“Best meal in Andalucia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We spent 25 days touring Andalucia, and this restaurant was the best by a mile. Tables outside in the plaza are great for people-watching (lunch). The decor in the interior dining room is stylish and delightful (dinner). We had pre-lunch tapas, then returned for dinner after viewing the Morrocan/Spanish fusion menu. The Moroccan-style lamb and the Beef-steak with sundried tomatoes were both perfectly seasoned and cooked. Our waiter - Sala(din) - was friendly, efficient and informative. We discovered after praising our food to the heavens that the chef is English! Not expensive either, considering the quality - 65Euros for 2 x 2 course dinners, drinks and a bottle of the excellent house red

“Best restaurant in Malaga, Highly recommended :-) ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Love this place, food is excellent even though it is a bit pricy but it's good to treat yourself once in a while. You certainly won't be disappointed if you eat here. Can't wait to go back next time we visit Malaga

“Tasty tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We were staying in an apartment above this restaurant so was convenient for us to visit when we first arrived and were in need of a snack and a drink.
Service was quick and friendly, we had a very good bottle of cava and a few tapas dishes including some excellent chorizo, garlic mushrooms and potatoes with pesto mayo. All were beautifully presented.
We would return when back in Malaga

“Excellent menu del dia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

I wish I had found this place on my first day in Malaga, I would have come here daily! Had a wonderful late lunch of creamy parsnip soup and perfectly grilled skirt steak with yams, and a delicious fig cake with ice cream. Just heavenly. They offer menus in English and their wait staff, including the fabulous Juanjo, is very prompt and courteous. Sit out on the front patio for a very pleasant meal.
