We sat outside on a busy Friday evening enjoying people watching. We chose a selection of four half racions for two people plus dessert which was plenty. All the dishes were good. Our waiter helped us choose a wine although we didn't go with his first choice as it was too expensive. His second choice, a Rioja, was excellent. The... More

Within 3 hours of landing in Spain we were sitting in Tapeo de Cervantes enjoying some amazing tapas and excellent wine. The place is small but does not feel crowded and the service was excellent. I let my sister (a Malaga local) do the ordering and not 1 dish was bad - in fact they were all excellent. A 'hole... More
