I was surprised by some of the reviews, as we had nothing but a great experience here. Great tapas, good wine and an excellent view of the plaza.

Ordered several tapas. All very good. Best tapas I have had in Malaga as a vegan. My non vegan friend loved her tapas too. Will definitely return next time in Malaga. Staff friendly. Not that busy though! Had a very enjoyable and relaxed evening.
