Very nice tapas restaurant, another one you would have been unlikely to find without TA. There are three portion sizes ranging from tapas (small plate) to racions (full portion), although some of the small tapas plates suprised us though.

The food was incredible! Every single bite made me feel as if I went to heaven and came back, never tasted such good Spanish food before! We ordered the pumpkin and mushroom risotto, special duck of the day, asparagus with artichoke and mushrooms, and pepper filled with cheese! Would definitely be a YES recommendation to anyone and I will go... More

What a wonderful dining experience. We were welcomed by a charming lady who may of been an owner. The staff worked as a team and were great. We enjoyed the friendly service from Franco. The tapas and main courses were creative and oh so good. The atmosphere was inviting, warm and comfortable. This was truly a memorable Malaga experience!

Staff were very friendly and helped us order the right amount of tapas for our large group. Everyone remarked how amazing the food was, which is impressive as we have some real foodies in the group!

This is the best tapas place I've ever visited in my life. A visit to Málaga cannot be complete without going to this place. I strongly recommend to to order several tapas and let yourself be amazed, I promise you won't regret it.

An excellent tapas bar/restaurant. The high ratings are justified. Friendly and welcoming service, happy to talk through their recommendations in my pigeon Spanish (although their English was clearly better - so impressive courtesy in letting me try out my Spanish). Recommend the prawns in treacle, veal crouquettes and refreshing rocket goats cheese and red berry salad. Meat pancake thing a... More

Wow, we popped in here as a group of 11 with no reservation, the owner (I think) asked us to wait a few moments and managed to put together a great table in front of the kitchen in a full restaurant. We were recommended the tasting menu, which was fantastic, fresh innovative tapas so well presented and tasty, even some... More

Everything was excellent, especially the main dishes. Salad (spinach) was very nice, the 4 half portions of Sea bream, Secreto Ibérico, Entrecote and Wild Boar were simply amazing. I could eat here every day for the rest of my life, no exaggeration. The fig flan for a desert was really nice and special, the pancakes were the only thing which... More
