We really enjoyed going as a couple but I have to say we have taken family and friends and all enjoy the food. The outdoors music on weekends are really fun. they have had great bands. We will enjoy it this spring and summer.

Great place to enjoy some fresh air, cool drinks, and some hot tapas with good friends. It's easy to miss it and walk past it, but you'll be glad when you find it.

You must try the stuffed sweet peppers and the Lamp Lollipop Chops! I hear the deck is fun in calmer weather!

mmmm....bacon wrapped dates should be a good reason for you to make it all the way up to McKinney to this quiet little place up there. The ambiance is pretty awesome especially if you are sitting out and it's not too hot or too cold. The service is very friendly and the tapas variety is great.

Great food, even better atmosphere. All the tapas are fantastic and the sangria is even better. Nothing better than enjoying the night on Cafe Malaga's patio amongst the trees and with live music!

Was here with my parents and children. We made reservation in advance as we wanted to sit outside. When we arrived they still just put to round tables together, which made really weird seating for 6 people. The childrens order took almost an hour, even if I asked several times. The waiter even lied about checking the order and said... More

Café Malaga is an awesome place to go and listen to live music on the weekends. They have great tapas. It is a nice place to meet girlfriends for lunch or happy hour also. If you are looking for somewhere to go on the weekend and you like live music and good food, Café Malaga is a hit!
