Excellent tapas bar and restaurant in the centre of Malaga. Good fresh food and helpful staff. Use the restaurant if you want to linger.

We just accidentally found this tapas bar, where we met this waiter Bruno from Portugal.... Very friendly service and superb food.

Friends and I visited here a few weeks ago on a week night on their recommendation from their previous ( and first ) trip.
The waiter was cold and surly and forgot to set the table with enough glasses and plates and forgot our wine. No matter, the menu looked good ( if rather expensive ) but the sign on the wall promised us " THE BEST STEAK IN MALAGA " and our friends' recommendations gave us hope. We ordered a few starters which were ok, nothing special, however the mussels were the tiniest I have ever seen and tasteless and dry, to the extent that my friend who ordered them left them .
All four of us ordered the Rib Eye Steak for a main. This was 18 euros, for which we received a tough, fatty, gristly ugly piece of meat and literally about eight french fries and nothing else. When we complained, respectfully and in Spanish ( one of our group speaks fluent Spanish ) their response was virtually " so what ?" NO apology and NO contrition or offer of ANY kind of compensation.
The couple next to us ( it was the lady's birthday ) had to send her kebab back THREE times because it was uncooked. The third time it came back BURNT. Coincidence or a sign of regularly bad service and food ? Horrible attitude from staff who literally couldn't care less, with even worse food. Surely restaurants have " bad days" but they should ALWAYS look after the customer if the food and /or service is complained about.especially with such prices and tall claims.Save your euros and find somewhere else, there are many other super places to eat in Malaga.This certainly WASN'T the " Best Steak In Malaga" , more like the WORST. Avoid like the plague.

We have been to Lo Güeno a couple of times both for "sit down" and for tapas.

The tapas are excellent even though it can be a little tight at the bar but that-in our opionion- just adds to the atmosphere.

The centre peace is the large BBQ just inside the restautant.

There both an cosy indoor dining room and nice tables outside on the street, which is in a pedestrian area.

I had a terrific Ribeye steak for 15 euros and my wife had pork. The wine was escellent, and so were the puddings. I have been 5 or 6 times to Malaga in rcent years and missed this place, Not the nesxt time!
