If you want a break from tapas (and fried food) and want some non-Spanish cuisine, you should try this place. You need to reserve a table since this place is tiny - 6 tables - and was run by a husband and wife team (who were pretty darn efficient). We eat a lot of hummus and this was probably one... More

All the staff were Spanish, not Moroccan, and the decor was a bit over the top, but the food was great, which is all you can ask. We had the lamb couscous and the chicken tagine, which were good and aromatic. Nice friendly service. Not a big place, so grab a table if you can.

We went there based on the reviews in Tripadvisor. The decor on the inside was fine. We were greeted and seated by the owner. The restaurant claims to be Arab and offer genuine Arab food. We are Arabs and the owner / waiter neither speaks Arabic nor English. Anyway we were given a single menu for the whole family. Then... More

We had a lovely dinner here. We took hummus and pita bread, lamb pinchitos (with awesome sauce) and vegetarian couscous and they were wonderful. For dessert we had mint tea with some Moroccan pastries, which where very tasty. The waiter was friendly and everything went just perfect for us.

It was our final day visiting Andalusia and wanted to try arabic cuisine. Place is really small and cosy. Just about 10 tables. Completely themed decoration. Didn't know what to eat so waiter made some suggestions and we loved it. Prices are reasonable (3 course meals with drinks - 35€). Definitely worth the visit.

We are two young French who love Moroccan food and couscous a lot. We decided to eat at Al-Yamal restaurant after considering the nice reviews on TripAdvisor but were very disappointed of our experience there. First of all, when we entered on the restaurant, the owner offer us seats near the entrance of the restaurant but five minutes later, 3... More

A smallish atmospheric restaurant in Málaga. Enjoyed a pleasant dinner on a Wednesday evening (we had made reservations in advance). Generous portions of authentic Moroccan dishes. Recommended!

We came here based on reviews on TripAdvisor and were very impressed by the initial appearance of the restaurant. The food itself was nice and of a good quality. However, I really, really dislike restaurants where you feel like they are trying to make extra bucks off you and this was definitely one of those. The owner made recommendations regarding... More
