The restaurant is simple, no frills, but has great food and friendly staff. We ate outside, but the place is old fashioned and has tables inside.

We ate outside, and the waitress helped us go through the different types of meat available. Our Argentina Malbec was perfect for the meal as it gave it more taste. Overall, we had a good meal and a nice time outside.

The rump steak and strip loin were both excellent and cooked perfectly to medium rare (which is how my boyfriend and I enjoy our steak). The owners are super nice and very welcoming. The restaurant is up a side road and not along one of those busy tourist streets. One of the best meals I've had in Malaga.

The staff is fully Argentinian and extremly warm and welcoming. We got good recommendations and the quality of the meat was outstanding. My husband loves and knows his meat and he barely had words, this... More

I was recommended this restaurant in Malaga. The menu is quite limited, mostly flank or skirt steak served with very little else ie no chips or salad. It was quite cheap but not amazing value as the food is very basic. Friendly staff as everywhere in Malaga. There are better places to eat in Malaga (and worse) but ok if... More

We visited this place last year and were very impressed by the food and the staff so it made sense that we return this year. The thing about this place is that it's not one of those chrome and glass restaurant s that you usually come across. This place is run by genuinely nice people who serve good food with... More
