This is a lovely little place, and you'd be advised to book as there are not many tables. It has a lovely atmosphere, the staff are attentive friendly and the food was great. Portions are very generous, so don't over order. We would go again.

Absolutely fantastic meal at this lovely cosy restaurant. Fabulous friendly service. Apparently it has been family run for 35 years with Mother and sister doing the cooking with the men out front serving. Beef with plums and dried grapes was beautiful. Tender beef with flavoursome...More

What a wonderful experience, food, service and atmosphere all fantastic. Our food order was made on recommendation from the owner and was just perfect for the four of us. Very reasonable price considering the quality of the food. Will be returning very soon.

Description
Fundado en 1983, el Restaurante Al-Yamal fue el primer restaurante árabe establecido en Málaga. Aunque nos anunciamos como restaurante árabe, sólo es a nivel orientativo, ya que nuestra cocina es de origen Andalusí, dándose más en países como Marruecos, Argelia y Túnez. Al-Yamal significa “la belleza”. La cálida iluminación y las velas en cada mesa recrean un ambiente tranquilo y romántico que le adentrará en el mundo de las mil y una noches, en un sortilegio de embrujo y belleza, que le trasladará a la Córdoba Omeya en la que el músico gastrónomo Ziryad se sentiría muy a gusto. Todo ello acompañado de suave música andalusí, árabe, Maluf, turca, egipcia e incluso jazz y música clásica. Podrá disfrutar de nuestros vinos internacionales de Marruecos y Argelia, sin olvidar el característico té a la menta con pastas marroquíes para terminar.
