El Farolito was my first recommendation on my blog Eat Out Malaga and it was so for a reason. Great value for money, great meat, great atmosphere. Don't expect anything too fancy, the place is not one of those fashionable restaurants with no soul. It does have charm and above all, it offers fantastic Argentinian food at affordable prices (e.g. mouthwatering steak for around 8 euros). Not exactly a tapas bar, but with time, one unmissible staple here in Malaga. If you want to eat where locals do, this is a must. BTW they only open for dinner. Here's the link to the post I wrote about this place some years ago, when I started running my blog for the sheer pleasure of writing about one of my passions: http://eatoutmalaga.blogspot.com.es/2009/12/recommendation-1-el-farolito.html
