The food was a great disappointment as it was tasteless and plain. When I spotted the pictures of the meals in the menu, we knew we were in trouble even before we started. This was a beautiful place so I cannot understand why the food was not up to par. If you like plain food, then go. If you're a foodie, avoid and it's not cheap either. However, on the plus side, the entertainment was superb. A trip back memory lane. They had a couple of flamenco dancers and a singer which made up for our disappointing night. We went home hungry (we could not eat what we were served) but we enjoyed the atmosphere and entertainment.

This beautiful little cafe very close to the cathedral and it is lovely, it was a pleasure to dine there, sat outside in the sunshine - lots of passers by stopped to peer inside-it's a really beautful cafe inside.

We had a lovely salad and shared a Paella -both were excellent, plenty of bread and we asked for more-there was no charge -we were amazed that the bill came to so little even including two drinks. Do try and find this lovely cafe if you are in Malaga - I absolutely loved it. (I would love to revisit - on Thursdays they have Tango dancing where you can join in-in such a stunning atmosphere I bet that would be a fantastic way to spend an evening.)

The food here is good, but not amazing given that it is pricier than comparable establishments. Go only if you are starving and cannot bear the thought of finding another place (which we were).

Paella is served only for 2 (20 euros) and is decent. Tapas-sized portions were not available for some reason - but the Tortilla espanola was good, as were the gambas al pil pil.

Our waiter was unhelpful and brusque, so that definitely detracted from the experience.
If you ask for a glass of water, they will bring you bottled water and charge you a lot.
