Place was packed but they found me a place upstairs. It was completely filled with Spanish speakers. I had seafood for both courses. It's a nice touch that they offer a drink at the end: a Gin & Tonic in a glass you could almost swim in!

Not overpriced according to us, but extremely over-cooked. Good enough service, after changing tables from the first with hair and food from previous guests. Not a second visit.

My family were in Malaga for the day and searched out this place as it was recommended for paella. We were not disappointed. Location: Malaga is a decent sized city, and manoeuvring around by car proved somewhat tricky. After finally finding parking we walked through the Paseo Parque using the Paseo de España walkway (very nice park, by the way),... More

At the entrance of the main shopping street of Málaga you have a small street on your right side, just follow this street and you will see one of the best fish/sea food restaurants of Málaga! Every time I visit the city I go here. Also, the paella is pretty amazing here. Worth a visit when you are in the... More

A second visit. We were looking to eat across the road in a sister restaurant which was closed. Like many restaurants in Malaga you sit in a narrow alley. This one was free from wandering minstrels and beggars. A blessing. Great service, swift and attentive. My boss enjoyed large prawns in some kind of sauce whilst I went more a... More

No one spoke english which was a tad harder when ordering so we went with the Paella and it was delicious. From the atmosphere it looked as if everyone enjoyed their time there, we did.

We were a party of 13, all the dishes we are were cooked to order and extremely fresh. Very big portions, so be careful when you order. I had the mixed fried seafood platter, and it was enormous. Everything on the plate was very well cooked and tasty. If you like seafood then you will not be disappointed.

This place was recommended by a local, and we were anxious to have a little more than tapas. We had plenty. They give you large portions here. We ordered a dip (really an egg dish with langostinos and cod) that was very good, some fried cod with a spicy aioli and a grilled fish platter with a variety of fish... More

Visited Los Mellizos based on recommendations from the hotel staff. We were not disappointed. Got table without waiting time even if we did not have a reservation. The staff was nice and did a good follow up of the table. We ate a good paella mixta. Recommended.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. The fish should have been skinned, de-boned, and served without the head. Our food was prepared with minimal effort and zero creativity. It was boring and tasteless. The servers were busy chatting; we had to order our drinks repeatedly, we were not offered dessert or coffee, and one waiter was rude. Choose a... More
