interesting

a fantastic location, outdated decor, a host of local character seated around the long bar. the food was on the average to below average side, if you order wine, it will come in a full bottle which will be opened and charged, no matter how much you have - all in all, not a place for a romantic or... read more

Visited here for tapas on a trip into Malaga. Food was of a very good standard, the service was brisk and efficient as well as friendly - the waiter helped us choose from the Spanish language menu, and we shared a few laughs along he way, but the food was good and very reasonably priced. It is situated quite close... More

Contrary to the experiences of some other reviewers, we had no trouble with the staff, who were rather tolerant of our poor attempts to order in Spanish. We had a paella for four, which was the best I'd ever tasted, and also contained squid rings more tender than I thought possible. We were the only people sitting outside so I... More

First I would like to say I am writing about the beautiful restaurant overlooking a stunning garden close to the cathedral, not the photograph which is placed at the top of the page (cister, 4 y canon). The location was selected for a romantic meal having just got engaged. Sadly the service did not match the ambiance. The waiter was... More

The food was a great disappointment as it was tasteless and plain. When I spotted the pictures of the meals in the menu, we knew we were in trouble even before we started. This was a beautiful place so I cannot understand why the food was not up to par. If you like plain food, then go. If you're a... More

This beautiful little cafe very close to the cathedral and it is lovely, it was a pleasure to dine there, sat outside in the sunshine - lots of passers by stopped to peer inside-it's a really beautful cafe inside. We had a lovely salad and shared a Paella -both were excellent, plenty of bread and we asked for more-there was... More

The food here is good, but not amazing given that it is pricier than comparable establishments. Go only if you are starving and cannot bear the thought of finding another place (which we were). Paella is served only for 2 (20 euros) and is decent. Tapas-sized portions were not available for some reason - but the Tortilla espanola was good,... More
