We wanted something off the beaten path and we found a small, quaint Mexican restaurant. Food great and served very fast.

This is one of best Mexican restaurants in Hot Springs area. We have enjoyed every meal we have had there. This visit we had a taco salad and special dinner, both of which we enjoyed very much. Service is quick and friendly. Only negative is Malvern is a dry county and no alcohol.

The staff was very friendly and attentive! The food....... in my opinion, terrible quality. We eat a lot of Mexican food and this tasted like it was dumped out of can. The chips & salsa were ok- but it all went downhill after that.

My family eats here every week! Sometimes multiple times a week! We love it! The staff is great and actually know it orders by heart! One of the best places around!

El Parian is our "default" choice for eating in Malvern. And the same can be said for almost every family in town. GM "Omar" runs one of the best authentic Mexican restaurants in Arkansas. The crew literally runs from table to table to ensure that all their patrons are well attended. No hunting your waiter to flag him down at... More

My friend recommended this Mexican over the many others in the area. The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. The warm tortilla chips and salsa was excellent and refillable upon request. My food was well prepared as was the rest of my party's entrees. I would definitely visit this restaurant again.

The service here is fast & friendly. Great place for lunch when you are on a time constraint. The portions are large on most menu items. They can accommodate large groups when you call ahead.

Great food at a great price! It is hard to find good Mexican restaruants north of the Red River. This is one of them! You get a great value, good portions, and cheap prices. The interior is fun and colorful. Would be a great for large groups and families.

Passed through on business. Good was amazing, service was great. Should have stopped eating halfway through my meal I was so full, but the food was so good I had to finish.
