   We ate here prior to a performance at the Cervantes Theatre which is very nearby. We walked past it to begin with as it's in the big square Merced and we thought it would be an expensive tourist trap however with time a little pressing and nothing else that looked more enticing we ventured in. (As an observation there were a lot of tables in the pedestrianised square outside equipped with patio heaters)
   Very glad we did as it turns out. Chill out decor, atmosphere and music with a menu to match. Delightful, very professional waiting staff. We had Moroccan Lamb with cous cous which was divine and Greek salad which was huge, full of interesting things, and absolutely gorgeous. The price was also excellent. Fabulous main course meal and a bottle of very good Sauvignon Blanc all for 40 euros including a generous tip which was thoroughly well deserved. We intend to frequent the theatre on a regular basis and will very much look forward to returning to this restaurant.

This is a MUST visit for people looking for amazing food...whatever your taste......We shared the duck spring rolls to start then we had the lamb and my husband the pasta......(chestnut,and mushroom pesto) wow!!washed down by the fabby house wine......
The staff are very friendly and attentive.....not forgetting the fab chefs of course!

The tapas is very nice and is well presented. The entrecote is soft and tender and cooked to perfection! Staff is friendly! Just a pitty we discovered this place on the last day of our trip, but if we ever come back to Málaga, we wil visit this place again!

Superb food , tastefully and originally decorated interior , well-situated terrace with nice view on the Plaza de la Merced . Unmatched original and clean restrooms , unlike many other public places in Spain . Food of the restaurant and tapa-bar is very tasteful , well presented , different and healthier ( fresh ) than most other restaurants in Andalusia . Price-quality wise very good especially the menu del dia . Excellent choice of wines . An oasis in the desert of mass food and a welcome change from the monotonous Andalusian cuisine . For those who appreciate something more refined .
