We enjoyed icy vodka tonics and a couple of appetizers upon our arrival at the hotel, and enjoyed it very much. The fish croquettes yummy. We had avoided trying these local delicacies for fear of a heavy, fishy flavor, but these were light and tasty. We also enjoyed an unusual combination of freshly-made potato salad with shrimp and tuna. Sounds... More

The restaurant of the Hotel Molina offers next to a competent, efficient and friendly staff excellent food in a nice setting. Price quality is excellent, good wines and if you want a fine dining and food experience, this is one of the best, if not the best, to go

The ambiance and music is fantastic, they brought really high level musicians. The food was ok and the heat was blistering (its set on an interior patio which doesn't benefit from the constant cool sea breeze of Malaga). Overall a good out to do something different with friends

The cafe belongs to the four star gallery hotel Molina Lario where we stayed. The cafe has a patio in between the walls of the hotel and also a bar on the rooftop with a view on to the cathedral! It has a hip and trendy atmosphere in particular in the patio where you wonder where the wind is coming... More

It was quiet when I visited this restaurant for dinner on our last evening in Malaga. The interior was clean and had very little in the way of garish and tacky hotel/restaurant branding. As for the service, I couldn't fault the waiters. Their good humour and proficient English skills went a long way to make our evening that bit more... More

The restaurant attached to hotel Molina Lario was very quiet when we dined, but the Malaga carnival was on so it was very busy in the small bars around. We had 2 courses & the quality & friendly service were excellent. We would certainly eat here again

El Café de Bolsa is the hotel restaurant of the Molina Lario although it also has a street entrance. Although there are numerous other restaurants in neighbouring streets my wife and I could not be bothered to check them out on the night we arrived, so after a quick look at the appetising menu decided on the easy option of...

We stayed in the Molina Lario Hotel in Malaga. El Café de Bolsa is situated in the Hotel (Groundfloor) - open to public als well. We decided to have drinks and dinner at "El Café de Bolsa" every evening during our one week stay. The Service is very nice and friendly. The food is very good and tasty.

We had several meals, although we did not stay at the hotel to which this restaurant belongs. We liked the athmosphere and service. Also the food was good
