The service was good and the quality of food above average of the city center restaurants. We took boquerones and gambas revueltos. Both were acceptable, although nothing special. We were... More

The place got suggested to us by a lovely men called Medi, who took us all the way from another restaurant just because we wanted to try zarzuela. The zarzuela was delicious, and the place was very friendly and nice, making sure we had a great time. They quickly picked up on our broken spanish but would have been happy... More

We had an excellent seafood stew at the restaurant, served by a friendly waiter. It was still early evening and not many dinner guests around so we were really taken care of. The food was local and very tasty.

We were in between museum visits on a very wet day. Many were closing as it was quite late afternoon. We were spoken to in the street by a Spanish waiter who spoke Canadian. He was very good and he got a lot of passing trade. He explained what each dish was. We went for the local paella which is... More

Had a very nice plate of fried fish (Malaga speciality) to share and a bottle of wine. Great quality for 20€ on offer. Restaurant was really busy but the staff were really attentive and apologetic about waiting times.

We were not too hungry, as we had travelled that day, however, the special looked interesting and it was, seafood casserole (for 2). It was like a fish broth with fish, shellfish and potatoes. Not too heavy together with a bottle of rioja, came to less than 45 euro. With 2 satisfied customers. We sat at the window on a... More

Stopped here for lunch on a days visit to Malaga, to rest our legs. Had the menu of the day for just €9.90 which gave us a choice of starter and main course with bread, glass of wine and finally coffee. Food was excellent and plentiful and was great to sit outside watching the world go by as we ate... More

We walked out after about half an hour of not having our food order taken. We were given a menu as soon as we walked in but other people who came in after us had their orders taken before us.
