Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked a table here after seeing reviews on trip advisor, was a little sceptical as it is off the beaten track but what a gem of a place! Staff really friendly and food was amazing, my daughter is vegetarian, there was plenty to choose from and daily specials. Jackfruit tacos, chicken on bun with goats cheese and beef tacos, all freshly made and super value for money. Definitely recommend and worth booking a table as only small.

So glad we found this place on our first night in Malaga as we were able to return for a second night of delicous food later in the week and we weren't disappointed. It is about a 5-10 minute walk away from the main tourist area and you do have to go uphill, but it is well worth this small effort. If you don't fancy the walk, get a bus or take a taxi but get yourself here at least once for lunch or dinner. You'll be rewarded with a very warm welcome from the friendly, helpful staff, serving food that is well cooked and super tasty. It's not fine dining and the menu is not extensive but there is still plenty of choice to suit all tastes. Having also tried Italian, sushi, tapas and fine dining restaurants in Malaga, this was the one place we choose to return to for a second visit. If you're still not convinced... on both the nights we ate here, there were quite a few local people eating here too, that's always a good sign that the food is good value as well.

We went to La Caravana based on the good reviews and the fact that it is a short walk out of the main historic centre of Malaga which can get very crowded. It's a quite unassuming restaurant/eatery but the staff were very welcoming, the food was novel, tasty, filling and very reasonably priced. We did need help with the menu but the staff were very helpful. If you want something a little different and off the beaten track at a reasonable price, we would recommend La Caravana.

Pedimos comida para llevar de La Caravana por primera vez. Alvero y Vera son muy amables y acogedores. Han decorado el restaurante de una manera única e inteligente, lo que le da un ambiente acogedor. Teníamos el pad thai, nachos, un taco y un delicioso brownie con helado de vainilla. ¡Toda la comida era fabulosa! ¡Nos complació ver queso cheddar real en los nachos y que cada chip tenía un poco de queso o salsa o guacamole! Nuestro favorito era el taco. ¡La carne adentro era increíblemente sabrosa! La Caravana es una maravillosa adición a nuestro vecindario. ¡Volveremos seguro! ***** We ordered takeaway from La Caravana for the first time. Alvero and Vera are very friendly and welcoming.

All the food was fabulous! We were pleased to see real cheddar cheese on the nachos and that each chip had some cheese or salsa or guacamole on it! Our very favorite was the taco. The meat inside was INCREDIBLY flavorful! La Caravana is a wonderful addition to our neighborhood. We will return for certain!

Amazing spot . Highly recommend Was in town for the day with my wife and wanted to check out more of a local spot. Had great reviews so we gave it a shot . We love good food and local spots and this place did not disappoint Service was great and owner was a pleasure to talk to . He trained in the US so we shared that in common . Speaks fluent English Menu is both English and Spanish . We tried a few starters and all were delicious . Highly recommend the potato bravas. Also order the beef tacos and one of the best I have ever had. You can pick your sauces and finishing and I went with the peanut sauce option and it was perfect . Wife had the chicken and she loved it . Sangria was excellent and a huge portion . Owner complimented us with free dessert which I thought I would try a bite but couldn’t put the spoon down Overall highly recommend and on top of that we ordered two drinks , two apps and two entrees with a great cappuccino and the bill was around $50 Don’t miss this gem

Málaga holds these wonderful surprises where you least expect them. One of them is La Caravana. A small restaurant run by people from Chili (or cafeteria, but that doesn't really cover it) in calle San Millán with delicious food for a small price. Enjoy 🤗

We were staying nearby and got to the restaurant about 19.00 so it wasn't busy. The chef (owner?) spoke excellent English and patiently explained the dishes on the menu. I ordered a noodles dish which he cooked right next to me in the little kitchen and it was absolutely delicious, probably one of the best meals I have ever had! I really don't know how he did it, simply amazing; it was only 9euros but I would have been happy to pay twice that. My wife had a couple of tapas which were apparently just as good. This small restaurant has a friendly atmosphere and is definitely worth going out of your way to visit.

Firstly give yourself lots of time to find it. This is NOT a traditional tapas local. Food is basically a mix of Peruvian and Spanish - sauces are innovative and tasty! We had wonderful ceviche of dorada and a strip of wagu steak as our mains. IF I had one comment its that they are trying too hard - keep the dishes simpler. The staff are excellent at explaining the dishes and are really friendly - even the cook took time to discuss how one dish was prepared. They really want you to enjoy their small restaurant. In a few years I would expect to see them in the main area of Malaga. Go now for the current prices and quality!!!!!

Oh my goodness- this place is unreal! The food is beautiful; freshly cooked and adventurous. I never thought spirulina mayo would work - it does. I had noodles with duck and it was so delicious, husband had burger but this is no ordinary burger; they slice and cook the meat to perfection and everything works. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and love their menu. You must go before they go big; they deserve to! ❤️

Visited this restaurant on a Thursday evening so it was quiet, but that gave us the chance to chat with the chef who was so enthusiastic and loved his job and the food he served. We had a starter of plantain which was served with a "Chipotle sauce ". This was the first time my wife and I had eaten plantain and we were very impressed. Cooked to perfection, a slight crisp to the outside and tender on the inside. Next we both had a sort of fried crisp bread which had a top and a bottom and these were filled with a filling of your choice. My wife had lamb and goats cheese, I opted for beef and sauerkraut. Both were equally delicious. The food was presented and cooked with such great care, the young guy cooking was not going through the motions, he was putting his soul into the food. We decided against a desert, but enjoyed a shot of a special tequila before we left. A thoroughly pleasant evening at a reasonable price. Thank you once again.

In some ways this is like a posh burger place, but it's so much more. The main event are sandwiches, either in a brioche bun, or in a sort of fried corn bun, with a choice of different meats, fish, veggie - all of which are charcoal cooked for flavour. Add in one of a dozen different sauces / garnishes and it is done. The food is superb. We think the chef is brilliant and we were able to speak with him and thank him. The service is friendly (plus they speak English and can explain the menu which is helpful). It's a little out of the way, but worth finding. Love it!

This is one of the greatest places to eat in Malaga for sure. The restaurant is really cute and cozy and waiters were extremely friendly and helpful. They helped us to choose what suited our taste the most. The food is so juicy and fresh and so well made that it melts in your mouth. The chef is amazing and whatever he prepared for us was tasty. He made us some food that wasn’t even on the menu, he just made it on the spot and even treated us with a dessert that was unlike anything we ever tried (also amazing :) ).Even though we weren’t staying long in Malaga we came twice to this place. Huuuge recommendation to come and try this fanstastic food!!

Just happened to stumble across this restaurant on one of our Google searches, even though no menu online 100% would go! AMAZING food, all cooked fresh to order. Value for money, drinks were splendid and everyone who works there is passionate about the food they serve. We started off with an arpera each... But it was so good we were going to have the same again but just the filling (one of the choices) but the lady serving us sold us on the special, as did the chefs! Boy am I glad they did! It was unreal, fresh, light and full of flavor For 3 mains (2 of the normal menu and 1 special), a side and 3 drinks (alcoholic of course) it was just over €50! Amazing. We left happy full, not over full but very satisfied. Can't wait to go back there and try the other arepra they have to offer! Thankyou all for being so welcoming and attentive. I'll say it again . Amazing

Took a walk out of town to specifically visit this restaurant and were not disappointed. The staff were all very friendly and took time to explain the menu and it’s concept to us, a type of build your own meal. All four of us chose different things and we all enjoyed the excellent food. Would recommend taking time to try this great little place.

If the food quality is more important than a white tablecloth and fancy surroundings, Caravana is the place for you. We ate cheap and cheerful there one night, and ordered more extravagantly the next. From snacks to complex recipes, all dishes were served by staff who care about what they are doing. Even the stout was superb. Enter the compact cafe surrounds as a doubter, leave as a convert. It is located a few metres from the top of the steps, just a short walk from the tourist traps. Enjoy!
