We have eaten at Malaga about 300 times the food is authentic Spanish and Portuguese cuisine, and their Sangria is the best we have had anywhere. The staff are very attentive and great at their profession! The owners are very sweet and their eyes are everywhere! nothing goes unnoticed, Nothing!. You will not leave there hungry or with out bags,... More

Great food. Everyone ordered different platters. Specials were good. Price was great. The area the restaurant is located is a little sketchy so beware of your surroundings. This is the only draw back.

It has been years since I have been to this restaurant. Not sure why. It was a good place to go way back then and it was a good place to be today. I started my lunch with the red sangria. Good choice. Two of us had aps. I had the garlic soup. Full flavored beefy broth with tons of... More

As a first point, Malaga is easy to get to, just east of the intersection of Route 129 and Lalor in Hamilton Township. The parking lot, although small, is effective, and I had a short walk from car to front door. One opens into the bar, with a set-up not unlike places in the 'Burg. There was a set-off room... More

Great Food, Great Service, Great Sangria, Great Prices. Nice place for couples. A little difficult to find but once you get there it was worth it.

Delicious sangria, excellent payaya. This restaurant has been around for decades and continues to deliver. Wait staff was attentive to our small group celebrating a civil wedding. Sirloin tips special was enjoyed by 3 people in our group. The stuffed chili appetizer was also tasty. Very nice meal and celebration. Nice job.

It was out of this world. I am Italian and love this food. the neighborhood is said to be scary, but, not there. they have a parking lot... More

Pre-ordered three paella treys for a new years party with friends and family. They have three parking lots. The restaurant is nice, staff friendly. A good place to get authentic Spanish food. Price is above average but well worth it.

Went for lunch to celebrate the holidays. All the food was very good. I had the shrimp in green sauce over rice. The bread was crusty good. Sangria was great. They did squeeze 6 of us into a small table but we made the best of it. Prices are ok. Private parking available.

Every year a small group if us get together for a holiday dinner at a new restaurant. This year we went to Malaga. We absolutely loved it. From the cozy decor, to the wonderful, friendly service to the food, it was perfect. The seafood is delicious and fresh and the bread is the best. The special empanadas as an appetizer... More
