We had dinner here and loved everything about this place - excellent food, superb service. The menu changes daily according to what produce the chef can source at the markets in the morning, everything we tried was wonderful. Very attentive staff, attention to detail and friendly beyond expectations. Highly recommend!

This is not the normal tapas and it is a really good thing. Everything does not taste very good but they dishes are all well prepaired with modern thinking. Friendly and mostly effecient service. I start to believe that you can't get great service through a whole dinner in Spain but I hope I will be shown wrong.

We stopped for lunch and had a great experiance. Victor was a great host and explained the menu for us. He told us what to try and how much to eat. Every dish was close to perfection. We are going back tomorrow to try more!

My review is based almost entirely on the dish in the title. It was simply delicious. Unusual, but the flavour was incredible. Not cheap, but friendly service and really do try this dish!

Our second time to visit this place. Both food and service is outstanding. If you're in Malaga you should check out this hidden little pearl in the heart of Malaga.

During our 4 week trip in Spain, this restaurant was something else...no ordinary tapas dishes, no paella, no grilled fish with chips, but wonderful and intriguing dishes with a twist. We were lucky to be served by charming and talented Viktor, who advised us to the secrets of this restaurant. We tried many dishes and they were all just delicious... More

On first appearances this looked a run of the mill Spanish restaurant and then the waiter came over. I didn't catch his name but if you're in Malaga now he has a shaved head and beard - possibly the best waiter I've encountered. Friendly, patient and informative - our waiter spent time explaining EVERY dish on the menu and making... More

We had Sunday lunch here. We sat in a quiet, cool corner, outdoors. Very good ambience. The waiter was friendly and patient. The wine(red & white) was excellent. We had fig salad, shellfish, omelette and Andalusian stew, plus a dessert. All were good to excellent. Great cuisine.
