We visited the restaurant twice in Malaga because it is hands down the best tapas you can find in the city! The service is amazing, they are very friendly and they frequently though delicately check if everything is to your liking. Also the wine pairing...recommendations are excellent!More

Best restaurant in Malaga, I even went second day just to get chocolate brownie. Food is amazing, probably best tapas I have ever tasted. And staff is even better. Especially thanks to Romina and Yolanda for giving us super fun experience. Also big cudos to...whole staff for surprising my wife with a birthday chocolate brownie. Also Wild Boar Stew, Anchovies, Code fish and Shrimps you should try. A place you must visit if you are in Malaga.More

Warm greeting on arrival and that set the tone for our meal! Excellent food - grilled octopus was a real star! Our server also gave fantastic advice regarding our wine choice. Definitely will return next time in Malaga!

Once again another fabulous experience . Wonderful welcoming and friendly but professional staff, great atmosphere, fabulous selection of tapas dishes and an excellent wine selection. Try the treacle prawns, the mushroom risotto and any of the specials on offer. Or really try anything because it’s...all lovely. Hoped to return from Scotland to our favourite Malaga restaurant end of March but not happening due to the current virus! causing havoc across the world! Hope all are well at Meson de Cervantes and look forward to visiting you all again in the future!More

The menu has an interesting selection of good quality tapas served in three different portion sizes. It’s a busy, bustling restaurant with a great atmosphere......but you’ll need to book ahead as tables go quickly.
