I love this place. The food is beautiful, really original, authentic tapas which tastes absolutely delicious. The waiters are busy but polite and professional,they work very hard because the place is full. So it should be because I can't find fault with anything, perfecto!

I don't have anything bad to say. We had the best night! The location and vibe inside was just what we hoped for. Crowded in the best possible way. The waiters were nice and personal, but not in the semi-uncomfortable kind of way. They were...More

One of the best in Malaga. Classic dishes cooked to perfection every time. Service is the best. Menu describes each dish with options for tapas, half racion and full racions. Order 5 or 6 half racions or equivalent per couple. Atmosphere is amazing.

We booked in advance a couple of days earlier as we'd read the reviews and picked up on the fact it is a very popular choice amongst both tourists and locals. There is a considerable choice of dishes but after some deliberation we opted for...More

We had 6-7 plates + lots of wine. 50E per person. Prices are reasonable. You can eat for 20E per person .... we weren't reasonable because it was so good.
