Nice place to sit by the bar. Quite good selection of sides like cheese and Spanish ham. For sure it's worth to step in.

This is one of these very annoying places that stays open all day however if you dare to venture in to eat outside of normal Spanish eating times you are treated with contempt. After getting up at 4am to fly from UK to Malaga, we had skipped lunch to try to see as much as we could of Malaga before... More

We were in Malaga and wanted to try a paella. El Trillo has beautiful pictures of some of their dishes right on the exterior wall. The seafood paella looked beautiful - 8 large prawns, 8 large mussels, and 8 large clams. What showed up was pathetic in comparison to the picture! We got 6 very small shrimp, 4 medium sized...

We really enjoyed our dinner at El Trillo last evening. The food was very good, beginning to end and our server, Pedro was the best waiter we have had, thus far on our trip. He was super helpful and patient with us and very kind. We will definitely visit again. Great food.

We had a really nice meal here and the staff were very good. We sat outside which was nice and hardly could believe it was December. Very enjoyable.

We have used the tapas bar at the front of this restaurant on a number of occasions and have always had very good service, good tapas served from the bar and excellent wine. We were with friends and decided to have lunch in the restaurant area situated inside at the back of the restaurant. The head waiter was extremely attentive... More

The service was great considering we did not speak a word of Spanish. Quick to understand and recommend. Delicious paella and very generous portions as well. If you made a mistake, they were quick to compensate without any hesitation. The restaurant is located in the prime shopping area as well as being close to the pier. Best to go eat... More

A typical Spanish city restaurant with excellent spanish foods and typical, pleasant, if sometimes laid back service - but always pleasant. We have eaten there during the week, at weekends, during the annual feria (when they had a special feria menu) and other holidays. All round a jolly good place to have a lazy lunch or dinner. It is very... More

As usual this restaurant was very good. Great atmosphere and attentive staff. Food was very good. One of our friends ordered Cod which was very salt. We raised this with staff and we were not charged for this plate of food. Very good.
