“Just amazing food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed February 15, 2012

There used to be two of these, but the one that's survived is just as good as ever. Sacachorcho means 'corkscrew' by the way, in case you're trying to read the info on the menu and don't understand it! They don't do starters as such, but they give you an 'amuse guele' to begin with, which takes the place of most. They have a very cleverly based menu, which takes in everything from all kinds of meat, fish, seafood etc. We've eaten here every time we've been to Malaga, and the presentation of the food is amazing. It's sort of typical Spanish meets Jamie Oliver in a Hesten Blumenthal restaurant. But it's all its own. The food is delicious, presented with all the requisite of a terrific restaurant. The iberic pork with goronzola or any of the meat with truffle dishes are terrific. The croquettes are delicious. And don't think you have to order one thing each - there's plenty of room for sharing. Sweets are delicious. Service is attentive, but not in your face. They do tend to open a little later than the norm, so lunch is from about 1.40 on and dinner similarly right at the last minute, so if you're used to English eating times you need to make a little change. But it's worth it. The interior is cleverly done, the food always fresh and well cooked. They also have a pincho/tapas little bar downstairs - but go upstairs. Most amazingly, though it's a definitely upmarket space, the prices are very reasonable. Last meal we had in Feb was just over 50 Euros for two, including drinks. We left a 5 Euro tip. And the proof of the pudding is that the majority of the diners are Spanish and enjoy the food. You will too.

“Excellent menu of the day”
Reviewed March 13, 2011

Gone for lunch. Menu of the day, 3 courses, three options each. Perfect cheese and iberico croquettes. Good meat. Desserts to die for. And an excellent 'Ribera del Duero' wine, Hizan, for 15€ (20 $) the bottle.
