“Our best yet in Malaga”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

This is our 3rd visit to Malaga and while the destination is tops, the food has been mediocre to date. Garum has thankfully changed our views of Malaga dining. The restaurant is situated over looking the Alcazaba. The decor is stylish and chic. The staff are helpful, but unobtrusive. Most importantly the tapas is top end quality. All of our choices hit the mark. We can recommend the mushrooms, tosta, potatoes and squid. And to round off a great night, the best mojitos ever. See you again soon.

Great tapas, friendly staff and tasty desserts. Cheers to a perfect sangria. I recommend this place for any day of the week.

“Pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This restaurant is a little gem on the main Alcazaba street. Although not much visible and looking like one of those bars on the street it serves delicious dishes. We had there a tuna in green tea and sezame, and homemade chicken pate. Both of them great, particularly tasty was the pate. Portions served there are quite large.

“A real treat from start to finish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Given this restaurant's location so close to tourist attractions, we were apprehensive about trying it, concerned that we might be rushed and unsure about what to expect with regard to the quality of the food. We started with sangria and the tapas special of the day. The tapas special was excellent! We also had a few other selections from the tapas menu including the stuffed mushrooms which were wonderful. Almost went back again, and wish we had.
