Came back with a group of six for dinner, and this place never disappoints. Started with some white and red sangria, then on to the appetizers, which were great - I always go for the chorizo. The shrimp in garlic sauce and stuffed mushrooms are big favorites, too. I had the paella this time, and it was terrific, so much... More

If you're in the mood for a cozy restaurant that serves great food from Spain, this is the place for you. Every other Sunday they feature Flamenco dancing. Small place with their own parking and cozy dining area. Waiters were polite and on point. They host a buffet and their Sangria is great

Marvelous Spanish food, served by cheerful, highly professional waiters. Everything was perfect. Forget about flying to Madrid: drive to Trenton or Hamilton or wherever it is, instead.

Malaga came highly recommended to my wife and I by friends which we met there for dinner last night. We begun our evening with a large pitcher of red sangria...phenomenal! Then Chorizo a la plancha and chicken empanadas for appetizers as well as a second pitcher of sangria...wonderful! But the show stopper of the evening was my entrée, Paella a... More

We have been dining here for quite a few years. Food is always amazing and the homemade Sangria is the BEST. Service is fantastic and friendly. Never been disappointed there! We travel 100 miles to have dinner there! Worth the trip.

I heard a lot of great things about this place, so I visited it last week. What a great restaurant!!! We enjoyed our fantastic dinner. We ordered a pitcher of red sangria that was unbelievably good. We asked for shrimp and garlic along with a clams casino as an appetizer, both were excellent. And for main dish the special meat... More

I ordered there lamb chops and evidently they use a microwave - they were not hot, I sent them back twice to get the broil crispy effect and they had no clue as to what I was referring to. I had to bring them home and doctor them up as they were just plain bland and the avocado stuffed with... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor and we stopped in for a business lunch. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. The staff was genuine and knowledgeable. However we opted for their lunch buffet and was frankly frustrated and disappointed. Every item on the buffet had run out and it took a very long time to get refilled and then ran... More

We tried this restaurant on the rrecommendation of friends. All of us love Spanish food - especially the seafood dishes. We ordered sorbets for dessert and they came served in hollowed out food e.g orange sorbet in half an orange. The setting is lovely, service very pleasing and good parking.

My wife and I dined there recently and we always get the Paella. The food and service are great and it's all linen napkins and table cloth. The waiters are constantly bringing bread and water and do a great job providing service.
