Dined here last week for dinner. Cafe Malaga is a cozy little place in downtown McKinney. The inside is bright and inviting. The staff is attentive and quirky in a fun way. The food was really great. We sampled several different things. The goat cheese stuffed piquillo peppers were by far our favorite! The taste and texture were both amazing. We also did the chicken piri-piri (which was nowhere near as spicy as I expected based on other reviews here), the grilled prosciutto wrapped asparagus (nice flavor combo), the fondue (with 5 different cheeses every bite was a little different which was nice), and one of their cheese platters. Overall, it was an excellent way to sample lots of things. The atmosphere and the food sharing definitely lends itself to a romantic feel. Things came out as they were ready, so you could start sampling some while others were in process. They give you the option of a tapas size or an appetizer size -- which means you can sample more. The waitress was great about helping us pick the right size for each item. Overall, it was very laid back and not rushed -- which is great for a little place that was VERY crowded when we arrived. Definitely helps to have a reservation if you're planning for their busy time. I'd go back in a heartbeat!
