Went due to Trip Advisor rating of Number 1 in Malaga and not dissapointed. A really busy little Tapas restaurant that serves up excellent food with a great choice of wines also. Albano introduced himself as the host and a very charming host he was. The choice of tapas was wide and all cooked fresh to order in the kitchen in full view of the diners. I say fresh to order, what you get here is tapas that are clearly authentic yet different and really excellent quality. Try the Prawns in Treacle. The Wild Boar stew was fantastic as was the Squid. Any room left, try the Fig Tart with Sweet Malaga Wine. Good value too with a bill that didn't make the eyes water. Thanks Albano, a great night.

We visited here on the first night of a 5 day trip and made plans to come back on the last night because it was so good!

We sat in the front across from the bar, the atmosphere is fantastic. Staff are super friendly and happy to help/make recommendations which were always fantastic!

Price is fantastic too. We are 5 dishes (half portions) and more than a bottle of wine for under £50 euro. Worth every penny!

We were fortunate in heeding the advice of other tripadvisor visitors and decided to give this restaurant a go. The patron Albano was most welcoming and was also happy to recommend both food and wine from the menu, all of which was delicious.
The prices are reasonable and the service was excellent. The atmosphere was wonderful and our family thoroughly enjoyed an authentic experience of tapas cuisine.

Went because of Tripadvisor rating. We weren't disappointed. Superb food and ambience. Great staff. I normally wouldn't thank you for cod or squid. Here they were sublime. The waiter explained it was a 'special cod'. Well, he converted me [only here though]. French chef.
Service great. Food wonderful. Reserve a table. Go.
