Called in for a snack while visiting the lakes. Great menu for tapas as well as main meals. Sit on the frontage or up stairs one of the dining rooms,excellent views of the water. Friendly staff. Prices good for such a great location.

Food is excellent, prices are pretty low, and the views are, of course, way out of the ordinary. Highly recommended :-)

Surly service on arrival. Tasteless food that was poorly cooked and served warm. A poor example of Spanish cuisine. We have had better for half the price. The coffee was substandard. The Lakeside view was lovely, but we would not recommend this restaurant. Enjoy the view from another locacation.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch with stunning views and great service. Found a table with easy access for my Mum and also the disabled facility was excellent. Food was fresh and the service was swift but without the feeling of being rushed, all enjoyed in the sunshine overlooking the stunning lakes.

We stopped for a snack during a brief visit to the lakes. We opted for a bocadillo and a beer each, which were brought without much of a wait, despite them being very busy. We didn't have trouble getting a seat on the terrace - it's a huge place. There were many other dining options. The menu, and various eating... More

This Restaurant overlooks a lake in Parque Ardales not far from Malaga, Run by 4 brothers & we had a shared Tapas for four . As our first Tapas we were not sure what to expect but were amazed how delicious it was.

We always start and finish out weekly trips to the lakes in El Kiosko. The service is friendly and very quick. You are not left sitting pondering the menu. It gets busy quite quickly too, but has many areas to sit and doesn't feel crowded. We always chose the carilladas. (Racione) and some of the fantastically priced, lovely tapas. Really... More

The best thing about this restaurant is it's location. It has beautiful views of the lakes and is near the swimming areas and 'beaches' so perfect for coffee, lunch or early supper if you are there for the day. It is very traditional Spanish and the menu is a treat in itself- rabbit, boar, pigs cheek, zarzuela and other local... More

We love to visit this place on our frequent trips to the lakes. The staff are organised and really appreciate you ordering in spanish. This is inland spain, not the costa brava, after all, so dont arogantly sit waffling in english very slowly. The food is reslly good, very rewasonable and we go there time after time.

Restaurant offers lovely views over the Ardales lakes, however the food and service left a lot to be desired. Food was very low quality meat, with many bones and fat, service was also quite unfriendly. Out of the 2 restaurants we ate at in the Ardales lakes, and unfortunately the Mirador was much nicer than this one.
