Many have told me about this place - and we finally checked it out with a group of friends. It was worth the trip to Hamilton. The restaurant is spacious and there is free parking. The service was great - a server was always at our table to refill our drinks. Try the sangria! The food was so good! Served... More

An absolutely delicious visit and experience. Wonderful, authentic food and superb service. They were very friendly and attentive. They even topped off our dinner with a free round of after dinner drinks. Definitely recommend and we'll definitely be back!

Just came back from a group luncheon to this restaurant. I heard it was good and also read good reviews on trip advisor. This was not the case. Their were about 25 people at the luncheon and the room was very small which made it uncomfortable. The chairs were on top of each other. The food was horrible. When I... More

Overall Malaga was a nice spot for lunch. I had the lunch buffet and did not order off of the menu. The buffet had a nice selection of items and was well stocked. Sides, salads, rice, vegetables, meat and seafood dishes were offered. I would go back.

Definitely my favorite restaurant by far. I love to eat fish and there aren’t too many places around Mercer County that could compete with the variety selection that Malaga has. Their langoustines are magnificent, and the Maine fresh lobster is exceptionally good by itself, so I skip the butter, just plain delicious. I could have trouble deciding what fish or... More

It's probably fancy enough for that area, but looks like a diner inside, to me. Appetizer: white asparagus- from the can, Shrimp and tough-to-chew Spanish sausage was swimming in Tabasco sauce, overly salty paella (tasted like Goya rice with the seafood). Deep fried Red Snapper? Kids meal: penne pasta with butter-$10??!! Overall, tasted like food from Cosco.

Been here several times. Everybody left pleased! Excels in every aspect of what a great dining experience should be. The menu is so varied. My husband even ordered goat stew. I hesitantly tasted it...amazing! My brother ordered a fish dish. It was the best fish ever. Their sangria is better than any I've had:). Customer service is great...it's like dining... More
