lots of fun and great food

Dinner for six on a Saturday night. Always great food and a fun time .The wait staff goes above and beyond, serving portions are generous, and get the Sangria among the best.

After watching a Tyler Perry play a the Kimmel Center, my brother, sister, sis n law and I decided to wind down with a post show meal at Malaga's. Being a Saturday evening, it was busy and we had a 25 minute wait before we were seated. There is a nice bar area to while away the time, and we... More

Excellent food, friendly service, large portions, terrific paella. I had not been to Malaga for a number of years before going back there this past weekend. I was happy to see that the restaurant was still wonderful.

We like their appetizers, I always order their Paella. My wife's favorite is their little fish in olive oil. Brings back memories of Madrid. Service is always prompt and friendly.

Authentic cuisine with unique European flavor. Appetizers are delicious but some a bit prices, main dishes are outstanding, especially seafood We were listening to guitar show, it was so-so, that’s why it’s 4 stars, not five

In fact the Paella Valenciana was better than we had in Spain. The service was prompt and friendly. They made us feel like regulars even though it was our first visit. The garlic shrimp was also a hit along with the home made empanadas. The Sangria was also very good even though we typically wouldn't order it. The portion sizes... More

My fiancee began frequenting this place when they opened...they have been serving delicious food for 25 years. The lobster is the best this side of Maine...it is fresh and delicious. I know, I have gone to Maine for Lobster alone (lol), but this is far less expensive and much more convenient! The potato chips/fries are great. All the food is... More

The food & service were both above average at Malaga's. The shrimp in white wine sauce was very tasty. We were celebrating a birthday & the whole staff gave a wonderful rendition of Happy Birthday!

If you don't want to get on a plane and spend hours in the air, this is just as good. We went to Malaga on our friends' recommendations. They were right. The atmosphere is beyond friendly. The service is absolutely perfect. The food is superb. There were six of us at the table. We began with 3 appetizers. Portions are... More
