I wish I could give 6 stars! The tapas are to die for! Ribs and lamb stew are beyond comparison! Piña colada is the best we've ever had! Jeronica, our waitress, was very sweet! Highly recommend for an awesome evening. We sat here for 3 hours!

So after two weeks of traveling in Spain and trying various tapas places, this one (which is right next to the Alcazaba) is hands down the best we've eaten at. It had great service, lots of choices, the sangria was strong, and the price was right. I definitely recommend this place. We ate dinner here and the breeze comes through... More

Loads of choice even for a fussy lad who wouldn't go near tapas. Lovely fish with curry mayo especially. Service not the greatest but the food made it worthwhile

Staying in Málaga for a few days we found this restaurant close to our apartment. Having a vegetarain in our group is always tricky as many Spanish restaurants don't cater for them. Food portions were very generous and enjoyed by all. My son had fish which was lovely but spoilt by too much creamy sauce, my chilli was great with... More

We've been here on 4 occasions and loved every time. We have had quite a few dishes from the tapas menu and every one was delicious. We will definitely be going back on our next trip to Malaga.

This is much much better than you may think when looking the place from outside. This is pretty modern restaurant offering everything but the Tapas selections are delicious. We have tried much better rated places but still come back to this again and again. Fantastic Tapas, not expensive, and real Sangria, not the water mix you usually get. Must visit... More
