Food was amazing, service so friendly, went for my mums birthday and we were treated so well. Staff were great with my little grandaughter. We have been before and we will come back again. It feels like you are on holiday. There is a very nice atmosphere in this restaurant.

17 of us had lunch here to celebrate my mother's birthday, everything was fantastic, service, food and staff. Love this place and cannot recommend it highly enough. Ps, you have to try the wine tasting nights.

Malaga Tapas is a pretty unassuming little place. The location looks almost salubrious as you approach a row of units where this gem is one of several small places along St. Andrews Road. For anyone living in Pollockshields who's not tried this place, it's just a short stroll down Shields Road to the restaurant. Inside the restaurant, the main row... More

I went there with family and friends. The restaurant has a lovely ambience but---some of my tapas dishes were disappointing. I opted for the rabbit and gambas pil pil---- the rabbit dish consisted of its ribs ( virtually no meat) and another boney part ( a little meat but not much) and the garlic was burnt in the gambas pil...

As you can see from my other reviews I'll ALWAYS give a honest and thorough review. I visited Malaga tapas on the recommendation from friends. Having checked 5pm there is was a 20% off deal which was very good for a Friday evening. Having visited numerous tapas restaurants in Spain on immediate arrival at Malaga Tapas I felt I could...

great selection of tapas and reasonably priced - especially if you go a bit earlier and take advantage of the deal (pre-7pm). As always though, drinks soon seriously hike up the price, but with tempting wines and coffees on order it's good to treat yourself :)

We popped into Malaga Tapas as a lunch stop on a Charles Rennie Mackintosh(CRM) weekend en route to visiting his school on Scotland Road. Excellent tapas starter, tasty soup and tortilla followed by coffeeand biscuits. Wonderful atmosphere and very friendly staff

Staking a claim as my favourite restaurant in Glasgow. Amazing food; warm and friendly staff. Try the home made black pudding with quince. Swordfish delicious as well. Great value before 7pm: all tapas £2.99. Can't wait to go back. One request: ask the staff to smoke out the back.
