“Perfect tapas!”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Delicious, creative, and served happily. Helpful with our language challenges as well. Very busy tiny spot but every morsel is perfect. We loved our evening despite having a difficult time finding this gem!

“The Tapas Place!”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

We did not have a reservation and found this cozy restaurant quite busy with an exciting atmosphere. We were pleasantly surprised to see the owner of El Meson de Cervantes were we had eaten earlier in the week. He told that he decided to open it because of having to refuse too many customers. It got even more hilarious when we ended up seeing the rest of the family at work. We ended up having six tapas including the superb Iberian pork,tuna,gambas and croquetas. We did prefer this local as it's more intimate. The place is well run by enthusiastic employees and their prices are reasonable.

“Excellent tapas!!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Off the main busy streets, this is a small brilliant tapas place. The place is tiny and tables didn't seem to cater groups of more than 4 people but you can always pop over to El Meson de Cervantes which is from the same owners and is a larger restaurant. The tapas are excellent, well presented and extremely tasty. Would definitely recommend you pay them a visit when in Malaga.

“A real taste of Spain”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

A small friendly traditional tapas bar which is well worth seeking out. Everything about this place is truly Spain at its best, the decor, the staff, and most of all the food!. We ate here and at the owners other restaurant El Meson de Cervantes which was only around the corner and the food and service there was just as good. SIMPLY DELICIOUS!!
