There is nothing we had that was out of the ordinary here, and although recommended to us, we wondered why. The service was slow and uncaring, the food OK, and the decor a bit shabby and uncared for.

Just over the main road adjacent to the Plaza de Merced this is an excellent tapas bar that was recommended to us via Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed upon visiting such. The service provided by smart young waiters was informed and efficient especially when we left the choice of tapas to them (and he didn’t hesitate to choose some... More

We visited the bar, did not attend the restaurant. Typical tapas place, with no tables but a long counter instead where you can see all the pre-prepared meals. The meat was great, as were the shrimps and snails as well. But the avocado salad was exceptional, with lemon sauce and tuna. Highly recommended!

I had a wonderful steak for dinner, but the very busy waiter spilled my wine glass ( luckily onto himself and not me) and didn't even present an excuse. I got a new glass of wine, though, but without anyone saying a word.

Cheap and tasty lunch with specific food from the region. A place recommended to us by our host in Malaga. Quit a rustic restaurant.

Our hotel owner at La Siesta round the corner from here said it was a nice local place and so it proved to be - not touristy and with seating at the bar, an outside seating area and an upstairs when it's busy. There's a good range of Tapas - not expensive and freshly cooked - and nice wine too... More

I have walked past here a number of times over the years and last night after a disastrous visit to La Campana, we came here. The food here is of a family cooking style, very traditional feel to it. The pulpito is fantastic, as were the habas con jamon, caracoles and the albondigas. To be honest, all the tapas looked... More

Recommended by the hotel staff it was real rustic Spanish cooking. Lovely flavours in a rally friendly atmosphere... definitely a locals place and off the tourist trail. Croquettes lovely, and princess or filled peppers tasty. Would highly recommend... no English menu.. So go with the waiters choice... isn't that what holidays are for 😄

This restaurant gives out-of-town visitors a more authentic type of eating experience.
