This was one of the first tapas bars we ate at in Spain and it was disappointing. We only really got a table because every other restaurant was full in the area.

The sangria had an odd flavour, the prawns came out as a very uninspiring and not very flavoursome dish, and the chorizo we had was overcooked and chewy.

Look elsewhere.

The worst food in Malaga. I say this with confidence because it was inedible and hard to imagine how it could have been worse. I had the house specialty - barbecued leg of lamb which would be more accurately described as leg bone of lamb with gristle attached. When I ordered the dish the waiter assured me that the meat was off the bone which he denied when I complained. In fact he lied twice because there was no meat. My wife had octopus which had the texture of rubber and was equally inedible.

We had lunch here including tapas. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Service a little slow, but it was very busy. Food was very enjoyable. A nice busy spot to sit outside and watch the world go by.

The attention is good. The parrillada is perfect! The food is very good. Every restaurant is slow in Spain, so they are quite good :)

Taberna Cantarrana serves excellent grilled and fried dishes for all tastes and budgets. We chose a range of dishes including Spanish Omelette, cod fritters, grilled black pudding, barbecued chicken wings, chicken croquettes, steak and salad. The highlight of our dinner was grilled mixed vegetables which included incredibly tasty grilled asparagus, as well as the usual courgettes, aubergine etc. Some of our dishes cost as little as 2 euros, although the steak was of course more expensive!

There's a good wine list at reasonable prices, the bread was fresh and chewy, and the service was good, considering how busy the restaurant was. With it being a slightly chilly December evening, we were glad of the attractive flame patio heaters so we could sit outside. Taberna Cantarrana is right in the middle of Malaga and is in a great spot for people watching.
