This visit was once again to celebrate our birthdays. The food here is as good as a five star restaurant but tapas size. This means it is possible to enjoy more dishes. The mushrooms, tuna and pork were all delicious. The best birthday meal.

We just love this little place, so we bring family and friends, and they are likewise excited. The food is always prime, but we have learned that five tapas serves us better than seven. We usually let the waiter decide what is best, and so far they have never failed. Amazing that it is possible to prepare food at this... More

Walking around the streets from our rented abode we stumbled upon this restaurant. It was indeed a welcome venue. Taking advise from our very good waiter, who spoke excellent English, we ended up with a fantastic tapas experience. The venue was very busy and frequented by locals, always a great indication. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

We really liked that place, the cook was unbelievable, surely the best quality of dishes and wines as well. As usual, Rafa was extraordinary by his suggestions. He just asked for what we liked, and prepared us the most perfect diner. You must go ! Mélanie & Fuerte Louis

During that trip we had dinner there on our first night in Malaga and we liked it so much that we had dinner there every night the rest of that... More

Decided to go here after reading other reviews - excellent. Lovely friendly service and different and interesting Tapas . Very, very small so we're lucky to get a table. Very busy but great atmosphere and great food and wine. Would definitely need to book for evening service

Ok we decided to come here for our valentines dinner. The restaurant is small but cute in a traditional cosy way and the staff were very friendly ensuring you felt special. That and because the wine was good is is why this restaurant gets one star. I would have given it 1.5 if I could. We ordered a few dishes... More
