We tried their grilled steak & braised oxtail- we couldn't be happier with our chosen dishes! Attentive service & while we sat outside, they have great ambience inside with a few cubbyholes that very cozy for 2-4 people.

We went to El Trillo in Malaga yesterday, and we had a fantastic lunch. Great haute cuisine food, (lubina in salt!!!), very nice wine and special thanks to our waiter Pedro, who gave us very good advise. And good location as well, we will come again for sure!!!

There are more than a thousand restaurants in Malaga - we did not experience them all, but of those we did experience in over a week, this restaurant earned nine of ten stars! excellent food, exceptional service, and the perfect dining atmosphere.

El Trillo was by far my best culinary experience in Malaga. The quality of the food and service was second to none. The attitude and attention offered by the staff was equally exemplary. The preparation of the Sole at my table-side was an event par example in itself! I highly recommend El Trillo Restaurant to even the most demanding nevermind... More

We'd been looking for somewhere to enjoy a paella on our last night in Malaga, and found this place tucked off the main street. Very friendly, attentive service, in good humour - even in spite of some testy customers at the next table! We had a choice of tables outside (the rest quickly filled up), enjoyed a generous portion of... More

Nice place to eat with tasty food. Several local and traditional Spanish dishes which are fresh and delicious. Gazpachuelo Malagu ( €6) is very rich but nice. Tasty fish and seafood from shore of Malaga at reasonable price (€10-€15). Friendly staff. Recommend.

If I could give minus points now it would be the first time. What a horrible experience! Never go this place if you want proper food and good service. My spaghetti Bolognese was made of ketchup!! My husbands tuna was over cooked and the service was totally horrible. They didn´t bring us any plates for the over priced bead, my... More
