“Great Tapas”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

On recommendation visited this tapas bar. It was very busy but got a seat at the bar which was great. Have to say that this is the best tapas food that I've had and the service from the extremely friendly staff was excellent. It is a very small restaurant but the staff manage it very well. Can't wait to return. Great value for money

“I'm going back there, that's all the is to it.”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

After a rest and a stroll along the harbour and through the throng of '3 kings' shoppers, we took another Tripadvisor recommendation El Meson de Cervantes and we're not displeased to find Argentinian founder and restauranteur Gabriel Spatz from the tapas bar there at the restaurant to greet us (he runs both places) along with some familiar faces amongst the other patrons. Great atmosphere, more excellent food recommended to match our earlier noted hearty appetites, including a wild boar casserole, a fab bolletus dish, risotto and another helping of flan de higos.

“Its up....and its good!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

After some reconn on the internet, including Tripadvisor, the decision was El Meson de Cervantes for a late monday night dinner. We tried to email same day and make reservations but no answer. We showed up at 2130hrs and got a table for two. Starter, main course and a desert....very good! The wine, recommended by the staff, muy bien!! The cost, 94 euro. We are here for anther 10 days and going again to that place.

“So good you can't stop !”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

We were in Malaga for a few days and decided to eat here because we had read great stuff about this place.

I must say, we had a terrific time and tasted the best tapas EVER !

We tried 9 different types of tapas and they were all delicious and sophisticated.

We had to order more because we couldn't get enough.

On top of that, the service is excellent and the prices are low. The quantities are just perfect.

For the first time in a long time, we left the restaurant fully satisfied.

If there is one place that's worth the try in Malaga, it's La Meson de Cervantes. Congrats to all the team and we hope we'll be back some day.
