Because this chiringuito was opposite our hotel this is the section of beach we used most often. The girl who brought the drinks and snacks on to the beach was so so pleasant and friendly and seemed to have boundless energy; I'm sorry I didn't get her name but she seemed to be the only one servicing the beach.

We were a table of six, as it was the evening we had to sit inside but the windows were open which afforded us a much appreciated breeze. Those that had fish enjoyed their meal, however, a couple of us had a steak which was as tough as old boots. So, if you are after a decent fish restaurant stop... More

This is a beach restaurant in front of the hotel we were staying at the beach, so a beach access can be done thru them. I usually go there to enter the beach and then order a snack with drinks. For me this is a place where their fried calamari is very exceptional and perfectly made like no other place.

We decided to have dinner here on one of the nights while we were in Malaga. The food is average. There wasn't much variety available for vegetarians. The veg paella was not cooked to perfection and had too much aubergines in it. The drinks were good and the service was very good.

We ate here and were a little concerned that it was not more crowded. By the end of the meal we could not understand why. The prices were reasonable and the food was good. My husband had the Paella for 2 but finished it himself, it was not that big by American standards.The dessert pastry was delicious and so big... More
