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.

This is different from the traditional andalucian restaurants, more homelike atmosphere and a slightly experimental cuisine. The service is friendly but a little slow. The food was well made, fresh and tasty. Nice decor.

I ate at La Cosmopolita on New Year's Day 2014 on my last night in Malaga with my family. The service was good and the fact that we were encouraged to speak Spanish added to the fun. The restaurant is very child friendly and my nephews have enjoyed food there before. We all loved our meals. I had the baby... More
