Nice little restaurant which serves a very good cous cous - a bit expensive.

“A great surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012 via mobile

Sometimes you get a great surprise in taking a chance on a restarant. While trip advisor was 2 for 2 with great recommendations this trip, Al-yamal was a special treat for me and my wife.

The food, ambiance,and experience was very special. One of the great experiences I have had in a dinner. The green tea service at the end of the meal will always be remembered.

“best moroccan food and friendly welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

Recommend Al-yamal for lamb tangines, houmus, couscous etc. Very fresh food and great tastes. Beers/wines available but try the teas - mint tea is fantastic. Not chaep - €60 for two with wine but very good value.

“Lovely little restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2012

Really nice food, very pleasant owner.

Like previous reviewers, we were the only people in there as Spaniards clearly never go to bed and don't know that 8pm is the proper time to eat (it filled up later). The owner made suggestions from the menu and it was a good price for a lovely meal. We ate pastille, which was basically chicken strudel. It sounds odd but was actually lovely and not something I would ever have tried without him suggesting it.

It's well worth visiting if you're in Malaga.

“If you are looking for cus-cus, this is the place to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2011

Excellent food and service, we returned two times in the course of four days (and this just because they were closed on Sunday evening). Perfectly flavoured mixed meats cus-cus, huge portions, Rioja wine was fabulous, I still dream of the place. Mmmmmmmmm.....
