try the oxtail meatbals

Nice restaurant in the centre of Malaga. The Iberico pork was served in a salt crust. Our waiter removed the salt and sliced the meat. The pork was very tender and well cooked, and served with potatoes. More exiting were the Andalucian oxtail meatballs. Delicious and very well prepared. I would... read more

We appreciated that this restaurant worked to accommodate our large group with little notice. Its location in the center of town and its setting are both very nice. We are English speakers with some working Spanish and unfortunately, the English menu was extremely unclear (one item is called "Handyman Handyman Against", which is obviously not descriptive of anything) and although...

This place was our first restaurant in Malaga and did not disappoint us. The food was very good : duck foie gras with lentils, chicken and pork croquettes. I could have eaten this all the night and it made laugh the waiter so much! Prices are not abusive and you can feel that people there are passionate about what they... More

We came in for a small bite to eat and were not disappointed. The menu is small but has some great dishes. While you choose what you want to eat, you get served some amazing olives and Parmesan cheese. We had a very tender iberico pork chateaubriand, which was cut at the table and served with very flavorsome sliced potatoes.... More

The food at Cosmoplita is totally divine!! The ambience is extremely pleasant and the service, though warm and friendly is also efficient and knowledgeable. The menu changes partly every day depending on what the chef spotted at the market. We adored the cep mushrooms en paillotte with amazing iberico ham but the absolute standout dish for us was the prawn... More

Second time we've eaten at this restaurant and, after the first time, made a conscious effort to seek out a repeat opportunity when we returned to Malaga. Great location in the centre of town and great mix of indoor and outdoor seating for diners. Service was welcoming, helpful and attentive without being overbearing. Some really good attention to detail but... More

After walking rounds and rounds because we were trying to find a restaurant in Malaga, but there we so many, we came across this lovely looking restaurant called, La Cosmopolita. We saw one family sitting outside and inside were no people, it was quite early for a dinner: 8.00 PM. But we asked if we could take a table inside,... More

Fantastic lunch today in a restaurant that looks not typical of Malaga but more Provence or a French gite. The food is fantastic and different and the staff are really good and take great joy in telling you all about the food and how it is prepared and cooked. I have some really good ideas for my own dishes now.... More
