Great cozy place to get a drink

We were told about cafe malage by a server at another restaurant. They recommended it as a great place for a few drinks. The outside area was really cool and relaxing to have a glass of wine. We went after dinner so we didn't have any food but all of the dishes that we saw looked great.

This place has really good tapas and a great wine list. I recommend the solomillo, the empanadas, and the chorizo. Their paella was good, but just ok...I am somewhat of a paella snob though and prefer my paella with rabbit and chicken rather than with seafood.

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.

Old house turned into a restaurant, still needs a good deal of work but it has atmosphere. When the weather is right take your meal on the patio...either of the two days in Texas when it isn't too sticky humid and hot to enjoy yourself LOL. The food is excellent. I've always had great service though I know some who... More

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!
