I'm a Trenton Resident and Malaga's you can count on great food. Whether you went last year, last month! The Paella is my favorite!

I went to lunch with a friend over the weekend. This place is a tiny jewel on the border of Trenton. I went because it was #2 on trip advisor for the area. Sangria was delicious with just enough alcohol. I had the Paella and it was great, with lots of seafood and sausage. My friend had the jumbo shrimp... More

Celebrated my birthday with my family. We had a great time. The company, food, restaurant host, waiter and cook were all terrific. The restaurant is casual and fine dining combined.

Visited Malaga restaurant with the family after a long day of travel. I believe that it is under new ownership and frankly it is an amazing gem much better than what I remembered under the previous management. We ordered a nice pitcher of sangria and some tapas to start our meal. Mushrooms in garlic with just a bit of spice... More

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and was excited to try it out, I've had Spanish food on the brain for a few days. We went on a Saturday night and expected to wait for a table as they only take reservations for 5 or more people. Arrived around 7 and only waited about 30 minutes, the place was packed.... More

I love this place but I do not recommend going at an off hour of the day. Make sure it's peak so the real chef / cooks are there. Ok that being said, this is a great restaurant I love their food. Among the dishes that I really like are some of the veal offerings , the seafood dishes ,... More

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
