7 of us out for dinner. Food was fantastic. Service very good. Place was clean and packed. Nice to hear so much Spanish - you knew the food would be authentic and it did not disappoint. Not expensive either. Just over €80 and we ate! Very good meal. Easy recommendation.

If you are in Malaga, Spain, this is a great restaurant to have dinner. They serve seafood very delicious. The seafood served at La Gamba Dorada is Spanish cuisine. Cray fish, Gamba, shellfish and other delicacies; it’s a very nice place to have dinner. The price is affordable. Once you make an order the meal is cooked on the spot... More

We stayed in Velez-Malaga for a couple of days and had dinner in La Gamba Dorada twice. Both times the food was delicious. Especially the sole (in Spanish: lenguado) and cod (bacalao). The staff was very friendly. Their English is not good, but they do have an English menu.

Traditional Spanish seafood restaurant. Bright lights and TV with football but great food and atmosphere. Beware the portion sizes are enormous, we totally over ordered. The food was fresh and delicious and extremely well priced.

The quality is very good, the price is as it should be for fresh fish and the style is real Spanish. Would recommend this restaurant if you like to eat tasty fish varieties.

Two of us went here for lunch. La Gamba Dorada is located in the centre of Velez-Malaga in a side street. It is a typical Spanish seafood restaurant/bar with tables with paper tablecloths and many people sitting at the bar drinking beer and wine and eating. The restaurant is very light and airy with modern decor. They specialise in fresh... More

Our family had a delcious dinner at La Ganba Dorada and we can confirm the previous reports about excellent food at moderate prices. Service was quick, food was very very tasty and the bill didi nor at all frighten us. They serve mostly fish, gambas etc and also have a small choice of non maritim food. Truely recommendable.

We visited this restuarant on the recommendtion of our hosts at the Palatcio Blanco. You need to request an English menu and then they translate into the spanish equivalent. You watch the fish you order leave the fridge at the entrance and go to the kitchen for cooking. What returns is stunning food at very cheap prices. Well worth a... More
