist restaurants. La Cosmopolita has a casual atmosphere which is perfect to escape to at the end of a busy day. The highlight for me was the food. Unbelievable taste and so many options. My husband and I chose to dine there 3 times in a week as the food was so good. We... More

Modern tapas, but no messing and really good ingredients. The beef cheek was the best, but the tuna ran it close. I recommend the 4 tapas for 10 Euro. Very pleasant staff too.

Came here for a quick stop off for a drink. 2 glasses of really nice wine and olives for €5. Bargain! Child friendly too.

Friendly and attentive staff. Food tasty but from a relatively limited menu more suited to lunch than dinner.

We went for dinner on the strength of a review from The Telegraph and we're very disappointed. The menu was very limited and unimaginative and we struggled to find dishes we wanted and we are quite cosmopolitan eaters. It doesn't help that some dishes are not translated in an unappetising way for example the little casserole was called 'stew' on... More

A bit difficult to find - but then everything in old Malaga is! But well worth it when you get there. Assuredly Spanish food, but with interesting twists to many of the dishes that make it a memorable experience. Friendly and efficient service. Highly recommended.

Perhaps not the easiest place to find but worth the effort. The food is an interesting modern interpretation of traditional local dishes. There is no menu del dia but the prices are reasonable on the a la carte. The staff were helpful and efficient. The wine list was excellent but the food is the star. Try to have a selection... More

I loved this place. Simply great food, nice atmosphere and helpful staff though we had to struggle with language issues but this was also fun. The food is Spanish but very contemporary. I visited 3 times on a 10 day trip.
