Great Service & Food

The service was great and the food was delicious. Only complaint was the lobster was a little over cooked and the clams were salty. The appetizers were great and the sangria was as well. We enjoyed our meal.

The Malaga restaurant in Hamilton has an interesting menu and seems quite famous for the Paella. The food is good though little overcooked as did not ask for preference. Ambiance was great and servers and management very attentive. A nice place overall for a fun night.

Malaga Restaurant is close to downtown Trenton and the Trenton Thunder Ballpark. This Spanish restaurant is a hidden gem. Malaga is owned by a very nice woman from northern Spain. The restaurant interior is pretty and the food is delicious. The wait staff is attentive and the owner walked around and briefly chatted with each table to make sure everyone... More

Came back for a second try and I was glad I did. I had the lunch buffet and went very early while it was not busy. The buffet consisted of u peel shrimp, several fresh salads, fresh raw vegetables, several rice dishes, lemon chicken, and a seafood mix. All the food was fresh, good and tasty. Service was fast, friendly,... More

I had the Chuletas De Cerdo "Arriero" (pork chops in garlic sauce). The food was good but not great. My pork chops were a bit overdone and the garlic sauce had a slight bitter aftertaste that I didn't care for. The rice was O.K. but also a bit dry. I tasted my wife's Shrimp in garlic sauce which was also... More

When working in Trenton had gone there on a regular basis and the food and service was great. Met some friends there last night and it was, to say the least, outstanding. Service was above the top. We were not rushed. Everything was good. I will definitely be back.

Went here a couple weeks ago with my boyfriend because a friend of mine told me how great the food and servers were. This place does not disappoint! We had a great time and the food and service were wonderful! They had delicious bread and oil and the sangria is really tasty! All of the food is traditionally Spanish. I... More

This is a terrific restaurant. We had a reservation for a party of ten - no problem! The mood is always festive, the wait staff is terrific, and the food and drinks are excellent! Try a pitcher of sangria - you'll have a few more! The garlic sauce is great on whatever dish you choose. I recommend this place for... More
