This bodega has been recommended by my Malagueño colleague. El Pimpi is an iconic place, located in typical Andalusian house from XVIII century. Bodega welcomed lots of intellectuals, artists and Spanish celebrities. Usually it is overcrowded, particularly on Friday or Saturday evening. I would recommend you to visit this place at noon or early afternoon to enjoy the charming atmosphere.
Most of guests are complaining on quality of food. Well, you should know that El Pimpi is more a bar than a restaurant. It is a place for meeting with friends and chatting while drinking beer or wine in the hot summer evenings and enjoy tapas of ham or good cheese. You should not miss tasting the sweet wine Moscatel or Malaga Virgen, typical wines from Malaga region.
If you prefer fine dining, it is better to choose another place, otherwise you will be disappointed. El Pimpi is bodega based on Spanish tradition and way of living. If you want to feel real atmosphere of this coastal city and mingle with the locals, El Pimpi is the right choice. It would be nice to make a reservation particular during the weekend.
