When in Malaga you must go to |El Pimpi. Well, that's how we feel anyway, and no visit is complete without at least one session here, preferably more. We were pressed for time on this visit and only managed to go twice. Love it, great...More

We had dinner here. Rather ordinary and unimpressed for such a big and well known restaurant. The staff did their job but with little enthusiasm. The food was cold (we had a mixed fish fish) and not top quality We were squashed in by others...More

This emblematic wine cellar built in an old house from the 18th century is a meeting place for people of all ages. It has welcomed many generations of artists, flamenco dancers or politicians. It is named after formerly popular city figures called 'los pimpis', young people who had helped ship crews or passengers and had become the first city guides. It is furnished in the style of Malaga, and offers local wines and delicious gastronomy which is very popular in the city. The soul of the restaurant is the lounge with the vintage wine barrels, signed by famous people, such as the family Picasso, the painter Barcelo, the bullfighter Cordobes, The Duchess of Alba, Carmen Thyssen and Antonio Banderas, who show the historical value of this place. This establisment is in the old town of Malaga, next to the Museum Picasso, La Alcazaba (the Citadel of Malaga) and the Roman Theatre.
