Visited with my wife for our anniversary, the location was simply stunning with great views out towards the coast from its location just outside of Malaga. Ok, this is not a cheap meal place, but as a memorable dinner it ticked all the boxes. Service was attentive, all dishes we ordered were delicious, especially the paella cooked in black squid...

Great wine , Great food ! While they offered a wonderful paella they also offered several other spanish style options like the short ribs slow cooked for 48 hours, delicious ! Pork and fresh fish. All home cooked meals. Really an excellent choice with a stunning view. Highly Recommend it !

Booked having read reviews on TripAdviser. Located within a boutique hotel high in the hills overlooking Malaga this is a great place to eat Not particularly attractive decor but the views are spectacular. A menu that didn't offer fantastic choice but the quality of food more than makes up for that. I had foie gras which was superb followed by... More

We stayed at the adjoining hotel and ate here several times. The 20 euro menu is great value for a 3 course meal to this restaurants standards but its not widely advertised on site, so you always have to ask them for the details. It was usually a salad to start, a main from the cheaper end of the main... More

The restaurant is on the site of Hotel Villa Guadalupe. It is in a residential area of Malaga. If you don't stay at the hotel, you will need either a car or taxi to get there. The food was delicious and staff attentive. If you travel from the USA, expect much slower and relaxed service than what you are used... More

Beautiful restaurant with spectacular views over Malaga City. Located on a hill and set back a few KM from Central Malaga, the restaurant has a large terrace that has the most amazing views of the city. The night time view with all the sparkling lights of the city is quite magical in the summer months. The food is slightly less... More

We stayed at the villa Guadeloupe and had dinner at Restaurante Matador. It's a small, very private place with great views over Malaga and even better food. Both the croquettes filled with oxtail and the paella were amazing!
